I never had an issue with fram, but I use a Motorcraft filter on my Mustang. I think they are $3.49 at walmart, but every autoparts store has them for a extra dollar or so.

oreilly has them for 3.99 they price match me for 3.49 and the oil to 15.59
But for OEM parts I go next door from oreilly and head into vatozone

last time i used fram was on my 92 fox and i either overtightened it or it sealed so well that when i tried to take it off, it didn't budge. nothing got it off. the stupid grip on the end came off, i ended up sticking a flat head screw driver through the filter and turned it to get it off.

after that experience, i only go w/ motorcraft oil and oil filters.

This is so weird, my sister just told me Ford sent her a free oil change on her 2014 Explorer but she changed her oil over the weekend. I asked her what filter she used, Fram.



The thing that made me even more mad was she knew that it was shit. My dad told her it was shit and we have never used Fram, but she bought it and put it on and is now asking me if she should take it to Ford for the free oil change..

+1

My dad taught me once it touches the block, go 3/4-1 turn more.

I've never had one leak (that wasn't faulty, I did have a bad filter on my Ranger once) and I've never had an issue taking one off with one hand that I put on.

And don't forget to lube your o-ring before you screw.

Never had an (manufacturer) issue with FRAM filters and thats all Ive ever used.

Had one bust a little hole in it and start leaking but there was a big ass dent in it so Im guessing someone or something hit it so I cant really blame them.

They just need to be hand tight. No need to snug them even an 1/8th of a turn with a filter wrench

My dad always buys fram for some reason, neither one of us have ever had an issue with one. And we've probably gone through hundreds of them

I doubt that it failed for 1/8th of a turn though, highly unlikely. But hell what do I know im just 19. I have heard hand tight is just right too. Lol

Don't put a wrench on them to install em Cris. Hand tight like the others are saying. And make sure you lube your o-ring with a smear of oil if you haven't been. If you don't do that they will stick bad. Real bad.

Yeah my dad burned the " smear oil on the o-ring" on me and my friend one day when we were 12. Let me just say he didnt stop yelling for 3 hours.

This times a thousand. I've seen a dissection video of different filters and Motorcraft ended up being one of the higher quality filters.

The last vehicle I remember ever using a fram filter on was my dads old 2.4L 1986 Nissan pickup. Every ford I've owned I've used motorcraft oil and filters.
