Hello People

I want to know that Is it necessary that everytime I change the oil, I have to change the filter too?

It all boils down to the type of filter and oil you use. I personally change it every oil change regardless of filter type.

Length of OCI - what filter you will be using and how dirty your engine is - helps answer your question better.

What vehicle is this and is it under warranty?

My 1997 civic I keep the oil filter on for two OCI. Engine is very clean inside.

For my Dodge caravan I will start to keep the filter on for two OCI (using a Fram ultra).

Do you do know what filter is currently on the vehicle?

You will get so many opinions on this one that you just need to go with what makes you comfortable.

Most vehicles can have an oil filter change every other time. As the filter loads somewhat its even more efficient. There are a few exceptions, but not many.

My Jeep which has an over sized Fram Ultra is going 3 5K OCI's before changing it. Changing my oil without changing the filter is much quicker and saves me a good bit of time.

Camaro since its under warranty gets a filter every time

I agree with the other posts, what's your situation?

I change out my oil filter every oil change.. mainly for peace of mind and it's sitting right next to the oil pan easily accessible. My OCI's are 6months or 5-7500k

I feel it's good practice changing out every oil change.

How much does an oil filter cost? $3? $7?
How can it not be a wise investment for the longevity of the engine?
And for another thing, without a filter change you are not changing the oil.
You are changing-out some of the oil.
And no, one does not remove, drain, then reinstall a used oil filter.
Filter comes off, you toss it. And on goes the new filter.

Cut your filters open and judge the condition. If it looks new, use it more next time. I change every time. I want a fresh new filter which is at it's lowest restriction and best filtration. 2cents
