Motor oil filter failure destroyed one of our customer’s 2015 Porsche Macan S engine. When people going to learn, they get what they pay for? In this case, high end car and a budget oil filter did not match.
This Porsche Macan came in with some knocking sound in the engine. The owner had an oil change done some time ago, at a well know, big Canadian chain’s car service. I wit-hold the chain name for legal reason.
They installed a Korean made oil filter, it get clogged. You can see the filter on the photos down below.
The clogged oil filter contributed to restricting the oil flow, in turn destroying the connecting rod bearings. Modern high performance Porsche engines must have the proper filters, seals gaskets installed or they will self destruct.
