Fram quality (lack of)

Recommended Posts

Never hurts to keep this current. Worst POS ever made.

Yup,

About 15-20 years ago, a Frucked Fam filter ate a bunch of expensive parts in a Toyota 7M all-motor build when it collapsed.

Years ago my 521 blew an oil filter apart. Did it a second time so I look a little deeper. There was some casting flash caught in the relief valve and it couldn't open properly. The oil pump is really a hydraulic pump and god knows the top pressure it might put out. It wasn't a fram but a good quality container is also something that must be considered when buying a filter. Even more so if your pump relief is shimmed.

The ONLY filters I'll use on any engine is Wix (NAPA), OE Nissan, or K&N (I use them on my Motorcycle.) Can't understand how Fram can be so damn awful.

They are coasting on old reputation.

I've heard (and believed) the stories, but never seen that video.  Thanks for posting.  That was a very good comparison!

I used to run Fram on my 240Z years ago, but saw a similar video explaining their flaws. I soon after switched to K&N or Wix filters on all my vehicles. I don't mind paying extra for the K&N simply for the convenience of the welded nut on the end! Makes removal such a breeze!
