Good filter link.

Man, I didn't know just how bad the FRAM filters were.

Seems no one likes them, and I always thought - "What is the difference?"

Now I know.

Too bad they didn't have a K&N filter.

Any thoughts on K&N?

According to the packaging the Mobil1 is supposed to be a fantastic filter for running over 3K mile oil changes. I've used them exclusively on my truck with mobil1 oil. it'* clean at 100K and the oil wasn't changed every 3K ever.

On the K&N...I'd need to look at their air filters for an idea of their quality. It would seem like they would make a good one, but w/o cutting open to compare...who really knows.

I've printed the article and will show this to my Valvoline Son and his Idiot Boss who said the AC Delco and Fram were made by the same company, Champion, therefore they are exactly the same. HA! Some people! My guess is that he makes more money on the Fram filters that he sells through the shop...therefore he thinks I am not going to question his authority.

Little does he know, I've got a virtual mechanic at my fingertips with hundreds of years of expertise when you combine everyone'* years of experience...it'* you ...my BC Boys.

I checked w/my Valvoline Son...I use Mobil 1 oil and Filter in the 00. No major change in oil pressure regardless of how I'm driving. I stomped on it just to see if it made a difference. It didn't. It didn't to the officer either. <just kidding>

I use a fram filter as well but now that I see that everyone doesn't agree with fram usage I am going to change to see if it makes a difference in my oil pressure. I have huge oil pressure variation. After getting up to temp, my oil drops to 5psi at idle and up to about 40-50 on the highway. I have measured the pressure with a mechanical gage but not after driving around for a while and the pressure varied quite a bit and dropped to about 10 at the minimum. I then replaced the pressure sender and I still have the same problem.

Is there another sensor to replace or what? Do I need a new oil pump or will changing the filter fix the problem? Thanks

Get an AC Delco PF47

And see what happens... If the pressure doesn't change at all I won't know what to tell you..

I believe that both Autozone and Advance, Parts america, Dicount all sell that filter...
