Does the M1-204 Oil Filter Gasket Need Lubricating?
From looking at some other FAQs it is not clear to me whether the M1-204 Oil Filter gasket needs to be lubricated or not prior to installation. Should I lubricate it or not?
-- John M. Baltz, Apex, NC
The Mobil 1™ Extended Performance M1-204 Oil Filter is pre-lubricated so lubricating the gasket is not required. However, putting a light film of oil on it is recommended to make installation easier and it also helps with the removal process.
