I have used about every brand on the market,and you will not find better bang for your buck than the value of Purolator filters. Perfect fit,every time.I've never had a problem,and my oil stays cleaner longer,and NO drop in oil pressure.I don't know what kind of junk other people who complain about these filters are driving.They obviously have other problems.I would use Purolator on a $100,000 car.

              These Purolator are good filters, I have cut open and looked inside for myself and what I have seen I really like, and those orange filters,... well they are made cheap and it shows. I would never use one on any of my cars...

                Comments about Purolator Classic Oil Filters:

                This oil filter works great. I'm not really sure what all engines this thing fits but I'm pretty sure it fits a lot of General Motors with the 3.8L engines in them. This is not Purolator's best oil filter but I've been running this one for a long time and never had an issues with it and it seems like it does the job. The car has 216,000 miles on it and it is still running like it has been well maintained.

                There is a cheaper Driveworks filter that you can get but in my opinion I would spend a little more and get something that you can trust because you don't know what build quality goes into that other filter. Great price for this filter too!

                          A:

                          Hi Hotrod, glad to serve you! Instructions to clean the oil filter: Use a floor jack and jack stands to raise your car so that you have access to the undercarriage and the reusable oil filter. Place an oil drain pan beneath the reusable filter in case a little trapped oil leaks. Unscrew the bolt holding the reusable oil filter in place by turning it counterclockwise. Use a multi-purpose wrench without threads to start if the bolt is too tight to loosen by hand. Gently lower the reusable filter and open the access area. Slide out the wire cloth filter. Place the wire cloth filter in your automobile parts washer and choose a lower setting to wash it. Alternately, if you do not have a parts washer, you can rinse the filter with fresh brake cleaner. Allow the clean wire cloth filter to air dry completely. Reinsert the wire cloth filter into the reusable oil filter case and close the access area securely. Set the entire filter assembly into place and tighten the bolt back into place by turning it clockwise by hand. Use the non-threaded wrench to make one final half-turn by hand. Lower your vehicle and dispose properly of any oil drippings in the drain pan.
