Oil change was also due on father's 2002 F150 5.4.

Last oil change:
Pennzoil High Mileage 5w20
Fram TG2
6000 mile oil change interval

This oil change:
Same as last, but always intend to keep it at 5000 mile oil change interval. An extra thousand I believe didn't hurt anything.

The truck had a nasty exhaust leak tick, got the passenger side exhaust manifold replaced (bolts needed drilled and tapped) and now she is silent again. Mechanic said the hole in the exhaust manifold was almost dime sized eek






Don't care for the little wide pleat spacing at the seam, but it held up good. Truck just hit 101,000 miles.

Next up is my jeep with the TG8A on a 7500 mile OCI so looking forward to that when the last remaining thousand miles are approached.

This filter looks good to me. I have seen wider pleat spacing on other brands. Thanks for the cut & post:

It held up well. Wide pleats, oh well. If it didn't break, it didn't fail.

This and the TG or PH 8 are the Fram filters that "look" the roughest after use. Yet they hold up and stay intact. And that's far better than can be said about other filters.

I think you need a camera-upgrade. But thanks for the TG pics regardless. thumbsup

Replace the transmission mount also.
Puts uneeded stress on the manifold also.

There's nothing wrong with his pics ... I can see the filter just fine. The filter held up and did its job. Thank you for doing this cut and post. smile

Great advice. I changed mine this summer and my car "shifts" so smooth now. It was the worn out mount giving me issues.

I have a few of these from the Walmart clearance for my '02 and BIL '04 with the 5.4.

It looks good, pleat spacing at the seam is not an issue, unlike some other manufacturers.

Thanks for the post.

Thanks Kira!

Yes it will, but there will always be one of those "nice" days of the year. I'm fine changing oil in the cold as long as there is no snow or rain. The 4.0 could not be any easier to change oil on lol.

Unless you buy me a new phone, it's gonna be a no from me smile. I think it's because I turn flash on and with the flash bouncing off of the oil on the filter and the oil pan maybe that lessens the quality a bit? I'll take note and turn flash off for the next filter cut open.

You are certainly welcome.
