Napa also allows you to look up filters by using a keyword or the part model number. Using any of these search methods leads you to the list of correct filters for your car.

To understand which one of the filters on the list best suits for your needs, you should know your car's recommended maintenance schedule, which depends on the type of conditions you usually drive in. For instance, if you often drive in stop-and-go traffic conditions or on salt-treated roads, a high-performance filter is best.

Napa's site offers information to guide your decision about choosing oil filters, air filters, fuel filters or cabin air filters. In general, the gold and platinum filters are more effective in filtering out contaminants and protecting your engine against damage caused by microscopic particles. Napa also provides step-by-step instructions on how to change your filter once you've determined which filter best fits your needs.
