Question Oil Filter Magnet

Is this a joke or will it help in reducing engine wear?
As we all no how much crap is running around in the oil while running in.

mmmm

personally i would make it a must to change oil every 5000 rather than spend money on stuff like that

Not sure if that works but certainly if there are magnets in the bottom part of the sump it will collect most metal filings that will damage the internals.
I bought a sump plug with a magnet on the end of it from VPW which does a reasonable job.

Was that mobile 1 synth 15-50w?

I use that in my 292,000km R31 skyline.. Works a treat.. Thinner oils are useful depending on the temperature ranged used or what sort of driving you will be doing.

Laminge magnetic sump plugs don't normally cost the earth.. You could magnetise you current sump plug for almost nothing.
Filter should catch it anyway.. But it would be nice to see if you have a major problem everytime you change the oil.

I use one on my oil filter, don't know if it works, but if it does, I'm well ahead.

The time between oil changes is more important though.

Why not just get a oil filter coverand stick a strong magnet inthe bottom.
Should do the same thing.
