replacing O rings in the oil filter neck

Well it is going to get into the 40's and 50's over the weekend and it is time to replace the O rings in the oil filter neck. This is on a '90 4.0L.

How do I replace them any thing special they leave out of the FSM?
It there anything I should watch out for?
Anything else I should do when I am changing the oil and the O rings?

Thanks in adavance

bolt can sieze...needs a breaker bar of sorts. you prolly don't need the torx bolt, so that's good. lube the new o-rings with fresh oil before putting everything back together. torque the bolt down good, and apply anti-sieze first.

Re: replacing O rings in the oil filter neck

It's a pretty straightforward fix.... the only thing I've heard causing problems is the Torx. (some years use regular hex head, some use Torx)

Clean the bejeesus out of the elbow before replacing and lube the rings

Might as well do an oil change while you're at it.

My 90 has the standard hex head bolt in the center, not the Torx so ya should get lucky there. Nothin' to it. Just do your regular oil change while yer at it, count on some oil runnin' down below when ya pull it off. New o-rings will be a bit snug just lube em up w/ a little grease & don't crimp/tear em.

No sweat! Even I can do it!
