1991 4.9 engine. I keep my engine VERY clean. I even armorall the plastic components under the hood to extreme. The filter is beside and a little lower to the air filter, at a sharp angle. When you change it, you get oil all over the engine! Then the oil goes on the exhaust manifold and puts a healthy stench in the cab when you drive. Why didn't they put it under the car near the pan like so many other cars? I mean you have to go down there anyway to remove the pan bolt. Just wondering if anyone elso has a beef with this? However it is something I can live with.
And one other thing. Why don't they just make ONE SIZE for all oil filters? They could just make one universal size for all cars, man all them numbers!
