500 mile oil filter dissection

I dissected my oil filter tonight. Changed the oil and filter yesterday at exactly the 500 mile mark.

I put a white paper towel in my oil drain and noted no metal flake or other crud looking with a bright flashlight.

I'm happy to report that the innards of my oil filter are extremely boring. Nothing at all to report. The media had no visible metal or other crud.

I'm going to send a sample of the oil off for analysis but I think (hoping) it will be rather boring with nothing but normal break-in wear.

Nothing to note in the paper from the engine oil drain...

Oil filter dissection

The fuzzy looking stuff is nothing more than the paper fiber from the filter media

For those wishing the car is worth something down the road, save the used oil filter it is something that you can't get at the dealer down the road and is what we call being correct on all parts the car was built with.......

Only if you think it will be worth something down the road,:rolleyes:
