Oil filter area cracks?

Recommended Posts

Was doing an oil change, and saw this after I pulled out the filter. They're small cracks, or rather scratches. Normal? Bad?

Yes, I put the o-ring back in.

yet again the search function answers all questions. Well, at least mine has a nice picture to look at. Thanks!

what causes that?

It's just a byproduct of the casting process, nothing to worry about..:)

Mine looks the same way also. I don't believe this is cracks. Looks to me like a manufacturing induced visual defect only.
