Hi all,

Can someone confirm the part number of the RYCO oil filters for a 2003 model GU III 4.2TDI?? The Ryco book only lists one for all models but i know that my earlier GU had two different filters and they were not interchangeable and the later models such as the vehicle i have now has two of the same filter..

Many Thanks, Michael

Hi
I have the same vehicle and mine has 2 Z503 ryco filters .The other models used 1 Z503 and 1 Z416.
Hope this helps.If you find a way of changing the filters without spilling oil over the starter motor and front diff let me know.
Cheers Stuart.

Stuart, thanks, mine must be the 503 as i know both filters are the same by the Nissan bills.. I have never done anything to this Patrol since new, it has been lavishly serviced by Nissan till now at some enormous cost,, I will look at the spillage problem,, thanks for the warning.. regards Michael

Hi Michael & Stuart

I take my Nissan TD4.2 for a 45 minute drive late one afternoon,come home
and drain oil straight away,(wear rubber gloves) I leave the drain plug out all night,
The next morning I change the filters,sometimes a small loss of oil,sometimes
none.

All the best.

Phillip.

I have the same model cab chassis and have been using a Ryco Z38 for 200,000km. it has the same thread, same micron filter efficiency and is slightly longer in the body aprox. 20mm, no problem fitting it in, it also has anti-drain back valve, relief valve and and a stack tube to stop the filter from empting out when the filter is removed, saves a lot of mess, also because of these attributes it also retains the oil when the engine is switched off, this means the oil light goes out very quickly on cold starts.

These filters are used on Perkins Marine engines as well.

Hope this helps
