Question by heaven’s child: what are the symptoms of dirty oil filter and does it make sense to change the engine oil?
without changing the oil filter ? but the more important question to me is how does a dirty oil filter affect the car. thanks

Dirty oil filters will clog oil flow and spread gunk around the engine. You should change the filter with every oil change and only use synthetic oil. Synthetic costs more but your engine will run for a lot longer and need a lot fewer repairs. It pays off in the long run, big time.
