Well maybe I should check mine then... I have a fram on and lately every time I drive home from college, a 2 hour drive, when I get back I'm about a quart low... So that will be the first thing I check. Next is the valve cover gaskets.

Do not buy Fram. Stop buying Fram. I don't know why people continue to buy this for our cars (and other Ford modular motors). They simply have no idea how to build a proper anti drainback valve and flat out blow.

Ok I'll keep that in mind. My dad also get them for his f150 with the 4.6 mod motor. I've never had a problem with them but maybe I am now since I'm losing so much oil. Have to check it out soon then.

I like to tell/recommend to people, put on what came on the car when it rolled out of the factory.

Just makes sense to me to use what the manufacturers used to begin with.

no reason to use a wrench to tighten.

Ive always used FRAM and never had an issue except a pinhole on one. But I think that was from a rock since there was a nice dent in it that wasnt there when I installed it.

Whenever I do mine it depends on the car if I use a wrench. Mustang I hand tighten and then use a wrench to give it just a little turn to make sure. With my volvo you have to use a tool to get it on and off.

Motorcraft or WIX for me. I used to put FRAM filters on my jeep cherokee until one day I changed the oil and put a new fram filter on it. Fired it up and the oil pressure gauge was pegged..Thinking maybe it was a coincidence the sender failed I bought a new one and installed it..didn't fix it. Went and got a WIX filter, slapped it on, oil pressure went back to normal.
