Oil Filter Choices

I always use the MC #1995 oil filter in my 2002 F350 7.3 each oil change. In case I was unable to get this filter at WM or any other parts stores (not dealer) in my area, what other oil filter brands would be a safe bet in the $10-$15 range?:shrug:

I personally use Fleetgaurd oil and fuel filters only on my truck. I get the oil for $9.30 and the fuel for right around $12.00. They can not be had except from a dealer is the only downside. Since MC is a factory part for you all, that is all good. I use Fleetguard because they are some of the best out there and what Cummins recommends.

Never use a fram, they are the cheapest of the cheap filters. Wish I could find the web page showing cut apart oil filters as you would never think about fram again.

K&N makes some good oil filters & the nut on the bottom of the filter is nice when it comes to changing them:smoke: :smoke: :smoke:

I agree. Fram is crap! I use motorcraft or I was useing an Amsoil bypass for awile too. Just haven't put it back on since I built the engine. From what I hear Fleetguard makes very good filters too.

I use the donaldson filters w/ the nanotechnology. Their air filters are superb and their oil filters are like wise on the cutting edge.

Here is a little bit of info on them http://www.amsoil.com/StoreFront/eabp.aspx


But would recommend buying them from Bob Riley because he sells his products at wholesale. Here at: dieselsite

Thanks to Bob selling wolesale I saved my annual membership and dropped it.....:Thumbup:

I know its not for everyone so this is just a FYI to share that there are other alternatives.....

Not sure about who makes the Carquest. I do know the NAPA filters are made by Wix, which is owned by DANA.
