I noticed when i start my car up in the morning or in the afternoon (when ever the cars sits for a couple of hours) no matter if its hot, cold or warm i get a rattle kind of noise out of the engine as if it was knocking. I was wondering is that normal? Is not or if it is where does it come from and how can i repair this problem.

WIX, Motorcraft, or purolator premium

the motorcraft and purolator are the same thing but the motorcraft is cheaper - can be found at walmart

WIX, NAPA gold, and car qwest premium are the same thing also

Don't use FRAM...

My understanding is that all filters are not created equal, better ones have a diaphram or other device that dosen't let all the oil drain into the pan.

Others do not have this device and let all the oil drain away from the valve train and pump. If I'm not completely right someone let me know it's been a while since I read about it.
