oil filter question

i just changed my oil yesterday and the new filter i got from Autozone is a little bit smaller that the one i had previously, is this ok? when i added the oil back i was careful to make sure i didn't overfill it (considering the reduced capacity as the result of the lower profile filter), i checked the stick constantly..

The S in S16 means short.Nah just kidding it will not hurt anything all though most of the Chrysler filters(PH16,PF13,ect)I have seen are all the same size but on GM you can use a PF47 in place of a PF52 and the 47 is quite a bit shorter than the 52 but all in all if the gasket is the same and the threads are the same it will work.(in most cases) BTW that STP filter is the typical size Chrysler filter so what is the the brand X filter on the right???

Looks like a Wix to me, which is a very good filter.

chrysler is strange sometimes, my 97 calls for a ph16, but what came off of it is a ph3980. the ph 16 will not fit,threads are different, yet thats what all the lookups say. it took 2-20 mile round trips to autozone to find that out!as long as the gaskets and threads match, there should be no problems, i use to use a shorter filter on my 68 charger to clear the headers, a ph 16 in place of a ph8, i think. much better than unbolting the headers everytime you wanted to change the oil!

That is strange a ph 3980 is used more on GMs That is the same as AC Delco PF52 also the same as the PH 3387A but longer

yeah, thats what autozone said. it was used on the diesel engine on the earlier jeeps(mid 90's i think) i didnt know they made a diesel jeep, but it was in their book.
