Hello! I'm new to this website and find it very interesting. I am wondering about what oil filter might be the best one for my 2008 Toyota sienna. I now use a M1C-251 filter. I use M1ep 5w-30 for 12,500 miles. I did a UOA on it with Blackstone labs and they said the oil could go 14,000 miles. Would the Fram Ultra be be a better choice because it might be a cheaper price with a larger capacity for gunk. I pay 17.50 per filter now on Amazon.

Edit Reason: price on filter.

Ok since your new we will cut you a break, never ask for the best anything around here. just a tip.

If it were me, I would look into any of the synthetic media filters and silicone anti drain back Valve. Can't go wrong with any of those. Royal purple impresses me, wix XP, Napa Platinum, Purolator Synthetic, and more. Oil choice I would look into group 5 synthetic, or group 4 too. welcome to Bitog.

Honestly I would just stay with OEM. They have been designed for Toyota and meet all of there specs.

Toyota filters are very well made and reasonably priced up in the Great White North. Their TRD filters are made in the USA

Yeah, the Toyota filters are good and the already mentioned Denso First TIme Fit filters are identical. Both can be found online, with eBay a good place to find the OEMs.

You can always run the toyota filter for 5k miles and if you change your own oil and cut it apart. if you go to oil stop or something, just ask for your old filter, i do it all the time. When you cut it apart, if it is all stiff and crystallized, you know there is a better choice- synthetic. if the filter is still fine and dandy at 5k miles, I would agree. However, i have yet to see any OEM filters not stiffen up, but I never cut open a Toyota filter.

This has 2GR-FE engine, right?
Aftermarket filters are 2-3x as expensive as OEM and are actually inferior in filtering area. Total rip off. They are known to collapse from restriction if you search. This engine needs high flow filters. No need to cut open either as this is a cartridge filter.

No the toyota filter is actually worse in filtering, they only filter 51% of 20 microns. This is NOT a problem in my opinion because thats what toyota specs. Just clarifying the aftermarket DO filter better, but no issues sticking with OEM.

Seriously since you are doing longish OCI's the filters you are using make sense, the Ultra even more so but why so much for one they are around 9 bucks at Wally's.

Use a synthetic media filter and Toyota synthetic 0w-20. Great oil.

Explain this:





Pureone on the left. OEM on the right.

I love BITOG, where most don't know what they are talking about.

According to ExxonMobil, no special oil filter is required for the 15k intervals. I cannot say that I am in agreement, but if you are following their direction, then the OEM filter should be fine.

You can find 10-packs of the OE filter on eBay for under $40 shipped:
