The oil filter ensures your engine is supplied with a constant flow of oil which is free from dirt and contamination, thereby minimizing engine wear. To achieve this, the filter pores must be fine enough to stop the contaminant particles, but sufficiently thick to allow the oil to pass through.
The requirements for a quality oil filter do not stop there. In addition, the filter must deliver high oil pressure without leaking. The gaskets must withstand temperature extremes without deformation. It must be able to handle vibrations without shaking apart. A defective oil filter can cause the engine to lose oil pressure. This will increase engine wear and eventually cause the engine to cut out completely.
Saab Genuine oil filters are designed to match the exact specifications of Saab engines and the quality of oil that Saab recommends. That way you can be sure that the filter can handle the pressure up to the next service and that your engine’s life is extended.
