Volkswagen GTI Oil Filter

The oil filter catches contaminants and particles in your engine oil that could harm its performance or its longevity. To get the best performance and long life from your Volkswagen GTI, the engine oil and filter need to be changed regularly. When you need to do an oil change on your VW GTI, you'll find all the parts you need at AutoZone including Volkswagen GTI oil filters from brands like K&N and Fram.

Changing an engine oil filter is a simple process, and it can be done in less than a half hour with your oil change. Most GTI models require a cartridge filter that's changed under the hood. Regardless, you'll need to gain access underneath in order to drain the engine oil first period then, lift the hood and open the housing where the oil filter is, pull it out, and install the new one in its place using new o-rings. Then fill the oil in the engine and fire it up.

    When to Change Your Oil Filter

    The best time to change your engine oil filter is during an oil change. The interval depends on how and where you drive, as well as the oil you use. When you use synthetic engine oil, intervals can be as long as one year or 15,000 miles. For conventional oil, it's best to change the filter every three months or 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Consult your owner's manual for the best interval for you.

    The filter only has a polygonal top to ease grip. It is not much, but sufficient for the relative easy access on the engine. A caveat with these filters is their bottom adaptor, attached to the black plastic ring visible at the bottom, that sometimes remains on the engine. If this occurs, it can be easily dislodged using an Allen key on the center orifice.

    Wanted to try different American brands to see what worked and I came across this. Even after tracking and using for 4 to 5 thousands miles the filter seems to do a good job after inspection. Great pricing too so that helps.
