2007 F250 Oil filter cap doesn't fit
I just changed the oil for the first time on a friend's 2007 F250. The cap is a lot taller than the one in my 06, and it doesn't push the filter down in the housing like it should. It also does not have the area in the top that the filter snaps in to. I'm using an OEM Motorcraft FL-2016 filter.
I had a hell of a time getting the old filter out of the cap, so I was wondering if anybody knew if there was some aftermarket filter that you change both the cap and the filter at the same time. I actually had to cut the filter apart to get it free of the cap.
On a related note, does anyone know the part number for the OEM oil filter cap and anywhere that might stock one on a weekend?
