When I change my oil filters I have noticed that the back oil filter doesn't have as much oil in it as the front oil filter. Does anyone know if this is normal??

Thanks

Hi Demack.
I too do my own oil changes on a 1999 Patrol with TD42, I use Z9s and havnt noted and huge difference in amount of oil in them, even the extra time it takes to remove rear filter may make some difference to the amount that drains out,food for thought.
Sorry I cant give you a tec. answer

Does your Patrol have 2 filters the same OR does it have a "by-pass" filter at the front and a standard filter at the back?
If so, that could explain it. The by-pass filter has different internals and tends to retain more oil than the rear filter which is a more 'normal' type and probably allows the oil to flow back out more readily.

Hi Demack
My brother has a 1991 td42d as do I as I said in previous reply I as well as my Brother use Z9s. both Patrols have done well over 200.000ks without any probs using the cheaper filters, as my brother impressed on me the most important thing is to do your oil changes at very regular intervials about every 5/6000ks and you shouldnt have any probs, the saving on the filters nearly pays for 1/2 the cost of the oil.

DMack,

Incredibly observant of you, have you emptied them into a measuring container or is it quite obviouse when removed? I used to allways spill way to much to have any reliable guage of how much oil is in wich filter!

A mate of mine usualy does his oil and filter changes at my place [Ihave toyota so no dual filters] , his is a 92 model ,,cant say that ever paid any attention to quantity of oil in either filters but come to think of it would not the 1st filter be getting the larger paticles and therfore clogging 1st so less "room " for oil ??
