Hi all, just changed the oil and filter on the mondeo and when putting the new one on I realised that it isn't quite the same size as the original one I took off, the top is where it connects but it is phyically slightly smaller. I got the filter et all from a ford dealer who used my reg to get the right parts, there is no oil leaking anywhere from sump or filter and the car is running fine but I am concerned its not the right one and it may cause some damage - do ford use a universal oil filter to fit a few engines? Am I the only one that has noticed this?

Have something to contribute?
