Question:
Do Oil Filters Have Check Valves?
Do Mobil 1 oil filters have check valves? My filter is installed with the drain pointed down and so I want a filter with a check valve to minimize how long the engine is dry after starting.
-- John Thiessen, The Woodlands, TX
Answer:
Anti-drain valves are installed in the filters for those vehicles where the manufacturer requires it.
