mobil 1 filter

With my 02 Ranger 4l. I change the oil myself, buying the 5 qt. jug of
mobil1 5/30 from wal-mart for around $20 and a motocraft filter from
autozone for $3.50. Anyone use a mobil1 filter - around $10 - and any
opinions?
thanks, Mark S

My Wal-Mart carries Motorcraft filters. Might save you a trip.

Most major brand filter today are pretty good and if you go to Advance
Auto their brand is made by Fram so you are actually getting a Fram
Wear guard filter (which are preety good) when you buy one of theirs.

Are you crazy???
Fram filters are rated the worst by just about everybody.

Re: mobil 1 filter

I used a Mobil 1 filter in my 02 Superduty Triton V10 but I noticed I got a
lot of valvetrain noise when starting cold. Maybe a different drainback
valve design that didn't seal well. Switched to Motorcraft filter and no
problems. Always ran 5w30 Mobil 1.

I notice that Mobil 1 is now available in 5w20, which is what Ford
recommends, I wonder if after using 5w30 for 60K miles, would it be OK to
switch? I am thinking probably not...

Oh please, you don't believe their ads, do you?
Fram is about the worst you can buy.
Just do a search with Google...

Yea, some people cut them open and make judgements based on their
observations of construction and materials. They don't flow test or
measure their filtering efficiency. Don't get me wrong, Fram is as
cheaply made as they can make them, but they still perform well enough
to meet manufacturer's specs.

Re: mobil 1 filter

Why take the risk of major engine damage to save a couple bucks on a
cheapest-ly-made oil filter?

Re: mobil 1 filter

I had the same valve train noise with Fram. Switched to Motocraft and no
noise. If you have heard the noise with Mobil 1 filters, I'll stick with
Motocraft. No more Motocraft filters at the local Wallys.
