I have used Fram oil filters in my automobile engines for decades. Driving each vehicle well over 100,000 miles. I HAVE NEVER HAD A OIL OR OIL FILTER RELEATED PROBLEM WITH WITH MY ENGINES. DONT BELIEVE THESE NEGATIVE THINGS BEING SAID ABOUT FRAM FILTERS, THEY ARE SIMPLY NOT TRUE. My current vehicle is a 1999 GMC Step Side, in mint condition, with 140,000 miles. Maybe if these people would take better care of their engines (regular oil changes,etc.) they wouldnt be having trouble. but dont blame it on the oil filter.

Many people fall prey to Fram filters and their marketing. But please do not make the mistake of using a Fram Filter.
Fram oil filters use very low quality parts. The gaskets are very basic cardboard end caps that leak very easily. If you use this filter and have a noisy valve train at startup, the filter is likely the cause. The bypass valves are plastic and are sometimes not molded correctly, which allows them to leak when they should be closed. The backplate has smaller and fewer oil inlet holes, which may restrict flow.
Not only are they low quality and cause issues in some cars, but they are also not the cheapest filter. So save some money and get a better filter like Purolator, Wix, or any other oil filter not made by Fram/Honeywell.

    Comments about Fram Extra Guard Oil Filter:

    I like these filters for the price. I tend to run these on the daily drivers which I make sure get oil changes every 3500/3mos. On collector cars that sit I would advise to use the high end filters as they will last longer in time as they are made of much better materials. As an example, I have three F bodys a third, fourth, and fifth Generation, none of which get more than 1500 miles per year. So, If I use a highest end filter I can be confident about leaving full synthetic with that filter for 12 months. The LS3 takes 9 quarts of full Synthetic...

            First time I used this was several years ago. Most recently, there was a deal and I grabbed this. The gritty base makes for easy installation, as well as the "by-hand" tight torque recommended.

            Though I have the precise tool for socket removal, for the first time, I was able to REMOVE the filter by hand as well. This was very welcome and will be a feature I look for in future filters.

                Comments about Fram Extra Guard Oil Filter:

                I usually use a "FRAM" oil filter on all the do-it-yourself oil changes. I especially like the rough grip on the end of the filter which allows me to turn it off by hand. Tip learned from my brother: I screw oil filter on until it touches the base, then I put a chalk mark at 6 o'clock, then tighten filter to just past 12 o'clock. Using this method, I never over-tighten oil filters and allows easy removal next time.
