Oil filter connection

I have a 1999 satun s-series. The bolt that holds the oil filter has been cross threaded. Does anyone know what this part is called. It comes off, but I don’t know what to call it to find a new one.

Do you mean the threaded part you screw the oil filter on to ?
It’s hollow through the middle and threaded on the outer ?

Ford calls it an ‘insert’, some call it a sleeve.

Your description " oil filter connection" will get you the right part if you don’t call it a ‘bolt’.

You can also just walk into a parts store with the damaged one in hand.

As Ken said, all you need to know is enough to pont the part out on the “exploded view” drawing that the parts guys shows you. By the way, this part if it’s a “normal stock” item at the dealers may be available as a “normal stock” item at a parts store too. Go to one that provides parts for the local mechanics’ garages. They carry an entirely different stock than the consumer-oriented places do.

Thanks for your help. I will probably have to do the salvage yard thing. The local parts dealer said it’s not a stock item. Satuns are KIA’s now I guess…thats what they told me.

thanks

Try a different parts retailer.
The person with whom you spoke doesn’t know his…alternator…from his elbow.
