Can an oil filter effect pressure


Recommended Posts


I have had two filter changes so far, the car came with a fram filter. I got some other brand last time and this time wandered into my local parts store and in a cavalier fashion without recourse to any lists said "the one for a Mexico will probably do". I ended up with a C104. New Mobil and away I go. Thing is the pressure's not the same.

She would always run at 3 on warm up, down to 2 and a bit running hot and 1 and a bit on hot idle. She doesnt make three now. In fact its all gone down half a bit.

So to my original question..... *confused*
