Re: Oil Filters
I've read a lot of opinions, personal experiences, as well as unbiased tests of the various filters on the market and as long as you stay away from Fram you're doing good. Frams are notorious for restricting oil flow enough to cause lifter noise and have actually been responsible for destroying an engine when the filter element collapsed. The collapsed element plugs up the main oil galleries causing loss of oil pressure and severe engine damage. Just as a note, the Penzoil filters are actually a Fram.
Fram's anti drainback valve are also famous for leaking.....allowing unfiltered oil to drain back into the oil pan. Not exactly ideal.....
For your Ford, Motorcraft filters are a great filter with a reasonable price. Purolator, Mobil 1, and NAPA/Wix are also excellent filters.
