Question about 2000 Lincoln Town Car
How to replace
I've never heard of anyone filling a new oil filter with oil before installing and I'm a mechanic and so was my dad. Simply remove your old filter by turning counter clockwise making sure the rubber o ring comes off with it. Clean the surface where the oil filter seats to of any dirty oil or debris including any remains of the old o-ring. Rub a small amount of clean oil on new o-ring (which comes on the new filter) so it will form a good seal with engine and screw on the new filter . Hand tighten then turn 1/4 turn with oil filter wrench. Fill crankcase with proper amount of new oil recommended by the manufacturer usually 4 or 5 quarts for most automobiles and start engine. Run for a few minutes while checking for leaks around filter and oil pan drain plug turn off engine and check dip stick to confirm proper filling. You're done.

Your oil filter comes with a rubberized o-ring. When you take off the old oil filter, make sure you get the old oring with it. If you don't you'll have problems with the new one. Apply a light coat of clean oil to the new filters o-ting before installing. This helps the filter bond to the motor. turn the old filter counter clockwise to remove it. When installing new filter, fill filter with oil prior to installation. Turn clockwise to tighten. Tighten till snug, then give it an extra quarter turn for tightness. Again, make sure you remove the old o-ring from the motor if it does not come out with the old oil filter. No need to take new oring off new oil filter. Just fill, lubricate seal and install.
