Oil Filter adapter stud came out with filter

Postby NeoCloud » February 27th, 2009 09:35 AM

I went to go replace the Oil filter on my 92 LX Accord wagon and the double threaded piece of pipe came out with the filter instead of staying attached to the motor.I couldnt get it out of the old filter by unscrewing so I used a cutoff wheel to slice the adapter out of the old filter.Then I went to go screw it back on the motor with new filter and it didnt go in all the way about a 1/8 inch gap.I muscled it on,bending the new filter by accident ,but not much.It seems to work okay,it leaks a puddle about the size of a dvd box almost every morning but my dipstick only indicates minor loss.My question is:How would I go about replacing the adapter threaded pipe piece that holds the oil filter in the motor?

If it leaks that much, it doesn't work ok. Replace the bolt. Put a new o-ring in between the adapter and the block. It's easy to do, and much cheaper than an engine replacement. And don't tighten your oil filter so tightly that the bolt will come out, snug then 1/4 turn is all you need.

Remove the stud, and go the hardware store and find 2 nuts that fit on the stud.

Place them back to back near the tip and tighten against each other.

Put some oil on the threads and screw it in by hand at first.

Tighten it with a rachet or wrench.

Use two wrenches to loosenthe nuts and remove them.

Replace the gasket and put on a new filter.

The filter should be hand tight, then about 1/4 turn more.

Hope that helps.

There is an "allen" head style female hex slot cast in to the stud, which is how Honda tightens it in to the block.

The oil cooler "bolt" is hollow. It needs to be tightened down first, with a new o-ring (91316-PT6-003) between the block and the cooler. When it is tight, THEN you can install the new oil filter. Make sure the o-ring is in the groove when you tighten the stud down.[/quote]

First off I know exactly what part he is talking about. I don't look stupid, because this IS the way I HAD to do it. If you know of another way of doing it, then so be it.

You don't know me like that, because if you did you wouldn't have said what you said.

'nuff said.

I do know what I'm talking about, as I've done this repair on a couple occasions. What is so bad about my advice of telling someone no to take shortcuts and not settle for an oil leak that makes you want to dog someone you don't even know? Not cool at all :butthead:

Oops, thought the OP stated EX trim, not LX. Sorry. In this case, you could also use the allen head type setup cast in to the stud. On the vehicles equipped with oil cooler units (1G CR-X Si, 3/4/5G Preludes, F22A6 equipped Accords, F22B6 equipped Odysseys, plus others), the stud has a hex nut cast in to it.
