Purolator One seal problem? #4764216 05/21/18 05:48 PM

I recently installed a Purolator One spin-on on my Odyssey, turning it hand tight (as I do with all my filters). The next day I saw a few drips from the filter, and used a large wrench to tighten a little more (with some damage to the flimsy can). Has anyone else had trouble getting a Purolator One spin-on to seal, or is this one a fluke?

I had a slight leak with a car quest red made by puro and didnt notice I had a leak until taking off the filter during oil change. No rattle. The Elantra has plastic covers underneath. Since you damaged the filter, I would highly recommend changing to a new filter and brand

I really hate filters with such thin cans.

Cans so thin they crinkle when I handle them turned me off. I get Mazda OEM or Ultra and they feel like a billet compared to thin can units. ED

Get your measuring sticks out. You will find all the three consumer Fram brand lines including Ultra, are not thicker.

Did you double check to make sure the seal gasket of the last oil
filter came off? This is a common sign of the dreaded double gasket too.

Will a Purolators paint job be the next culprit?

No matter what filter I use, I always remove the base gasket and clean out the gasket groove with carb cleaner on a Q-Tip. Carb cleaner will remove any paint overspray and leave a nice clean surface for the gasket to seal on the filter side. I've seen a lot of paint overspray on Purolators.

What exactly is the purpose of this other than to waste time and carb cleaner?

Ive never once observed a leak from that point. I'd venture to bet 99.99% of the population, most of whom have no clue what brand of filter they have, all of the rest knowing little more than a brand name, have never encountered this either...

I've been changing oil for over 4 decades, never seen this as a leak path, and never carried out this ritual either. I just leave the gasket sealed to the filter base same as it came off the production line, and lube the side of the gasket that mates to the mounting surface with a thin film of motor oil.

I like perfection and knowing something is right where it counts - and because I can.

I've found crud and paint overspray in the base gasket grooves more than once. Oil filters are not made in a clean room. The threads in the base plate mounting hole are usually pretty dirty too, so they also get cleaned.

I'm preemptive, not going to wonder if the gasket might leak while out on the road. I'd rather ensure it's right when installing, and it takes a whole 2 minutes to do, and a little squirt of carb cleaner on a Q-Tip goes a long way in this case. Try it, you might like it. grin2

It is, as most gasket grooves and base threads are not clean enough for my liking.
