oil filter

joe_mnMay 13, 2011

2010 camry 4cyl. drained oil last week. filter wrench failed. put in new oil. ordered new filter wrench. today i changed filter. filter housing is plastic and has drain. got about 1/3 qt. black oil. checked dipstick to add new oil and it is gold. think filter was in bypass? dipstick oil looked like honey. why was filter oil black? odd.

maybe the clean oil draining thru the dirty filter acts like a coffee maker? drain is at filter bottom so oil runs thru filter? not like a canister style filter where as you unscrew it, the oil just drizzles out the top.
