What a great website. When I change my filter I may well pull it apart to compare. Anybody done this aleady with the oem filters.AS said before I'd change the oil myself after reading this..
It's not the same filter as your rover but it is the same as mine - I was rather shocked -- so went straight off to honda! BUY OEM as even the unipart ones look to be identical to halfords ones (admittedly not the worst but for £3 extra not worth it)
Whenever 'I' recommend changing the washer as part of the routine I always get challenged on it?:wtf:No problem.
Going to do the change yourself?
The engine holds 4.5 litres exactly with a filter change. I'd suggest only using a genuine filter and replacing the sump plug washer at the same time.
Shouldn't cause an issue, but best to go back to the right stuff at the next change.when i went to the garage they've put Full Synthetic in the car...
Is that a problem ?
