Hey everyone, I just recently bought a sweet 1998 wrangler 4.0 5 sp. While changing the oil I noticed the oil filter I bought at the part store is larger than the oil filter adapter itself. I went back to the parts store and they confirmed I was given the right one.
I changed oil, used the filter I was given and it seems to have sealed just fine. The filter that was on there was a lube Usa type of filter, but it was smaller.
In other carsbive owned, the filter and adapted were the same size.
To better explain what I mean, picture two coke cans stacked on each other. That's how the filter would look on the adapter.
I tried the search feature, to no avail.
This is my first jeep guys, cut me some slack
