BENT OIL FILTER

2009 Honda Accord • 24,000 miles

Bent the oil filter when installing. Doesn't seem to be a problem, no engine oil light no leaks, Will this filter become a problem when driving on highway or a prolonged trip. Will their be reduced flow to or from the filter. Seems OK but just wanted to hear your opinion.

Very doubtful there is going to be a problem unless it's a really big dent.

Watch for oil leaking onto the ground under the engine and keep an eye on the oil pressure gauge or warning light on the dash. If the light comes on while you're driving or the pressure drops real low, stop the engine right away. Serious damage can be done by running the engine just a few seconds with no oil pressure.
