Okay. I will give it a thought! I hear great things about that oil. Our last snowblower lasted 4 years before it fell apart. Engine was still strong but the lousy parts are what you get with an MTD.

torque the filter til it gives, if not loose tear the rest off then hit the center with a propane torch for a while and then while hot a screwdriver and hammer. Then move up to the acetylene torch.

Your car must be a weak example, or my memory is rusty because the last time I drove a Camry of that vintage was a decade ago in HS. But I thought it was decent enough for what it was, its not Autobahn burner but running at 80 was never an issue.

I don't see where the OP mentioned textured grps in the context of installing or removing filters. But wouldn't a turn of duct tape on the filter solve the problem?

The fluctuation is a sure sign of air trapped at the thermostat. When I install them I drill a 1/8" hole in them to let air out. With air against the paraffin that has to expand, it can't sense the real temperature. You got air in it. I always
