A combination oil filter is used on the M11 engine. The upper section of the filter contains the full flow filter element while the lower section contains the bypass element.

During normal engine operation, oil circulates through the full flow section of the combination filter and into the main oil rifle. If the full flow section becomes plugged to the point that a 655 kPa [95 psi] pressure difference exists across the filter, the bypass valve opens in the oil filter head and routes unfiltered oil to the main oil rifle.

NOTE: Engine oil pressure will not decrease as restriction in the full flow oil filter increases.
