    Saturn had got that oil filter in 2000 when the ecotec motor came out in the L series. I remember spilling very little oil when changing them.

    I used to give them a wrap of electrical tape to “fix” this problem. Would also use a wrap of electrical tape to hold bolts onto the ends of sockets when needed.
