How Your Oil Filter Could Be Affecting Your Prius
The oil in your engine is vital to the health and functionality of your car, and if it’s not properly pressurized, that lack of pressure can damage your vehicle. At Baxter Performance, we have created a solution to your cold-start problems! If you are thinking to yourself, “What about my hybrid?” your oil filter may still be impacting your vehicle more than you know! Here is how your oil filter impacts your Prius or other hybrid models.
Your Prius or other hybrid purchased in the last few years may run on a cartridge oil filter. These are easy to replace, but they have one drawback: they can cause prolonged dry starts. Toyota cartridge oil filters do not have anti-drain back valves, spin-on filters do. When your engine turns off, it loses oil pressure, meaning when it starts back up, it can run for several seconds with no lubrication. Even in your hybrid, this is bad news. If you are looking for a way to preserve your car for years to come, check out our spin-on oil filter adapters!
Your hybrid is constantly deciding whether you use gas or electricity to move. This transition relies on smooth engine function to make the switch effectively. If your engine has become damaged from years and years of cold starts, or is currently in a place where cold starts are common, the engine damage can spread to your hybrid system. Shop our oil filter adapters today to solve your cold start problems!
