MOBIL-1 EXTENDED OIL FILTER M1-104A
The Mobil 1 Extended Performance Oil Filter M1-104A is designed to provide high-efficiency performance and protection for your engine. Here are some general technical specifications for this oil filter:
- Filtration Efficiency: The Mobil 1 Extended Performance Oil Filter is designed to provide excellent filtration efficiency, capturing and holding contaminants to protect your engine.
- Media Type: The filter media is typically a synthetic blend that offers a high level of filtration while maintaining optimal oil flow.
- Anti-Drain Back Valve: It usually includes an anti-drain back valve, which helps prevent dry starts by keeping oil in the filter when the engine is not running.
- Bypass Valve: The filter may have a built-in bypass valve to allow oil to flow in case the filter becomes clogged, ensuring that the engine receives oil even if the filter is blocked.
- Thread Size: The thread size is an important specification to ensure that the filter is compatible with your vehicle’s oil filter housing. For the M1-104A, it’s important to verify the thread size to ensure proper fitment.
- Gasket Material: The gasket is typically made of a high-quality rubber or silicone material to provide a secure and leak-free seal.
The oil filter helps remove contaminants from your car’s oil that can accumulate over time as the oil keeps your engine clean.
The importance of clean motor oil
Clean motor oil is important because if the oil were left unfiltered for a period of time, it could become saturated with tiny, hard particles that can wear surfaces in your engine. This dirty oil can wear the oil pump’s machined components and damage the bearing surfaces in the engine.
How do oil filters work?
The outside of the filter is a metal can with a sealing gasket that allows it to be tightly held against the engine’s mating surface. The base plate of the can holds the gasket and is perforated with holes around the area just inside the gasket. A central hole is threaded to mate with the oil filter assembly on the engine block. Inside the can is the filter material, most frequently made from synthetic fiber. The engine’s oil pump moves the oil directly to the filter, where it enters from the holes in the perimeter of the base plate. The dirty oil is passed (pushed under pressure) through the filter media and back through the central hole, where it re-enters the engine.
Choosing the right oil filter
Choosing the correct oil filter for your vehicle is of the utmost importance. Most oil filters look very similar, but small differences in the threads or gasket size can determine whether or not a particular filter will work on your vehicle. The best way to determine which oil filter you need is by consulting your owner’s manual or by referencing a parts catalog. Using the wrong filter can cause oil to leak out of the engine, or an ill-fitting filter could just fall off. Either of these situations could lead to serious engine damage.
You get what you pay for
Generally speaking, the more money you spend, the better the filter is. Lower-cost oil filters can contain light-gauge metal, loose (or shredding) filter material, and poor-quality gaskets that can lead to failure. Some filters may filter out smaller bits of dirt a little better, and some may last longer. So, you should research the features of each filter that fits your vehicle to determine which one best fits your needs.
