I'm in the middle of my 1st oil change and I put the rubber seal in the ridge that it was set in when I removed it. But there's another ridge it could have fit in closer to the edge of the threads at the lip of the cap.<p>Sorry no pics, but there is a recessed ridge a few mm's from the lip and then another ridge at the lip. It looks like the one at the lip would crush the seal against the housing. The farther up ridge would create a seal inside the housing and the lip of the cap would then press against the housing.<p>Please advise ASAP so I can finish before dark. Thanks in advance-

Its the one before the filter housing bottoms out onto the oil pan.

Also a good time to remember to be especially alert to what your doing to know where and what your removing.

Re: oil filter cap seal. which ridge is used? (stringwalla)

It also happens to be the space or gap that is wider than any of the others.
