Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

^ they lied to you. Highly doubt they pulled a transmission(several hour job) just to check your "clutch pads" (proper name is clutch disc)

that said your clutch is probably fine if driven normally but it's not something you can just take a look at real quick and check...

It was a factory mistake, nothing to do with the car. They weren't doing a trans clean up, they just needed to replace part of the clutch. They showed me the pads and I can verify they had little to no wear.

Let me rephrase that, it wasn't a fault of the car being unreliable. It's not like a head gasket blowing or a steering column failing due to poor reliability, it was a design oversight.

also in general more filter material to hold all the junk.

It's amazing how much dirtier DI is. The oil is still a goldish color on my miata after 6000 miles but the qx80 at that point is jet black

Doesn't help that regular nissan filters are the size of lawnmower oil filters.

Only the RS if it has the head gasket fixed (in theory they should all be serviced by now, but unless people are lazy and didnt do it...) and you find it at a reasonable price

Generally motorcycle oil should be changed more often because the oil is shared between the engine and the clutch, and clutches give off a lot of particulates. I generally change the oil in the motorcycles every 1000 miles. 

 

I changed the oil in it twice in a weekend, once! :D

yah i dont think the previous owners have cared much about maintnance seeing as the tires were from 2001 on it, which is when it was imported into Sweden from Germany. Its had 6 owners here and been sitting for the last 7 years. 

 

An oil change per season or so should be enough but il see how much i ride, hopefully enough to need to change it more than that :D Need to actiually check the bottle next time i buy oil though because now they have started to add PET and shit that makes the clutch slip if you pick an oil with it

Larger volume canister means more surface area for the filter medium. While the passages are more restrictive, there's more passages to compensate.

Right, but I’m saying compared to a smaller filter with the same medium.

Oil pressure is regulated. Flow rate would be negligible. 

 

Just stick with OEM filters especially in modern engines.

that said your clutch is probably fine if driven normally but it's not something you can just take a look at real quick and check...

Tons of cars have inspection plates/ports that make it a very simple job to check the clutch assembly.   I know for sure Early Evos, DSMs, most early toyotas.

Removing the starter and using a mirror is also a quick way on some vehicles to quickly check.

Oil pressure is regulated. Flow rate would be negligible. 

 

Just stick with OEM filters especially in modern engines.

Something to watch out for is bypass pressure though, all canister filters bypass above a certain PSI and if that's a lot lower than the original filter then you'll not be filtering the oil as much even though it's a larger media. There should be specs listed online for that, I myself went through this looking for a bigger filter for my Mazda (the other car) and came to the conclusion that I'd rather have a slightly smaller filter with a 12 psi bypass than a filter with an 8 psi bypass, since 8psi is near the minimum spec for the engine and I doubt my oil pressure dips that low that often.
