Wondering how are Mopar filters? How do they stack up against wix, ac delcos, bosh, mobil and the rest... I see walmart has them.

This claims largely Purolator or Champion:

Made by Champion Labs these days. They are good filters. Not premium/the best but good. They are similar to the other OE filters like AC Delco, Motorcaft, etc... Up to 5000 miles +/- I would not hesitate to use them.

The latest survey at WM here had Purolator filters in the MOPAR box. This was a week ago. The alleged swap to Champ has been out there for a long time ..but it's not apparent at my WM

I've got a couple I bought at WM. They are Purolater made.

They weigh 1oz more than the Proline filter I used which is also a Purolater.

Mopar filters are of High Quality however Champ Labs does not make the MO-090 that is sold at Walmart or any where else.

I recently Emailed Them.

Hello,
I use Mopar Oil Filters for my Vehicles the part numbers are 4781452BB & 5281090, do you produce both of these filters, just curious.
Thanks.

We do not supply these to Mopar.
Thanks

Think the 090 I use is a Purolator. They have shifted away from FRAM.

MOPAR will use who ever is the cheapest bidder. I'ed just get a WIX or some other name brand filter. At least i would know who made it.

WWO this is interesting:) The one and only mopar fitlers walmart had, was M 90 5281090..the dealer had the 4105409... dealer charged $9 for one fitler, $13 at another dealer, like 4 or 5 years ago...walmart seels the 5281090 for $5.75!!
Now, i belive the 5281090 is a viper filter..an oversized one..its a tad fatter and bigger than the 4105409.. and has smaller and afew more oil holes above the ADBV..one neon mechanic so far, stated he dosnt like the 5281090..it caused his noen ot have loud engine knock and rattle at startup..he went back to 4105409 and all went back to normal..
so! what exactly is, hte 5281090? It appears to have more surface are in filter..maybe its mopars version of a purolator pure one?

Ok. MOPAR filters are made by different mfg's. It was Champ Labs to my knolwedge. Champ and Purolater both make good filters so my answer still stands. Use it to 5K.

The box that the Mopar oil filter for the 2.8 Diesel says made in Italy.
And Mopar approved for up to 12,000 miles.
Hope this helps

Like i said in my other post... MOPAR brand stuff is the bottom of the barrel. Maybe you will get a good filter.Maybe you wont. You could get a WIX or some other brand name filter for cheaper. At least then you will know what you are getting.
