Default Change Oil Filter WITHOUT Changing Oil?

An "unusual" question, if I may. 2007 Vue 3.5: Last night, I accidentally dented the NAPA Gold oil filter (installed last weekend when doing an oil change). Can I replace the filter without draining the oil first?

I don't know if the oil filter is above or below the oil level in the crankcase.

Thanks, Supe

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Yes you can. You'll just need to add around 1/2 quart of oil to get the level back to the right spot. No worries!

I change my Filter out after 2500 miles on my 5000 mile oil change intervals just for piece of mind

Excellent. Thanks for the quick replies. The last thing I want is a ruptured oil filter. It'll be mid 60's today in CT, so I'll use the "plastic bag" trick and replace it tonight.

Yes, same here I use Amsoil in all my vehicles and change my filter at 3,000 miles and change the oil at 6,000 miles. All you have to do is top off the oil, usually about 1/2 to a full quart depending on the size of the oil filter.

Knew someone who drove a lot & changed filters 4:1 over changing the oil... depends on your driving habits.
