OK, here I sit with my oil drained and filter off. I realize the dealer gave me a filter for the VG33E engine. Thread size and over all diameter and gasket are the same as what I took off my '08 but it's a little shorter. Can I use this or do I need to get another filter. It's Sunday and I don't have another vehicle to go to a parts store.

Thanks!

Yea, that's my gut feeling. Mr know it all parts man at the dealer walks back and grabs one 'cause he's worked there for 100 freakin' years and he don't need to look up part numbers!

Funny thing sitting here waiting for a ride and looking up oil filters online. All the part numbers that come up for my '02 X are coming up for the '08. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.......

Mobil 1, Fram (Would never use), K&N...same part numbers....

Alright, managed to get a Mobil 1 filter. Was exactly the same size as the one I took off. All is good in my world again. :)
