For 06 Civic, I reused my A02 OEM Honda Oil filter from last time. Drained old oil and filled it with Valvoline 5W20 synthetic blend.

Currently OLM says 50% and oil has 4100 miles and 5 months old; including short trips as well as 1-2 hrs highway speed drives, but overall combination of both.

While Oil filter has ~10K miles and 13 months old.

1-Should I change oil and filter now? Or

2- Continue another 3000-3500 miles and then replace both in fall?

Your thoughts or advice?

Honda says it's ok to replace the filter every other oil change. They don't put a 10k mile limit or time interval on the filter.

Personally, I would not reuse an oil filter.

My question would be is your Honda affected by fuel dilution? If it is I'd change as much of the oil as I could. Have you ever done a UOA and checked?

Never done a UOA and also don't think this model R18 engine is affected with fuel dilution.

I assume you have been changing the filter every time our drain the oil, this is only a one-off.

I personally wouldn't do it but if you must, I don't think it's a big deal if you re-use a filter for another OCI. Keeping the correct oil level would be more important.

Definitely replace both at the end of this OCI but I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

reading on Noria enlightened me as to the value of filter changes being most important, even more so than the best oil!!!!!

If I'm understanding correctly, its done 2 OCI's and you want to do three?

Personally, I probably wouldn't.

Only non-destructive ways I can think of to tell would be (a) differential pressure test, which you'd have to build, or (b) back-flush it and see what comes out.

(b) seems to offer the possibility of regenerating the filter, but you'd have to check that your procedure didn't damage it.

If you aren't prepared for the punk technology pioneering involved in (a) or (b), you could change it but cut the old one open and have a look, which might give you a guide for next time.

Not at all, oil filter is on 2nd oil. I would NOT do 3, unless it's a 2K-3K interval.

I am planning to cut this filter though!

I can never keep track of when i change and when i skipped. I just change them both every time.

If you're asking the question you are worried about it. go ahead and reset the clock and sleep easy.

Well said, from this time. I'll write mileage and date on oil filter with a sharpie or scratch on it.

It'll be a lot easier next time.

Keep it in and keep going. I've left my filter on for 2 oil changes for many thousand miles on my Element (same K24 as your TSX, and I run extended intervals to -2,000mi on the OLM with synthetic), which totals to over 14,000mi on the filter without significantly elevated silicon in the UOA. I've done the same on my wife's old 2009 Civic with the R18.

Install a new oil filter at EVERY oil change!
