    I am a self studied and experienced home garage mechanic that performs all routine mainteance, and
    most repair work on my vehicles. I service my SUV
    and corvettes as needed. My skills include building complete motors from a bare block for
    high performance street applications and organized racing. Fram filters of all types have
    always been dependable and of high performance.
    In our tight economy, in order to save a "buck",
    ordering supplies from an online supplier such as Advance Auto Parts that has excellent prices is highly recommended by me.

    Horrible, horrible, horrible. poor quality and construction. filter is cheap and flimsy compared to others on market. has far fewer pleats in the filter (means more junk in your engine). I used these and regret it once i found out how poor these were. puraloator is much better, k&n is great along with bosc and mopar. only "good" thing about this is the grip, thats it!

    Don't waste your money and sacrifice you engine

          Comments about Fram Extra Guard Oil Filter:

          I have been using Fram ExtraGuard oil filters for a long time, and they have performed well. I hold on to my cars for a lot of miles, and these filters have done the job well:
          '72 Buick - 205K miles
          '95 Jeeep - 303K miles
          '70 Olds - 362K miles
          I occasionally use other filters, but 98% of the time I use Fram.

              I was the southeast regional mngr for a different major filter manufacter for several years.
              Fram has always been top quality with both research/developement and production.
              Many filters brands are all made by the same company that each boast superiority but just a different label.
              In my experince Fram is always consistant in quality and up to date technology, this is what I buy for my vehicles

                  Comments about Fram Extra Guard Oil Filter:

                  Take the time and do a little research on oil filters, there are plenty of reviews on youtube where they are cut open to expose the lack of quality inside. I find it hard to support a company that cares so little about quality and your engine life. In many cases the cheapest quality are the most expensive. If you are changing your own oil you obviously care about making sure your vehicle gets the best possible treatment, why put in one of industries poorly designed filter.

                    I have always liked these filters just because of the black grit on the surface, making it easy to put on and take off by hand. The anti-slip surface is great.
