    Its not necessary, but its cheap insurance that you dont loose all your oil out the filter cap.

    I don't have to change them every time. they key is not damaging them and on the older doos without the self ejecting oil filter cap that ain't easy..

    When it doubt change em. an oil leak from the filter cap is way messy.
