    I've bought these for years. In my opinion the Purolator PureOne is the best oil filter for the normal daily driver but I just love the grip on the Fram Extra Guard. I have no concerns as to whether the filter is sufficient in getting the dirt because most oil filters are good for 7k-10k miles anyways. Does the job and is easy to change. No filter wrench needed.

    I tried this filter in several vehicles before giving up. All of them tapped and knocked on startup and at low speeds especially. When I changed to a Purolator or Mobil 1 filter the noise went away immediately. My mechanic also has had issues and warns customers to stay away.

      Comments about Fram Extra Guard Oil Filter:

      This is the best filter ever created. I use it on all of my cars it makes the oil change go so much faster, no need for a filter wrench with this filter because it can be taken off with your hand.

          I don't use any other than FRAM tufguards on all my cars. My WRX has been on the track in Beaver run, PA for four 20 minute heats. It has 198k miles on the engine and still going strong!

                Comments about Fram Extra Guard Oil Filter:

                I purchased this Fram Oil filter as part of my routine maintenance for a 2006 Pontiac Montana SV6, although it looks like a small metalic can it actually contains years of scientific research and space-age materials that allow this "magical can" to properly seperate tiny little particles of unwanted material from the life blood of my vehicle, but only for 3 months or around 3,000 miles. The only problem I have seen is that this only comes in one color (orange and black), would like to see more color choices in the future.

                if you have to tighten to keep from leaking, you are screwed. It collapses under anything more than hand pressure.
