No I don't think so.
I think when the filter clogs the engine burns fuel harder in ordrer burn off the soot build up - thus putting more stress & heat on the moving bits and the oil.....risks longer term damage.
Don't understand it, but that how it was explianed to me.....
Still arguing ith Nissan as to why the consider a part they replaced under warranty only a year ago and has failed again is nothing to dowith them.
Their latest excuse is......"the car can't have been driven to the "specification conformity required", as the filter would clog under proper use. I'm not sure how runs on 50-200 miles most days cruising at 2,000-2,500 revs withthe engine at operating temperature for most of the journey is not "driving to the conformity specification required" - although to be honest I don't know exactly what that means!
