    New Member Introductions

  8. Oil filter gasket question.

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    The salesman at the dealership mentioned an additional gasket is used with the Soul's Oil Filter. Anyone have info on this? I like to change my own oil because I've seen to many drain plugs stripped by over zealous quick change oil places and dealerships. Any info appreciated. My first oil...
