Did SOA screw up something and forgot to include these filters in the maintenance schedule or forgot to remove them?
So I guess we need either keep an eye on these filters or replace them, or just ditch altogether...
no, these are not supposed to be replaced. they are there in case ther is some catastophic happens and metal get in to the oil, that it wont ruin anything more that what has already failed. there is another filter like this in the AC system also, right before the fixed orfice tube, and im sure there are some in the AT system on cars with the 4eats and 5eats.
