Motorcraft Original Equipment Oil Filter

Part No. FL-820S Warranty Details  

See if this part fits a specific vehicle.

Check Vehicle Fit

The Motorcraft Original Equipment Oil Filter is designed, engineered and recommended by Ford Motor Company. This filter helps protect against engine wear by screening out abrasives, such as carbon, sand, dust and bits of metal before they can get into your oil.

Product Features:
  • Pressure-relief valves help minimize the chance of contaminated oil circulating back into the engine
  • Pressure-relief valves also help maintain the supply of oil to the engine under extreme cold conditions or if the filter gets clogged
  • Steel cases are “ironed” for a precise fit, fluted to ease removal and painted to resist rust
  • Efficient filter media offers increased dirt-collecting capability and ability to capture more engine-harming particles

        Perfect fit and quality at a fraction of what Land Rover wants for an OEM filter. This is a direct replacement for any Land Rover LR3 with the Ford 4.0 V6 engine. Happy tooling.

                These filters are a great buy at this price point. A little online research will provide ample evidence that these are high quality filters and really seem to perform better than other options on Ford/Lincoln/Mercury and even some Mazda vehicles. I've used them for years and will continue to do so. An added bonus is versitility as this filter works with many Ford engine types/sizes. Excellent value at under $4.

                  I have tried Purolator due to the inexpensiveness of the filter but as the old saying goes, "you get what you pay for." The rubber gasket came right off when I put it on my relatives car. Never again! Why go with anything else other than OEM?

                            Hi Bill, great question! You would need a 93mm oil filter end cap wrench which has 36 flutes for accessing this oil filter. Right now I am unable to locate an exact wrench for this oil filter online. However, if you could please visit your nearest Advance Auto Parts store one of our Parts Pros will gladly assist you.
