    Yeah, my filer is rated for like 1500 more miles than the oil, it’s close enough

      Yes, obviously, every time

      >Rated for xxxxx miles
      That's just advertising. It changes with application and the best thing is to just change oil / filter at regular intervals. Don't ever consider a mileage claim on a product, even the cars themselves, you should change your oil and filter every 5k miles at most even if the manufacturer says 20k (apparently a thing now lol).

    buy an oil filter cutter. make your own call based on what you find. It depends too much on the filter you use and driving conditions for any anon to guess.

      I don't understand this. Either you find glitter or you don't.

      If you find glitter or worse, shards it's straight up rebuild time.

        If you do an oil analysis, you can see contents without glitter.
        And by the type of metal, you can tell if it's bearings, cam, etc etc.

        But in this case, cutting open the filter would allow you to see general carbon buildup.

      Is it possible to reassemble and continue to use a filter after it has been cut open? I had no idea.

      Meh, I'd rather just spend the $7 on a new one.
      Cutting a filter open to see what it caught might make sense, but I don't think I'd ever consider using one that has been cut apart and reassembled. At that point the cost seems trivial compared to using some hacked up filter back on my car.

        You cant.
        I think he means for the next filter. Like if you cut it open at 5000 miles, and it's really clean, then the next time, you can take it further.

        It's not a bad idea to cut open filters anyway. I do it all the time, but mainly for aircraft engines.

      Being unable or unwilling to perform the most basic of maintenance on your vehicle isn't really a flex. Really pretty easy to put your car on one of your lifts inside your fully equipped 3800sqft shop and change the oil.

      Unless you’re sending your chauffeur to change your oil, you’re not saving any time or money taking it somewhere to change it.
      It takes longer to drive to the shop than what it takes to change the oil if you know what you’re doing.

            Total amount of my time to change oil is less than 5 minutes. I do it when i come home from work and take a shower while it's emptying.

            Yeah people who talk about time/effort of an oil change are dumb. Like a woman saying laundry day takes 3 hours when 2.5 of those hours is fricking off while they wait for the machine.

            I was sceptical but had to tryit, tired of dealing with "oem" rubber seals that disintegrate and crush washers.

            It works great, easy to use, since the flow is slower it drains only an inch or two from the spout instead of from the pan hole flying 8-10 inches out at first.
            I managed to screw it on sideways and slightly down, so it isnt lower than the pan and a possible hazard. YMMV.

    An oil filter for my cars is like $7-$10 depending on the car. Why would I double its replacement interval? Plus I cut it open and inspect it since I do UOA with every change. I know for certain 100% that my engines aren't making metal with every change this way which is nice when 3/5 of them are old and have over 100,000mi on them.

    I don't. Because it's just not necessary since the filter has much more filtration capacity vs the lifespan of the oil, it adds a huge amount of mess to the process, and it really doesn't do your car any good. I do topside oil changes so the whole job takes me 5 minutes and I don't even get a drop of oil on my hands. I will change the filter every other oil change and even that may be overkill.
