good post and pics. I'm about to do my first oil change in about 1000miles. Of course the 1200mile was already done by the dealer so now I'm going to do them by myself for now on. Are there any "packings" or O-rings, gaskets, seals that I should order along with a new filter element? I have the same instructions downloaded but I can't find anything about any oil-filter housing O-rings. I had a 93 Aero saab that had the same internaly type oil filter and there was a O-ring that had to be replaced everytime I took off the oil filter cap.
