Oil Filter
 
Hey what's up! I'm kind ah new to the forum but not to the zetec engine. Anyway just thought I'd share this with y'all! instead of using the O.E.M. oil filter I use a XG8A by Fram. You can use any of the 8A series filters I just like the XG8A's! The PH8A's are like three or four bucks at wal-mart so there a little cheaper than the motorcraft filters...

keep using a fram and you will be puttin a motor in it...90 percent of motors that come to our shop have fram filters on them...

zx3zetech 07-11-2009 09:00 PM

PH8A and XG8A are big filters much bigger like twice the size of stock! XG8A is similar to the K&N filter! what does PH8316 go to? isn't smaller than a PH8A ?

ajp 07-11-2009 09:13 PM

dont buy fram, especially from wal mart. wal mart dictates to fram how the filters they will sell are made to drive costs down, but then obviously quality goes down the shitter too (not to say they were good to start out with). K&N is the minimum you should be using. Pay a little more now or a lot more later.

zx3zetech 07-11-2009 09:31 PM

So what filters do you recommend ajp?

zx3zetech 07-11-2009 09:45 PM

whoa there...that has to be the longest double post I have seen

zx3zetech 07-11-2009 10:08 PM

yeah sorry about that idk why it double posted.

dsmuts 07-11-2009 11:05 PM

I use fram on everything as long as you change the oil at the right intervals you will be fine. Never had to replace the motor on any car i've ever owned.
