Here is a Wix 51348 filter that had 5500 miles on the OCI from a 2009 Ford Focus.

It was replaced by a Napa Gold 1348 and had Pennzoil HM 5w-20 replaced in the crankcase. I had put 4oz of seafoam in the old oil 150 miles ago.

Tough to beat the consistent quality of Wix/NAPA Gold filters for the money. Hope current ownership doesn't degrade the quality for the sake of $$$$.

That oil in the pan looks pretty clean. How many Months on the oci?

Looks like one month old oil!


Seafoarm? NO!

Alcohol is bad in the crankcase.

4 oz wouldnt hurt ONCE.

Filter looks good! This is usually the Wix I put on Kohler outdoor power equipment engines. Thanks for the cut and post. thumbsup

Save SeaFoam for the gas and intake. Forget adding it to oil. Forget adding anything to the oil.

Who is current ownership? Did they sell out to some vulture capitalist?

Ah - thank you. If memory serves, Mann+Hummel makes pretty good filters, don't they?

Yes. I would be very surprised if they messed with Wix. But we shall see.

They also own Purolator, aka tear-o-lato aka Burr-o-lator. I think I've seen reports of the Mobil1 Filters from Mann Hummel having the burred tapping plate problem where it slices the ADBV.

Geez is there gonna be just one oil filter company left? Guess I'll stick with Fram Ultra XG until mega-corp buys them and squeezed the life out of 'em.

Too late. Allied-Signal did that to Fram years ago .
