I got this product at one of your stores and loved it! It has very many great qualities about it. One of the thing that stood out to be about the product was its great durablitiy. Another thing that was nice was the grip on the end. It was also extremely helpful that I could change the filter without using a wrench. Another thing that really stood out about the product was the use cellulose and synthetic glass blended media to protection my car's engine. Though the best part of all about the oil filter was the price! LOVED IT!

I do not trust Fram oil filters because of the quality of how the filter element is put together if you were to cut it open it has paper end caps and sometimes the filter media itself is not connected properly at the metal lip. To see for yourself by any cheap or expenzive oil filter and a fram open them up and compare. even the cheap ones have metal end caps.
I was an automobile mechanic before joining the Marine Corps and am presently a jet and helcopter mechanic. If that adds to the belivablity.
Or just go to youtube and type in fram oil filters.

          Comments about Fram Extra Guard Oil Filter:

          The black gripping surface on the bottom of the filter makes it easy to install without using any tools. Just lubricate the rubber with some oil, screw it on to contact and them hand tighten it the extra partial turn that the instructions tell you. Refill you oil, run engine and check for leaks. Stop the engine and check the oil dipstick. One of the easiest car maintenance tasks you can do! Well it might be easier to check other fluid levels and the air filter, but you should do all of those when you change the oil and filter anyhow. I like to take some paper towels and wipe up the areas down there around the filter. If I see an rusting metal item, such as linkages, I might wipe them down with some of the old oil or any spills of the new oil. Over the years, this loving care of your vehicle can reward you in increased life of the vehicle. It is a close call sometimes to let someone else do this job, because they can do it for nearly what it costs you to do it yourself. But they usually won't clean things or oil them like you can.

              Fram is a name thats been around for years. If they are good enough for 300 mph dragsters they're good enough for my vehicles.

                Comments about Fram Extra Guard Oil Filter:

                This has to be one of the best filters to use if u change your own oil like i do. I drive a 2002 Chevy Blazer and getting to the oil filter is a pain. Chevy did not leave much room to get almost any kind of oil filter tool in the spot where they decided to stick the oil filter. So as for me i use the fram filter like this because of the grip they put on the bottom of the oil filter. I also use the 4X4 oil filter even though i dont drive a 4X4 blazer because its longer too. So the grip on the bottom makes it easier to grab and turn in the tight spot i have to get to for my oil filter. Iv never had a problem with this type oil filter and ill never change unless they stop making them.
