      The main difference of the filters is that they use a better filter media and seals for a longer service life. Newer cars have longer service intervals and therefore the filters had to be updated....

      A loose support bracket at the back of the pump certainly would put more strain on something not designed for that strain. I think you will find that the problem is resolved. You should at least...

      Can you reuse a headgasket after it has been compressed/run? Sure. Should you? NO! Better to do it right than to do it later.

      Drill the head off the bolt. Use a larger bit than the bolt size. Once the head is off, the threaded portion will just unscrew by hand.
