that's what I saw he was both the same mobil 1 and k&n


no ...I have seen plastic, inside filters, when I have looked in them, and to me that is a definate no no. Plastic becomes brittle when it is repeatidly subjected to extreme heat, and cooled... The catastrophic failure that could come from, a peice of plastic, that has broken away from the structure, as a result of it becomeing brittle, and then getting lodged in an engine oil passage would be horrible

I use almost every time a fram oil filter
, but I saw it had better.......

Purolator, inventor of the oil filter,

Bosch, while a once great company ( German) is one that sucumbed to there competition, and is now a TwilightZOne type quality, or lack of quality product. But the owner is riding the wave, however it is shwrinking, of a name. Years ago Bosch could only be bought at foreign exclusive stores, Audi, BMW, Volkswagon,prosche ect


My preference for my Ford van is Motorcraft 820s, due to the bypass valve design. It is different from other Purolator-made filters, despite being made by Purolator

next filter is amsoil
exactly the same ???.

$14 for a oil filter seems a bit steep.

you can get a MUCH better oil filter for the same price... I am hunting for it, have yet to find it.

The K&N/M1 filters are higher quality than the cheaper filters. Thicker metal, typically better filter media materials, and more dirt trapping capacitance makes it worth the extra money.

Quality TYPICALLY comes at a cost.

Well on a 26 yr old 2.8, the motorcraft should be just fine for my truck :icon_thumby:

And thanks for posting the videos, its interesting to see whats inside the filter and how they are put together.

Where do you get your "facts"?

Mobil and K&N filters, along with STP, are made by CHAMP LABS. See: http://www.champlabs.com/

Wix is owned by Affinia... See: http://www.affiniagroup.com/wps/portal/affiniagroup/products/

Bosch, here in North america... Purolator. http://directory.fleetmag.com/product/10129428/Robert_Bosch_Corporation_Purolator_Filters

And one more correction... The MOTORCRAFT filters are based on the OLD PUROLATOR design... to FORD'S specs.
Who makes Baldwin oil filters and how do they compare in quality to these?

How well do Baldwin oil filters work on Rangers and do they have good oil flow characterisics?

can't answer the Baldwin filter question, can't find any around in my area. Baldwin and Hastings are Clacor companies.

Baldin/Hastings have a great reputation of quality filters.



if it means anything... amsoil used to have them make their filters. Baldwin filters are relatively low priced... Amsoil was asking a LOT for essentially the same filters, which is typical of Amsoil.

you impress
acdelco duraguard...they WERE made by Champ Labs

http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oilfilters/reference.html
http://www.rovertrax.com/technical/oilfilers.html#delco


say no to: Fram Xtended Guard XG8A : with are plastic. never buy this filter, plastic and heat do not go together

AC Delco Duraguard is STILL made by champ labs. they aren't the old design, they use the ECORE design now... with the exception of a few, ie Duramax applications.



And if you actually read the article right... you'd see that AC Delco made their own filters BEFORE Champ labs. That's right... the filter you showed is NOT a champ labs filter according to the article. Now please leave MY product review thread alone.

I read that you have to be careful NOT to buy a filter that filters TOO well....

the filtration material can become clogged too soon causing the by=pass valev to open too soon....then you're driving around with a "quality" filter that clogs up way too soon because it is doing a really good job of catching all the trash & the oil pump is sending unfiltered oil to the engine for hundreds of miles..... :icon_surprised:


I forget who did the "clog test"---but it would be worth adding it into the equation......



go figure...... :icon_confused:

so are you saying you'd rather have a filter that doesn't catch that crap and still allows for it to be recirculated in your engine? :dunno:

Filters that have more media, typically have more capacity for dirt.

A couple more things to consider: some oil change monitoring systems in vehicles operate off of oil pressure. if they sense the filter goes into bypass, it triggers the oil change light or "oil change required" shows up on the display.

Basically, your argument is moot. you can either have a terrible filter that doesn't filter efficiently, or have a good one that does. In the end, it'll go into bypass later than a lower quality filter... unless your maintenance habits are terrible.

Back to the filters!
