    Oil Change -Filter?

    I am changing my oil today and I am wondering if anyone has tried a larger oil filter than the stock one?

    I am thinking of going with the same filter use on the ridgeline which has the same thread (M20x1.5) and diameter (68mm) but is just under 1 inch longer (2.49 vs 3.35).

    As long as the filter doesn't end up hanging below the "scrub line" (bottom of chassis) I think you'll be O.K. You wouldn't want the oil filter sheared off if you run over something, or have a suspension/tire/wheel failure. It doesn't look like the stock filter is even close to being vulnerable.

    I agree, can't have it hang too low.

    I installed the longer filter an it looks safe

    Usually a quick and dirty way to increase oil capacity a little. Oil might run cooler, or last longer.

    Works for me Bill, LMK how this pans out because I like to run my oil into the 4k/5k range (synthetic) and this would give me a little more comfort.

    Sad to say, I did some math and you are only increasing the oil capacity by less than 2.68 ounces, minus whatever volume is taken up inside the filter by the filter media. 2 ounces is 1/16 of a quart. Any benefit gained by this extra oil is going to be impossible to measure. But maybe the small amount of extra filter media is worth something too?

    Keep in mind that the bypass valve pressure rating varies between applications, so that other filter may not be a good fit for the Juke's engine oiling system despite the fact that it is physically compatible.

    If you're worried about filtering capacity try a Purolator PureOne or Bosch DistancePlus filter.

    Got a nice new purolator filter yesterday for my change.. they were out of the Bosch ones but gave me that as a sub for the discount available, $25 for a 5.1qt jug of valvoline synthetic and a premium filter.. love the grip material on it!

    Cooler Oil, Means Better Performance and Longer Life

    I've been toying with this same idea.. I too have been interested in a larger/longer oil filter.. Just make sense to have a slightly larger or longer filter to me. For one.. the curved oil filter magnet can then be added to the filter along with the extra cooling capacities..

    To bad there isn't a curved connection that can be placed between the filter and engine to re-route for larger filters.. But then your getting into a whole new area, where you could even add a new oil cooling system.
