Putting a Toyota filter on a Ford? #4702902

This may be a stupid question. But I'll ask anyway. I own a 2002 Toyota Tacoma and have a bunch of 90915-YZZD1 Toyota OEM filters at home. This cross reference to the Fram 3614. We are possibly going to buy my son a Ford Escape with the 2.0L Ecoboost and in looking at it I noticed that it takes a Motorcraft FL-910S, which ALSO cross references to a Fram 3614.

Stupid question: since I have a bunch of Toyota filters, is it safe to assume that I can use them on the Ford with no issues? I was planning to just buy Motorcraft filters...I usually tend to buy OEM...but since it looks like these two totally different vehicles cross-reference to the same filter I thought it might be worth using what I have. It is going to be a very nice used car with a turbo engine. Any downside to running the Toyota filter? Motorcraft filters are $4 at Walmart, so price/convenience isn't really an issue.

Thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

Its not as efficient as the MC, but it flows good. Sure, its fine.

So I guess if it cross references, then the specs are really close if not identical?

Go for it.

I do somewhat the inverse and use (Walmart clearance) TG8316 filters intended for Ford Zetec engines on my Lexus, which also calls for the 3614.

Motorcraft oil filters have suffered from the infamous Purolator tearing problems, so avoiding MC oil filters is a good idea.
Sure the Toy filters are not as efficient as say a Fram Ultra or Fram ToughGuard, but the Toy filters are good enough. Use them.
Next time a Fram Ultra is really best for that application.

I always considered using the Toyota 90915-YZZD3 filters on my Ranger, which crosses to the Motorcraft FL400S. I dont see why it would be a problem

I've used numerous Ford FL-910S filters on Toyota and Lexus engines and likewise used Toyota filters on Ford/Lincoln/Mercury vehicles. No harm no foul, would be a good way to use them up if you'll no longer have a use for them.

No problem as long as the PSI of the valve is approximately the same.

The filter won't care what brand of car you put it on. I promise!!!

It's a good idea, the Toyota has more media and so far no defects have been found. No extra glue inside, clean, no louvers, etc.

I have a GTR-spec (Synthetic Champ Labs) M1 EP filter on my Rogue, used to run a S2000 Honda on there.

Both MUCH MUCH MUCH better than Nissan service parts.

Don't worry about it. I've got a GM filter (ACDelco) on my Escape so that's not any weirder.

I have a FULL brand filter that crosses to the 90915 YZZD3, even aftermarket toyota filters should be an ok substitute for the FL400S, right? As in, can I run the FULL filter on my Ranger?
