The oil filter cleans the oil that circulates through the engine. If the oil filter is not changed on a regular basis it can get clogged up with impurities. This results in poor lubrication hence reducing the durability of the engine.
A comparison of the life of several oil filters has shown that the original oil filter lasts longer than adaptable filters. The original oil filters are perfectly adapted to the servicing intervals specified by AIXAM.
The price differential between an original oil filter and an adaptable oil filter is only a few euros. By contrast, the invoice for a new engine in the case of breakage caused by bad lubrication reaches several thousand euros.
