Re: Oil Filter Reviews

This subject, like the darsiding subject will continue on forever--- The trouble with all the shown filter reviews is that not a one has ever tested the filter for actual function. There have been no known or advertised failures of any brand of filter. Lots of anecdotes about opinionated mechanics etc---
I don't think that any one of the filter manufacturers could stand to have a liability lawsuit because of an inferior product that caused engine damage.
I've used Fram Filters for more than 50 years without any problem and probably will continue to do so. Of those 50 years, I worked 35 in the automotive business. No, I never sold Fram filters--- I was in the service equipment business working for a manufacturer.

Remember, no one is totally usless. They can always be used as a bad example!

Re: Oil Filter Reviews

I never had a filter fail on me either. I used Frams for years, then I saw a cutaway display at my local Carquest. Carquest/Wix filters had ALOT more surface area (pleats). Not trying to start an arguement here, use what you like, I'm using Wix.

Re: Oil Filter Reviews

I just buy a quality filter...I can change it faster than I can read this thread. I have never had an oil filter fail or cause a problem.

Re: Oil Filter Reviews

Quality brand name filters will all work just fine. Also being in all types of vehicle repairs in my life time I have seen oil filters fail. Were the cheaper line of Napa Silverline. Didn't cause any engine damage just blew out the oil on our police crown vics
Never had any engine damage done no matter what brand oil filters or oil. Damage I saw was dirt going through the air filter.
