Engine Mechanical problem
1988 Buick Century 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 109326 miles
Several years ago (8), I was cheap and used gasket sealant to make a gasket for my leaking oil filter cover, that covers a CH-3970 filter that sits in a cup in the pan.
That was the last time I was able to change the filter. I've tried as hard as I can, using pipe wrenches and other things to get that thing off. It's never budged. I wish I knew what to do here.
That said, since it's unlikely anyone has any idea how to ever get this off, how long can I go before the filter disintegrates and starts causing problems inside the engine? Not that it doesn't have problems already.
Remember this filter doesn't have the metal around it, just on the top and bottom, so the paper was exposed.
have the same problem?
