I installed one of these on my truck tonight. Normally I'd just use a Performax PO-21 filter we use in our shop (Puro Classic clone) but forgot to grab one on the way home yesterday. So I went to the parts store and got a Motorcraft since it's close to the same thing as what I've been using. I know they're designed for Fords but I can't see it having an issue on a Toyota or am I wrong? The Performax had about 4k miles on it, and I changed it because I plan to run this oil 10k miles. Figured the Motorcraft would be up to the job for this time around. Just wanting to make sure I'm not setting myself up for disaster here.

I will be cutting the Performax open one of these days to see how it looks with 4k miles on it, same thing with the Motorcraft when it's done.

As long as that's a proper cross reference you won't have any issues. I've seen a few members here who have ran Motorcraft filters on Jeeps. My buddy runs Motorcraft oil filters on his 08 Jeep Commander 6cyl & I put a Motorcraft filter on my Generac whole house generator. Nothing to worry about on a Toyota either as long as it's the proper size. I also put a Motorcraft FL-820S on a friend of mine's 08 Ram with the 5.7 Hemi.

It is according to the O'Reillys website lookup. And it was the same size as the old filter that came off.

I use the FL 910 on my Focus. Have for years. I also use the 910 on my Briggs 21HP mower.. My son uses the FL 400 on his 07 Dodge Ram V6. Works well for him.

It is very common to run Motorcraft Fl-400S's on Toyota/Lexus vehicles to get a good, widely-available oversize vs. factory filters. You will find this frequently on Toyota truck forums and, as mentioned, among Jeep owners.

I ran a FL-400S on our Lexus until I had an ADBV failure with one this past winter. There were a couple of other cases of this reported recently and one persuasive argument was that it was the seal between the base parts, not the ADBV itself (which could have been true in my case; I could find nothing wrong with mine on dissection). Hopefully this was something unique to a bad batch of Fl-400S and not widespread.

The filter mounting location in most toyota Vs makes the ADBV function or base components' seal critical since they will otherwise drain down quickly.

FL-400S is the longer version of the FL-910S.

jongies3 - what orientation is the filter on the 2004 3.4L V6?

Made by Purolator ? I think the odd one (I use the 910 & 500) is the FL500s with the low bypass pressure. Seems other MC's are close to the competition in valve settings ... I only run 5k on these ...

On that 5vz I am pretty sure they are about -10 degrees from the horizontal. It was even worse on the successor 4.0L. From what I recall of the one of those I worked on, it was about -45 degrees from the horizontal, though accessible from the top.

Would say no harm, but if the filter points down it defeats the main purpose of the base end bypass setup. Toyota filters even in the next size down probably have more filtering element. For sure the 400s equivalent, the 90915-yzzD3 has more element. I don't know where people get the idea the factory element has less media.

I don't think anyone thinks the Toyota filters lack media. They are well-known to be very dense. The oversize choice is often for extra capacity, and for greater efficiency - they do not seem to deliver it at the level of the premium filters on the aftermarket.

No problem. I've use them on my 2004 Tacoma 3.4 for years.

Motorcraft FL910s filters are excellent filters, and should easily be up to the task.
If they're the correct cross for your engine, then I'd say go for it.
