What happens if you do a oil change and forget to change the filter. This for a car

Report as

It will not effect anything now, but long term it will, i sugest drailing the new oil in your car into a bowl, or jug to save, then replacing the oil filter and putting the oil back in, you may need to buy an extra bottle of oil though, depending on the amount of oil that got sucked into the oil filter.

Why don't you just change the filter right now instead of waiting for the next one.

Dirt will diminish a filters ability to do what it is designed to do. Clean oil will now run through a dirty filter, at least until the oil filter can no longer 'filter' because it has become conjested . .. the filter still should be changed regardless.

If it was changed with the previous oil change its perfectly fine to leave it till next oil change. Change it now, change it next time, up to you.
