Periodic maintenance on a vehicle is advised for every 3000 to 5000 miles. That maintenance should include a change of the oil filter.
Oil Filter Replacing Instruction:
1.Clean filter contact surface on filter mounting. 2.Lubricate filter rubber gasket with engine oil. 3.Tighter filter until the gasket contacts the seat of filter mounting.Then using SST,give it additional 3/4 turn to seat the filter. 4.After adding the oil,run engine for 3 minutes and check for leaks.
What is the micron rating for this filter? is it equal to oem or better?
As an ASE Technician and ASE Parts specialist ASE-XXX-5994; I would highly discourage both cap and filter. The cap composition; as well as the oil filter do not meet OEM quality in my opinion. The filter has no distinguished company associations. This is a $15-20,000.00 engine should a failed cap or filter happen. I’ll leave the decision making to all customers reading this.
