Changed the oil in my pilot today at 3700mi (MM was at 20%) but left the filter on( Honda A01). Was that a right move it should have been changed oout as well? I feel like i did ok although would like to hear y'alls opinion
Honda usually says to change the filter every other OCI - check the maintenance schedule.
I actually didn't believe you until I looked it up
That's rather curious
Not really. If people read the manual, that's actually been standard for lots of cars.
Curious for me. Every car I've messed with has had it spec'd oil and filter.
Saying "if people read the manual" is somewhat self defeating as most wouldn't have access to manuals of new cars, let alone memorize them and stay up to date.
I do question these MMs. You're at 3700 miles on the oil and you're at 20%. On my 2018 Pilot I currently have 4800 miles on the oil and I just hit 50%. It's been a hot summer here, I'm mostly city driving, give it the beans all the time and do a fair amount of idling. Hmmm....
I'm trying to get 20,000 miles on a Fram Ultra using multiple OCI's.
It can do it according to my experience. Bigger question is is it restictive from the satrt like one of mine seems to have been.
No, it's not flow restrictive according to data from Motorking (Fram Rep) - LINK
Around 5 PSI delta-p with 9+ GPM of hot oil flow. That's pretty much as low as oil filters get in terms of delta-p vs flow with hot oil. If you read the link I gave, there are more details.
Flow - (PSID)
3 - (1.7)
6 - (3.0)
8 - (4.1)
9.7 - (5.2)
