Installation Instructions

  1. Use proper protective gear. Used motor oil should not come in contact with bare skin. Engine oil may be hot.
  2. Place a drain pan under the oil filter and unscrew oil filter.
  3. Clean mounting base, making sure the O-ring from the old filter is not stuck to the filter mount.
  4. Apply film of clean oil to filter gasket. Do not use grease.
  5. Screw new filter on until gasket reaches base contact. Then tighten according to instructions on filter using tightening guide markers.
  6. Check owner’s manual for correct oil specification, viscosity and amount.
  7. Add oil to “full” on dipstick. Idle engine for 5 minutes and check for leaks.
  8. Shut off engine and recheck oil level after 5 minutes and top off as necessary.

*FRAM Group testing of average filter efficiency of 8A, 3387A and 4967 or equivalent FRAM Force models under ISO 4548-12 for particles greater than 20 microns.

**Greater than 3X the functional life of Nitrile ADB when tested per SAE HS806 hot oil and Anti-drain-back test.
