“It’s just an oil filter change; I have been doing that my whole life…” This is one of those moments that experience may not translate. Oil cleanliness is extremely important to our equipment. The techniques, methods, and steps technicians use to change filters may be different even from unit to unit at the same station. Great care should be used to protect the integrity of the clean side of the filter pot to prevent carnage like is shown these photos.
