A Genuine Toyota Oil Filter contains a dual-textured element-rough on the outside, fine on the inside – which filters particles effectively and resists clogging. Non-genuine oil filters are thin and finely meshed, making them prone to tearing and clogging, and will have to be replaced more frequently.
Sealing Capability (for gasket)
For added durability, a Genuine Toyota Oil Filter uses gaskets made with heat-resistant, non-stick acryl rubber. Non-genuine filters may use gaskets that easily deform or deteriorate, making them prone to leaks. They may also use poorly constructed fitting faces which could cause engine damage.
Check Valves and Relief Valves
A Genuine Toyota Oil Filter has check and relief valves made of durable, heat-resistant rubber. They deliver long-lasting, stable performance. Non-genuine check and relief valves may not be properly constructed and could cause extensive engine damage. The check valves may fail to prevent oil from flowing backward when the engine starts.
Oil Filter for Diesel Engines
A Genuine Toyota Oil Filter for diesel engines effectively filters carbon. Non-genuine oil filters may fail to filter carbon. Non-genuine oil filters may fail to filter carbon, causing the oil to become dirty. This also results in black smoke emissions and increased fuel consumption, which can cause engine damage.
