I heard somewhere the NAPA Gold filters are made by WIX....
Bet you see some VTEC problems from them too.
Not so much VTEC concerns as wiped cams from grit. We still have a lot of VTEC concerns due to lack of oil changing and low oil from people not checking their oil levels in those 7,000 mile between oil changes.
And as far as buying oil filters for my wing, I use the same oil filter we use on all Honda cars except the S2000 which uses a larger filter. The car/suv filter is different only in depth/heighth so add an extra .1 oil to crankcase. And it has the same filteration as the MC filter.
clean motor, toss talcum powder on motor, mow till ya want another beer. look at powder, x marks the spot.on my Husqvarna lawn tractor, you damn well better have a habit of checking the oil level.
the engine has a leak somewhere around the Oil filter area, I have washed it off with the high pressure washer several times trying to locate the leak.
new oil filters don't fix it, has to be a gasket leaking somewhere.
