Bosch D3300: reuse or trash it? #5137663

My M35 has had an average OCI of 5,077 miles since new using 5w-30 synthetic blends, mostly Conoco Phillips oils. The splash shield has about 19 10mm bolts to remove to access and change the oil filter, but I use a Fumoto valve where I only have to bend back a small flap to only drain the oil. That's EZPZ.

On the last OC I installed a Bosch D3300 filter made in 2017. It has cellulose media, not synthetic or blended media. Can I confidently use this filter for two 4,500 to 5,000 mile intervals (about 18 months) and save some time and labor, or should I trash it? I'm not sure if these old version Bosch Distance filters (the black ones) had any tear issues.

You'll hear from both sides on this on.
Ultimately the choice is up to you.

If it is a true blue Bosch Distance Plus D3300, it has synthetic blend media and possibly the heaviest can & baseplate available. Other than some incidents of non-deburred baseplates, there's been virtually no issues with the D+ filters, Now a regular black Bosch Premium 3300, I wouldn't risk those.

+1.

How clean is the motor? If it's dirty meaning partial sludge and or heavy varnish I would want a better filter (IMO Fram Ultra) to run for 2 OCI.

I bought several Bosch D+ when WM dropped the price by half a couple of years ago. I change them every other OCI and haven’t had any issues.

I would run a full synthetic oil filter for two years under ideal conditions. I would change a synthetic blend annually. Again, it's a personal decision. Oil filter is the life of the motor, so to speak. Bosch Distance Plus are well made filters.

Perhaps you can write the pros/cons. Then decide your next course of action. Consider other full synthetic media for future OCI.

Good luck!

Let us know what you decide.

It's the discontinued Bosch Distance D3300, not the new Distance Plus.

I wouldn't since Bosch is made by a company known for tearing filters. If it was an Ultra that would be one thing.

The D+ is the only Puro made filter I trust, and would have no qualms using one for 10,000 miles. They are a sturdy filter.

That said, I am a change the filter when I change the oil type person, but none of my filters are a pain to get to.

There is no access shield for oil drain and oil filter on the splash shield? Seems dealers/oil shops would hate that (as well as owners). I would be tempted to cut my own access if it does not have one.

I would recommend using a Fram Ultra XG7317 or WIx XP 57356XP (Napa Platinum 47356) for long or multiple OCI's

I don't remember offhand what the Bosch size is for the longer version, maybe D3323?

Anyway, if you want to run it for a second OCI, do not take off the filter! Leave it on. Once you unscrew the filter, you must replace it!

You might want to take off the splash shield and never put it back on. Or maybe just not using all 19 bolts. It's a piece of plastic that isn;t heavy, so only putting on 3 or 4 of the bolts should be sufficient to hold it in place ontome

I ran 30,000 miles on a Motorcraft FL-1A in the mid 1990's (3X OCI's) on a Ford 400M in a F250 - it looked just fine when cut open.

Oil filter life is based more on just how grimy the engine is inside.... versus calendar time. Clean engines can go a very long time.

You're reading my mind. I just rounded up the hardware and fasteners in my garage to make a 6X6 inch cutout that can be removed with two screws. Hail to Rube Goldberg, wherever you are.
