Out of boredom I went and did a search on filters on TSC's website and they now list Purolator as their new supplier of filters. Guess this explains why they clearanced all the FRAM filters not long ago. Anyone else have more info on this? I haven't seen any new posts on it here but figured people would like to know. I won't use their filters but I know many here do.

Thanks. I'm semi-interested since someone posted that 16,000 mile OCI cut and post recently. It's at least worth a look.

Good. Never run anything else on my vehicle, certainly not a FRAM. The only brand of filter i have seen literally kill an engine, more than once. Say what you want, ive seen pure1s and Motorcraft after 10-15k in perfectly acceptable condition, and removed pieces of element and adbv valve from several 4.6 and 5.4 3V engines at 5-9k, including an ultra synthetic from a 2008 mustang gt. Lodged in the oil passage where it Ts for the chain tensioner, or cam phasers, taking out oiling to the top end and cmsending aluminum thru the rest of the engine. Also every 2nd or 3rd FRAM i touch has a failed adbv. One qc hiccup that mann/hummel has dealt with vs years of garbage? Its a no brainer...

Purolators have way more design and QC problems than any filter I've seen talked about around here for the last 8+ years.

Another Fram hater like Metal Slug. You really saying every second or third Fram you touch has a bad anti-drainback valve? You've seen Frams kill engines? You have to fight back... Now you go to Walmart and you go over to that filter isle and you pick up that OCOD filter (check inside to make sure the filter has not been used/switched) and you pay for that filter and you go put it on your vehicle. And then you drive that car with that Fram filter on it. Those Fram filters are like women - show them any fear and they will walk all over you. Don't you dare give the OCOD the upper hand.

Can we have a minimum iq as a requirement to signing up on this site? The Tearolator shills are getting worse by the month.

Too bad that contract expired......

And, yet, they STILL seem to be a good oil filters that sell. I will continue to buy the MC FL-400S made by Purolator. That's the ONLY oil filter that was on my trucks engine about 99% of its first 11 years. smile

All MC filters made after Jan 2017 pass USCAR-36 specs too, don't see that advertised for others. I always used FL400s on two fords. Hard to beat the value and quality.
