Purely theoretically, the size of the oil filter is unimportant. The main thing that came up on the thread and landing surface. But there are much more important characteristics. For example, the pressure at which the bypass valve will operate is important. We will not fall into the abyss of filtering and confine ourselves to the conclusion that it is wrong to select filters according to thread and seat.
It is only necessary to install what is prescribed by the manufacturer. And if the filter is made poorly, then the consequences can be very diverse. In the worst case, it is simply squeezed out and the oil flows out into the street. Here, however, a motor stop after the oil pressure lamp comes on can save (and even then not always). But, for example, if the spring of the bypass valve for some reason was not strong enough, then you can drive with an actually idle filter in oil that does not pass the cleaning, and not even know about it.

How can it be difficult to replace candles if you do not have a V6, a V8 or an opposer? Learn from Honda to design engine compartments and complicate the ignition system … Problems in Jazz come from where you don’t expect. And where do you expect (for example, from the variator), everything is relatively good there. We continue the story of the reliability of the first generation – the previous part with a description of the problems of the body, interior and electrics is here.
Brakes, suspension and steering
Front disc brakes have served all their 10 years before the planned bulkhead calipers. Resource discs and pads are usually 50+, even with a CVT. Here are the rear drum brakes sometimes fail. Not because the design is bad, they just forget about their maintenance, and the wear and corrosion of the fasteners of the pads over time lead to a “chatter” of pads and their displacement from their places. Often everything ends with the replacement of the drum and the entire filling – the flown block usually grinds everything into dust, including the brake cylinder. Continue reading
We usually take two things lightly: separate waste collection and timely replacement of filters. And any – both oil and air, so fuel and salon. We will not talk about garbage now, but we’ll talk about how bad filters destroy the car.
The oil filter is luckier than anyone: it is changed with the oil. But with the rest, negligent owners often get worse. The air filter can be replaced when it starts to be sucked into the manifold, the fuel filter – when the engine stops responding to the gas pedal, but the cabin… Well, if it gets too cold in the winter, and starts to rot out of the “stove”.
The task of any filter is to clean the environment in which it works. Everyone knows this, and you should not remind about this for the hundredth time. We will take a different path: take a set of original filters and their analogues of not the highest quality, compare them and see what consequences the consumable for two rubles made in garages can lead to.
