Manish
Davis
California
Manish changes his oil regularly. Last time, he took out the filter and no oil came out--the filter looked brand new. Tom and Ray say this is very unusual, but may not be a big deal. It could be that the oil pressure relief valve is malfunctioning and letting oil get to the engine but not the filter. Manish may need to try cranking the engine after he removes the filter. He can also take it to a shop, where they can drop the pan.
