Wow, I can't believe you use Frams on those cars. Those are literally the worst filters on the market.

They're not mine, so I can't choose they're my parents cars. I believe that the srt has k&n right NOW but I could be wrong

Ditto. Junk Chinese manufacturing and the media is made and assembled in El Mehico.

I use WIX or AMSOIL.

Motorcraft filters are made by Purolater who is owned by Bosch. It's all the same, just rebadged.

I use Motorcraft, Wix, K&N, and Mobil each one successing the other in case one is not available. Fram is crap along with extra guard (Jiffy Lube uses).

Napa gold is a wix filter.. I feel like someone said Amsoil filters are the best because they use synthetic media..

Was that you RDY?

I had a fram separate itself while putting it on once. This was on an old beater I started out driving in. When I got my first mustang I have been motorcraft ever since. I am sure it a placebo effect, but in my mind my modular cars run better with motorcraft oil.

The synthetic media is better for extend drain intervals. They'll last the 10k+ miles that the oil will last. If you're just using standard OCI (under 5k), then a WIX, Motorcraft, or any paper media filter will work fine. WIX makes AMSOIL's filters using WIX casings and AMSOIL's media.

I'm sure its a placebo effect but I also run motorcraft oil and filters but since there were no motorcraft this one last time I got fram and had this happen

I just use a K&N and synthetic oil in my car. Then again, I hate doing oil changes, so yeah.

I usually buy 2 motorcraft filters every oil change just in case they run out for next one lol.. I use fram on my toyota pickup and never had any issues on the 100k+ miles I've owned it (currently has like 280k miles)

K&N isn't much better.

I've used fram plenty of times, no issue. Typically I use purolator now though becuase I usually find myself at advance auto instead of autozone just becuase its closer. I would still use fram though. Never seen the metal break apart on them, and any paper filter will work just the same as the fram will (like k&n and so on)

Wow I'm surprised to see people running fram. I would never! I used motorcraft or purolator only on all my cars.

Motorcraft filter and Valvoline Dino oil FTW. Nothing replaces regular oil changes.

for these cars yes.

I had a fram on my 97. It had the symptoms of knock on startup. Guess what, it was the fram without an anti-drain back valve. I'd also get chunks of stuff here and there when changing oil. (may be irrelevant truck had 160k and bad maintenance) When i changed to a motorcraft (fl820s) the knock went away, and the crud didn't come out of the pan as often. Id still get some, just not a frequently.
Dad had fram on his 3v 5.4. He heard mine knock on startup and went why is it doing that. I researched and found they were shit. and told him to change next filter change. He didn't believe me until he got a knock on startup. with his 3v.

Both trucks run a fram PH2, or Motorcraft FL820s.

K&N filters are just. Lets not go there...

Sounds like you're overtightening them.


Mobil 1 filter on all my newer stuff.

Motorcraft on the weird pushrod motors.

Overtightening? I tighten them with my hand all the way and then 1/8 turn more with filter wrench. Not over tight at all
