Oil Filters

Post by Frank » Fri Jan 28, 2005 2:22 pm

While I was getting my Dart ready for some serious commuting, I ran into a problem with oil pressure shortly after changing the oil. It turned out the pressure switch was giving a false alarm when the engine warmed but in the process of troubleshooting, I tried to read up on oil filters. I came across a posting on http://www.slantsix.com on oil filters that had a link to an oil filter study. I found it quite interesting and hope you will find it useful. I don't expect to be buying Fram oil filters for my next oil change.

Another study of oil filters was done on http://www.bobistheoilguy.com. That site has a forum and one of the topics is BOBISTHEOILGUY FILTER TESTS. Another interesting review of oil filters.

If you have a Honda Prelude, you might find the NTPOG Oil Filter Review useful. It also has some interesting information about oil filters in general.

Here is a PDF of a magazine article doing a physical comparison of 15 different filters for the 12V Cummins http://www.turbodieselregister.com/OIL_FILTER.pdf

I think the Oil Filter link is still good but the webmaster appears to have some sort of block on linking.

Try this link instead:
