A filter for a Ford 5.0 (Fram PH8A or equivalent) is larger but bolts right up... extra filtration surface for free!

Ok, you got me......... reeled me in.
Why is the FRAM PH-16 a bad choice????
I've been using it on mine since day 1, now with 77,000 miles on it, it runs great and uses absolutely ZERO oil.

Fram was bought out by Allied Signal years ago and since then, their quality has taken a big nose dive. The couple oil filter tests I've seen have all pretty much said the same thing, that Fram's filters had the worst quality and the most problems with leaky anti-drainback valves.

Thanks Difranco!
I looked all over the Mobil 1 site (I thought) and could not find any info on filters for specific autos.

The best filters are the Pureolator filters especially their premium filter the "PureOne" (about $5.50 here) which is half the cost of the K&N ($12 to $15) or the Mobile 1 ($8 - 11).

When I first bought my TJ in August of '05, I spent the first 3,000 miles researching and reading about oil, filters and greases. I spent more time reading about that then about Jeeps and mods.

So the PureOne and Mobile 1 are what I use at every 6,000. I will be dropping the $40 dollars next month to have my used oil tested by a lab to see if I need to decrease/increase my Oil Change Interval or not.


Sidenote: I did have good results with Castrol Syntec in my old Nissan Frontier Crew Cab, after 90,000 miles it didn't burn any oil at all and I was doing oil changes about every 10,000 miles.

No problem. Their access to that info is not easily found as you have to go thru their oil selection wizard.

Jerry Is wright on the fact Fram like to to cater to the wall mart... k mart croud. the filters are natoriuosly getting failures on there anti drainback system, and sence the TJ,S are horizontal to your block, you need a product that has super good antidrainback capabilities. Purolator wether it be PURE ONE, or reg purolator are good so is ac delco, I use the ford filter made by Bosch my self, in my TJ In my opnion Mobil 1, amsoil are hyped up in there marketing, Change your oil on a common bases and use a good rated filter. Hastings. lee maxi, PURE ONE, acdelco. Ford motercraft use to make excellent filters, purolator, wix, BOSCH, These all in my opioion, are good named filters that you dont have to pay 10.00 a pop for.

crap, I've been using Fram for the past few years. What retailers carry the Pureolator, and is the PL-30001 the same size as the PH8A?

I like the Pure One filter for the 5.0L Mustang, fits nicely and extra large filter.

Has anyone actually seen, first hand, an engine getting destroyed because it used a Fram filter? To be honest, I think it's an old wives tale.

I've used Fram filters (Tough Guard) for many, many years and never had any problems.
My '93 Cherokee had 84,000 miles on it when I sold it last March and she ran like a top. I'm using the same Fram filter on the new (in March) Rubi.
I've also used K & N drop in air filters for years with NO problems, although they get a bad rap too.
