1. All Nissan's use the same size of filter. Filter size must not be an issue these days.Armadaof1 said:Any thoughts on the size of the oil filter on the Endurance V-8? Compared to any other filter I've changed, from domestic V-8s to import four bangers, this is the smallest by far.
Was this just an attempt by Nissan to save some bucks and have commonality across its engine line - or is this the right filter for taking care of 5.6L motor and 7 quarts of oil?
Alternatives are out there - adapter fitting for a larger filter in the OEM location, or an AMSOIL type remote two filter setup.
2. You must never have changed the filter on a modern GM V8. The 5.7 liter LS1/LS6 also has tiny looking oil filter.
