Do you put oil in the filter when changing oil?
An age-old question is whether or not you should pre-fill your new oil filter before installing it in your vehicle. Instead of pre-filling the filter, we recommend first applying a little motor oil to the gasket and then replacing the filter. The motor oil will prevent the gasket from sticking or causing an oil leak.
What happens if you change the oil but not the filter?
If the oil filter is not changed periodically, the filter can become severely clogged, reducing the volume of oil passing through the filter and into your engine. Without this oil, your engine can suffer severe damage. However, the oil would be dirty, unfiltered oil that has bypassed the oil filter.
What happens if you over tighten oil drain plug?
If you over-tighten the drain plug, you can strip the threads. And while it’s harder to do, you can damage the rubber gasket atop the oil filter if you really overtighten it. Most likely, though, it’s just going to make it really difficult for the next guy to remove the plug and filter.
How tight should an oil drain plug be?
