Removing the engine oil for a few days - any concerns?
I own a Classic Car. I want to buy an Oil Filter and the Dealer is asking me for a Sample.
He says he will take it from me and look for it when he has the time.
Should I remove the Oil Filter and give it to him as it is a running car ?
P.S. I am asking because to take out the Oil Filter, I will have to remove the Engine Oil and the Engine may remain without Engine Oil for a few days.
Will it create any problem ?
Please help me as soon as possible. I need to remove the Oil Filter in around an hour or so if I have to remove it.

I don't see any problem in storing engine oil in a sealed can for few days if you can manage without car, indeed it will get you exact part you are looking for. Just don't crank the engine anyhow
However, let gurus pour in their advice as well.

Just dont start the engine, ensure the shop guy keeps your filter safe also and no tampering. Otherwise you will have a stranded car without filter, if he fails to procure the filter.

Keeping the engine without oil has no problems associated with it, as long as someone doesn't try to crank start the engine. Maybe you should disconnect the battery too, if you have an overenthusiastic chauffeur who might unknowingly try to start the car.
