oil filter return tube just broke
Changed my oil tonite and when tightening the cap I heard a crack. It was only about halfway tightened. I took it off and the whole top of the return tube was broken in pieces. The inside of the cap has a crack too. All thats left of the return tube is the round cylinder part, or the main tube with the groves in it.
My question is, if i get all the plastic pieces out of the housing can iIput the filter in and drive the truck a short distance? I have no other transportation tommorow and I'm hoping to find a local dealer who has the part in stock. Thanks for any help.
