Odd oil filter Question
Do any of you guys know how much oil will come out when removing the filter with the motor still fill with oil? Is it the same no mater if the oil is drained or not?

I drained and filled the oil without changing the filter on my cross country trip. I have 700 miles on the oil and want to just change the filter as a temporary(week or two) solution. I know its not ideal but I'm just doing it til I have time next weekend to do a full service on my car.

Just wait and change it in a week.

I'd guess about a 1/3 of a quart between what the filter holds and what would be held between the pump discharge and filter inlet.

I'm basing that on about what it takes to pre-fill the oil filter on my 2012 2.5 EJ253.

Just wait until next weekend, not worth the mess and the hassle
