Hello all. Is this the oem filter cap for this engine? I’m having a No start condition and I am down to looking at the needle on the instrument cluster not moving.

Could be your issue - might not though. Only way to find out is to change it out ASAP. Did this happen to start after an oil change? Does your engine have an even crank and not speeding up or slowing down on a certain cylinder?Good video. Thanks. So I’m going to check the reservoir tomorrow while cranking. If all is well with oil coming up then I’m safe. If not, well, what is the worst case scenario? I’m already seeing the oil pumps are about 500. But can more damage have been caused? It has been long crank starting for a week now when cold, still cranks quick when warm.
IMO, it is not good for the HPOP to starve it for flow, let alone starve the lubrication system (and both can happen when your oil drains out of the filter straight back into the oil pan). As stated above, change that ASAP
I actually found the top of the anti drain back valve on the bottom of the housing. I was able to pop it back on and it springs and seats normally.If i'm reading it right, you found the bypass valve from the top of the oil filter pipe in the bottom of the housing? If so, replace that filter pipe when you do the cap. With it broken, oil can bypass the filter - which is a big no bueno.
In one post you say the "oil filter bypass" was lying at the bottom of the oil filter housing and in another you say it was the "anti drain back valve".
Which was it?
The oil filter bypass is in the filter housing standpipe. The "drain valve" is the one that snaps into the floor of the oil filter housing and is closed when the oil filter is installed and pushes down on the drain valve stem.
IMO this oil system is too critical to keep trying to start it w/ the wrong cap/filter combination - even with a make-shift spacer. IMO you are seriously risking a bypass of your oil filter as mentioned by jokester00.
btw - lots of people erroneously call the "drain valve" the "anti drain back valve".
The anti drain back valve is what retains oil in the system when the engine is shut off (it is a check valve). It is also at the bottom of the oil filter housing, but it is part of the piece that also houses the oil cooler bypass.
