Precautions
The most common type of oil filter is a spin-on oil filter element. This filter element cannot be removed and washed. When changing the lubricating oil, the oil filter element must be replaced at the same time, otherwise it will affect the quality of the lubricating oil.
Be sure to check the upper seat of the oil filter before replacement. If the seal ring of the old filter sticks to the contact surface of the upper seat, please clean it in time.
