Purolator Vs Fram Oil Filters




What do you think about this video?

tingokuman: Ive always used fram oil filters NEVER AGAIN ! the purolators are usually cheaper by dollars in European cars.thanx for the video 

David1187: Cardboard? Technically they are called fiber end caps. I'm not a huge fan of the Extra Guard, but the Tough Guard is a great filter IMO. Built pretty much the same way except it has a silicon anti drain back valve and better media. I think at this point I would rather run Fram. Google Purolator torn media and see for yourself.

Elty Tran: So I've used both these filters for my car; PH4386 and L14477 for my 2010 Corolla with a 2azfe engine. From my experience, the Fram Extraguard did a better job compared to the Purolator Classic. In my situation, here's why: -1st, the oil flow seem to be less restrictive with the Fram, and the car idle without making a strange 'slurpping' noise every few minutes which I was getting with the Purolator. It could be caused by the spiral design of the Purolator bypass valve or something else, but it just didn't sound right even if the car drove normally. -2nd, the Fram sealed better on my engine. The Purolator never sealed as well and oil would slowly leak from one side over time. Over the oil change interval I would end up using an additional quart of oil. I'm not sure whether it was only happening on my application only or a bad batch of filters. Twice using a Puralotor Classic, I've had this occurred to me. I know Purolator looks like it's built better than Fram in every way, but I care more about how it's function on my particular car. Also from what I've read, Honeywell(Fram) now makes Honda OEM oil filters with fiber end discs, and some Toyota OEM filters don't use any end caps to hold the filter media. Maybe that tells us something.

Matt D: THUMBS UP FOR THE Cardboard cardboard CARD..BOARD.. CARRRRRRRRRRRD.....BOARRRRRRRRD!!! 

Michael G: fram put there focus on the outside of the filter to get people to think it is better, orange paint, different then the other filters and relates to construction equipment or "industrial" grade equipment fooling people into thinking the filter is heavy duty, also the grip paint hinting that the filter is quality outside and in, when in reality the quality ends as soon as you go inside the case.

Rott BOY: Do most of my oil changes (except when I get those complementary free ones from the dealer). Have been using Super Techs, but now that WMart got rid of them, will use Purolators. Wow, never knew that Fram uses junk internals. Great info on your video for us working guys. 

PromisKeeper: Thanks. That was helpful.

derf109: Adler1945: wrong! Rank Group is a gambling outfit and there's no way all those diverse manufacturers are under the same ownership at all.

elzorro43: I will never use Fram products again. As for those guys down below saying how good some of the Russian oil filters are I will say they are full of crap, I will never put any thing Russian in my car, Russian cars are known for auto destructing after living the factory. Nothing good ever came out of Russia.

joeyf504327: wow, the cheap purolator is way better than fram! and careful when saying all filters are the same. k&n filters are much heavier than other filters because they are beefed up all around. bosch and k&n are the best filters you can buy...

David Vollandt: i hate to break it to you man, but these filers were designed to operate in an engine and filter oil, and not designed to impress us amateurs looking at a cutout of the insides. objective test results is where the information is. Anything else is noise.

abzdefg321123: Purolator is not made by champ labs. Up until recently Purolator was independent and made their own filters; however they were recently bought out by Bosch whom were previously made by champ labs but are now similar to purolators. confusing? yes.. lol.

Indy452: The only thing I really like about the Frams are the grippy stuff on the lower half of their filters...I wish other filter company's would do that...

Haffschlappe: In Germany we have the excellent SCT oilfilters!

Willow Fiasco: i heard the facebook message noise and it made me change tabs, you should of saw how disappointed i was when it was in the video.

Monsiemage: Purolator is also cheaper.

Ben Moran: did you tighten it by hand ?

GremlinTale: For starters anyone that THINKS those end caps are just cardboard... well, that pretty much sums up your intellect.

2006DURAMAX: Nice video. But a quick note; Purolator (Bosch, Mann, Motorcraft) is not made by Champion Labs (Mobil, K&N, STP, Royal Purple). They are two different companies.

berryfafilling: hey i like cardboard....

o0Sp3cia1K0o: the gaps between the media on the fram...looks like madona teeth

NASA787: Champion Laboratories is actually owned by Fram. Check out their website.

