PostSubject: Oil Filters   Sun Mar 29, 2015 2:02 am

well boys its that time, 3000 miles later, time for an oil change. i run mobil 1 10-30 in my 98 ram. PO used 5 quarts pennzoil and 1 quart lucas, and was religous on K&N oil filters. i changed it back in the fall and used the last k&n filter they guy gave me. and i used Mobil1 full synthetic. no additives, no BS. now, ive heard great things about these K&N filters, and ive heard terrible things. I simply cannot fathom spending 15 bucks on an oil filter just because it has the K&N name, and a fancy socket lug on the bottom, that rips off, busts my knuckle and dumps the contents of the filter down my arm- usually burning hot oil- and that i now have to remove by jamming a screwdriver through the can.... nope, i cant do it... it was suggested by *cough* someone... *cough* that i use a fram filter. thats totally out of the question. An OCOD (orange can of death) will NEVER be fitted to ANY vehicle of mine. im thinking a NAPA gold filter, they are supposed to be WIX filters, or Purolater, one or the other. both of which are supposed to be pretty good. then theres Mopar OEM filters.

so whats your suggestions?
Wix
Purolator
NAPA gold
Mopar OEM
Other...?

going to get changed this weekend, so sooner the better

As I mentioned on your facebook post get Wix, Napa Gold being the same, or the OEM that makes Mopar filters. Mopar brand, or Motorcraft, or AC Delco filters aren't made by Chrysler, Ford, or GM they are made by an OEM. I googled it and the OEM for Mopar is Purolator. So I'd say Wix or Purolator, whichever you like better.
