I'm going to change my oil soon, so I need to pick up a filter. I know that FRAM is terrible, so what is good? I'm a low budget man, so im willing to give up a little quality for a drop in price.

I have heard that the motocraft filters are very good, and one of the cheapest. Thus I think im going to try and pick up one of these.

Could someone tell me what part number I need & where I could get one? It seems that pepboys only has FRAM. And I heard that walmart wont carry motocraft anymore.

Help? :)

You can go to your local auto parts store and pick up motorcraft oil filter part# fl820s I think. I go to advance auto parts or autozone.

Apparently you don't know anything about WIX filters. Not a renamed WIX filter, a WIX filter that says NAPA on it. Tell me where to get a premium WIX w/o the NAPA paint, cheaper, and I'll be there.

They're the "#1 Filter in NASCAR" for a reason. I can't think of any filter I'd rather own.

Tell us about your "pet" filter dude.

My Wal-Mart has Super-Tech, Fram, and Motorcraft. The Motorcraft line is being discontinued. Which leaves me using WIX filters.

Auto Value also sells them, though, they do not say NAPA on them. :D

O'Reilly's hasn't made it this far North. In the nearby areas I'm stuck with the weak old standby places. Auto Value, NAPA, Car Quest, Champion, Bumper to Bumper.
