2nd OC on the Titan and this time I had my phone handy to take a pic of the oil filter mount. First vehicle I've owned with an elaborate assembly to attach an oil filter. Seems odd to not have a lip to contain the gasket. The filter sits at a 45 degree angle and is easy to get to after removing a splash shield. Oil used is 7 quarts of QSUD 0w-20 with a NAPA Gold 7356. Lots of oil and a little filter. First OC was at 1k miles, this one at 5k. Might get a UOA at 10k and the oil was pretty dark as you can see.

That's the Oil Cooler, I don't recall a lip to contain the gasket on any modern vehicle as that's the filters job.

It seems like most filter mounts on the block have a lip outside the gasket from the machining. Thought it might be the cooler.

Small Block Chevies had a recessed oil filter pad, But didn't have anything to do with gasket support. Just the way it was cast & machined.

Wife's Armada calls for 5-30. After many UOAs with many different brands/weights of oils, engine really likes M1 Euro 0-40, I use the M1 110 filter.

I’ve never had a vehicle with a lip on that part. Always smooth and machined.

Is that stamped steel?

That's a pretty fancy stacked-plate oil cooler.

Same here.... I have never seen any "Lip"....

and I AM GLAD,

...because I generally will spin on a larger filter (if it will fit).

The threaded nipple appears to be the only steel part.

Everything else looks to be aluminum.

You are probably right. My Mazda looks like aluminium but it’s thick and machined. I would be careful to not gouge that mating surface, especially on this stamped version.

Thanks for the replies. The assembly is all aluminum. A larger filter won't fit, wish it would, and not sure how it would ever get gouged but I'll be careful.

My 2019 Ford Fiesta also has an oil cooler assembly where the filter mounts. It looks a lot like that.

The only thing I dislike about the Titan is that you have to loosen all those bolts to remove the plastic shield. It makes removing the filter more work than I’m used to. Nissan should have installed a hatch for filter access.
