    Are you still trying to find a filter that fits?

    If the factory oil filter for your Liteace is the 90915-30001 as listed then your engine has the large and quite rare 24mm x 1.5 oil filter thread. I am surprised the Baldwin was too big...not that I have looked at a million filters but I have never seen a car filter with larger than 24mm.

    Have you verified what the thread size/pitch is on your engine? If a 24mm filter is not fitting maybe the union on your engine was changed by someone to one with a different thread size like a more common 3/4 x 16?

    thats what im thinking. but the fram filter # crosses over to the baldwin correctly. should work! blah such a pita!


    thats a pic of the fitting. takes a 24mm wrench i hear.

    You could always buy one of those oil filter relocation kits and put the filter somewhere you want it to be and use whatever filter you desire...

    We had great success with wix

    I'd look into Ironravens thought, if you could find something close you could have a new piece machined (if memory serves it would be the connector that couples the spigot that would need machined). Heck with a jug of rum you might convince a decent machinist to make you the sandwich even.... mmmm sandwich.... :sly:

    It might not be real cheap.... but it would be real permanent and a good platform to be able to use other filters if you had need to... for my truck I've decided to find/make a new intake filter arrangement. Not quite the same as your oil filter issues but bothersome to HAVE to buy a filter that had to be specially imported. With that giant mini of yours I'd bet you could find all sorts of easy access places to hide a filter adapter :D


    sidenote add on.... the wix supplier bought all of our existing fram filters of any and all variety on the base (lots and lots and lots of them) to make the transition fast and effortless, heck it even seemed to feel like it was cost effective.... odd for a federal deal to be cost effective LOL

    im gonna see how the wix does first. if its no change, then im gonna see what i can do for a relocate. Ive heard horror stories about loss of pressure and more leaking.

    Makes me glad my Liteace just uses the same filter as the Toyota Corolla/Matrix.

    I haven't heard you mention it in your trials...but have tried the actual Toyota 90915-30001 already?

    From your picture...what is that bolt I have circled in red? From the picture it looks like it is screwed into the oil filter mount housing (or is that just an optical illusion). Maybe it is loose and that is a leak source?

    Well, looks like I need to pay more attention to this thread. Engine related anyway.

    I think I just bought a 91 Sprinter Saloon, 2C diesel, manual trans 4wd!, 39km.

    Heh. Little 4WD diesel Corolla. Highway commuter. Lol

    And its nice ToyoDIY got their pics back. They had them a long time ago, then some legal BS made them take down the images. Now they are back. That is nice.

    Edit >> Just looked up my Sprinter, and no photos :(

    Psilosin - oil pressure sending unit. I do not believe that is the culprit. Of course its been like -40 here now so ive been using the minivan because it has command start lol.

    No, havent gotten an official oil filter yet. the toyota dealer in regina has some rather RUDE and annoying people working there... Maybe next time im in Regina I will try or go to MooseJaw.

    Jeremy - dont let this give you a bad feeling about the 2C i think its just simply Fram + cold = fail lol

    so had fun getting home from regina. we stayed an extra night to avoid the highways being it got too close to sun down. good thing to! there was reports of cars in the ditches and we saw the marks from it! also saw a car completely on its side in the ditch! looked like it was out of the movies!

    anyhow the best section of the road.

    Stopped in Weyburn for some coffee and took some pictures.

    Note my passenger mirror is wrapped around and facing back. Splashes of ice and slush from the semi's did that!

    Haha, amazing amazing amazing photos! Love the truck nuts, transformer sticker and sweet ice hub craps. Looks like they really lay down the salt in Sask!!!

    they did because of the bad storm that rolled through. most highways were closed by the RCMP. that rarely happens here! got her to a car wash and got the layer of salt off of her i hope. gonna hit the wash again next warm day.

    well because of the ice buildup and so forth i put it in my fathers garage over night. im not sure what was going on but it didnt seem to have very good steering.. might be a low tire to.

    Monday im going to get the tires checked (gotta love kal tire and free repairs) and going to inquire about a tortion lift. would be nice to get a free inch or two lift!

    So I left it in the shop overnight, but it wasnt enough. sure lots of ice fell off the truck and it made a mess under it but there was still a ton of ice and muck under the truck. had to take it to a car wash and get under the front and clean out all the ice from under the front and the steering stuff. Went from a lugged down hard to steer truck to something light and very responsive!
