Oil Filter....

Hi all,

I´ve just a lil´question concerning the oil filter to be used in my 3,5 V6 first gen.(I´m using synthetic oil btw).

I always use the Mopar/Chrysler filter, but I´d like to change the brand to PUROLATOR since the guy in the shop told me it is one of the best filters you can get for the money.

Is this true or should I stay with Mopar? I know Purolator is a good brand for car stuff in general,but does anyone maybe have experiences with the Purolator oil filter?

Thanks in advance!!!
Benny

I've always used Purolators most of the time. I've never heard anybody having problems with them as with Frams. I agree that they are the best for the money. As a matter of fact, Purolator invented the oil filter.....the name comes from the slogan "Pure oil later"

In my wife's 1989 Oldsmobile Ciera there is a Purolator air filter, and a Purolator oil filter. Previous owner used that brand faithfully. matter of fact I'm going to Auto Zone today to pick up another Purolator air filter and oil filter. 2 thumbs up!

i have been using purolator filters for over a year. just this past oil change i switched over to a larger capacity purolator. i'll see how well this worked out in another several thousand miles i suppose. i've put just over 1000 on this batch of oil and haven't really noticed anything different.

Anybody have any experiences with K&N oil filters, even though they are quite pricey?

I've always used WIX filters, very good quality and only slightly more expensive than discount store brands like Fram, STP,etc... only drawback is they are a little difficult to find sometimes..not a lot of places carry them..

The Mopar #5281090 is a Purolator filter. The only difference is the Mopar still has the large spring in the center behind the anti drainback valve the Purolator brand does not use this spring anymore, it used to. I like the Mopar better and can buy them by the case of 12 for the same price each that Pepboys charges.

Just bough a Mopar filter from a local Chrysler dealer. Interesting beast. White with blue lettering, it reads "Mopar parts FE292" and "Made in Canada". This is supposed to be the #5281090. Base plate looks like Purolator (8 big holes, 6 big crimps to hold the gasket). Bypass valve is unusual design. It's a 1 inch long cilinder welded on the plate at the bottom of the filter. Also the plate that holds the bypass valve is glued to the filter's inner cilinder (probably to seal against oil leaks), something that I never saw with other filters. Seems to be good stuff.

Puralator Pure One?
Buy 2 for the price of the Mobil1, and run extended intervals and change filter twice and top off engine.
5000 (10,000 with LH2 engines) oil change with 5 quarts, and change filter 2500 and pre-fill with 1/2 quart and dump remaining 1/2 into engine.

hypnos suggested using the Mobil 1 M1-301 (and lafrad) becuase it is larger, and its for synthetic oils...

I never said it was for synthetic oils. It will work fine with normal oils.

The pureone is pretty good. But I prefer the M1-301:

I'm currently running a K&N oil filter, but it's my first one, so i haven't had a chance to take a look at it after 6,000 miles with the Mobil1 5W30