Eddie Fine: I am thankful to the fellow who did this review, as I've now seen several. I once was ignorant about fram, but now I SEE the truth. What amazes me is how many guys , (for who knows why), are commenting against this review. PEOPLE JUS GOTTA ARGUE I GUESS!!!! The fact is before your eyes. Grow up people, and be thankful for understanding the truth about a corporation's cheap tricks in order to make money with their name at your expense. NOW... WHICH ONE DO YOU REALLY WANT TO STAND WITH ?

MrJaybody: Love the Purolater, especially the Pure One! Well worth it.

jebova2301: Well, do a bit of searching on google. There is more than plenty of information about this out there. The best examples are all the people who have had a used oil analysis done by Blackstone Labs. They are totally impartial, and tell you what contaminants are in the oil, oil life remaining, etc etc. Fram oil pretty much ALWAYS comes back MUCH worse than Purolator/Wix/K&N/other quality filters, especially in the "particulate matter" test. Particulate matter is crap that can score your cylinders.

Ructy356: The ONLY problem I have ever had with FRAM filters is when I get one that appears similar to the one listed on the packaging.and printed on the filter can .. but is actually a different filter. THAT can cause a HUGE problem if you don't check the new filter against the old one or don't verify that you have oil pressure right away on start-up.

Torque Effect: *brohoof* /)

dlanes: That filter actually looks like an improvement from their old filters. I wouldn't be afraid to run that on my car, their old filters were worst.

EMD SD70 MAC-h Phase II: hello brony

ApSykesThewolf: then again, this is a million dollar business... i mean if you can shave off 10 cents per product and times that by a million, you pretty much saved your company alot of money... i mean look at brake calipers, probaly most important part of stopping a car... did you know car companies build brake calipers as cheap as they can but keeping the bare minimum they need to keep it so the car can stop safely? for them its: make it work + Save $ = More profit

sleazoid99: Like others, I've used Fram for years and never had issues. Your argument "Does it look like it's constructed for use in a vehicle?" isn't very convincing. If there are cardboard components in the filters it's because they are sufficient. Do you have any real data that can be used objectively to compare the products?

playstation2bigs: have you seen Vic oil filters? made in japan

Ben Moran: Care to explain, WHY???

Dave Quick: "Does it look like it's constructed for use in a vehicle?....Might want to ask that to the engineers,with university degrees, and STLE certification, that design and engineer these filters......

Xénos Polemistí̱s: OMFG where do I get the mylilbronies oil filter?

RickTorn: Just another superficial review.

Klperformance68: Fram markets to people that have no clue! Just put pretty orange paint on a turd & sell it!! I won't even buy Fram air filters!! JUNK

EasyGoVideos: Used a Purolator once and the seal broke after I tightened it. I don't see a problem with Fram as long as you're not trying to get too many miles out of it.

Ben Moran: Agree.

Ben Moran: I find the new Purolator synthetic filter awesome for the price. It has more dirt capacity than Mobil One EP and is 4$ cheaper. It also has that sandy grip paint that makes it non-slippery.

mzondi1970: Like my purolators

Ben Moran: Oil filters aren't made for fingers, man.

Jim Cori: Purolator .... 40yrs and never a problem. The only filter I use Fram....... failures are well noted. I wouldn't use one in my lawnmower

MangoSmoothie16: If the brake calipers can lock up the tires, they're more than adequate for street use.

paquiao manuel: yes..yes..yes..."stupid" we all see is cardboard you dont have to repeat it many times...get your purolator filter and stick it in your "ass"...who cares about this "crap" people buys what it can..or what they want...

Darth Exodus: where in this video do you measure or test performance, durability or function? that's what I thought.

Pnoerre: Also any Ferrari uses Fram and UFi Filters

TheLBCSublime: Might wanna check out some genuine comedy on YouTube if you fell out of your chair over that

Randall Wyatt: dont ever buy a purolator

ApSykesThewolf: then again, look at honda's suggested ATF change interval, 90k Miles is too steep for atf fluid.... and alot of people who listen to that had to get their transmissions replaced, sure mfg knows best, but what if the mfg designed things badly so you HAVE to get it repaired at their shop or buy another of their vehicles? they dont make money selling you one car and thats it, they make money selling you cars.
