Even pre-filling the filter may become quite a mess, and it’s unlikely that it will be worth the trouble in the long run. Instead of pre-filling the filter, we recommend first putting a small amount of motor oil to the gasket and then replacing the filter to ensure proper sealing. This will prevent the gasket from becoming stuck or allowing an oil leak to occur.
How do you change an oil filter without damaging the engine?
After positioning the oil pan underneath the old filter, use your oil filter wrench to carefully remove the filter from the engine. NOTE: Clean the engine’s mounting surface using a rag, making sure that the gasket from the old filter is not attached to the surface. Hand-screw the new filter into place after lubricating it with a little oil.
Is it OK to install a dry oil filter?
It is OK to put a dry filter in an engine unless the engine is completely new and there is no oil in any area of the engine at all. I don’t see the need in adding more oil to your engine because it already has a very thin layer of oil around the moving parts. At the time of a routine oil change, you do not completely drain the old oil out of the engine.
