OK, maybe my search on here wasn't good enough, but I have yet to see where anyone has posted that they use Mobil 1 Oil filters. Seems I see K&N, Fram, or AC Delco.... any reason why?
There was a thread a several months back where there seemed to be a cluster of leaky K&N's. Might have just been a bad batch. I had an Autolite leak like a screen door in a submarine, despite tightening it much more than the law allows.DiSTuRBeDGTO said:K&N leaks? I've got K&N and mine doesn't leak? Whose got leaks with the K&N?
Mine doesn't leak, only one person here is having problems with their KN oil filter due to a possible block problem.adearmas said:That's it my KN oil filter is out the window. They say here they leak!

M1 oil filters are good but some say their oil pressure is reduced slightly. I guess they flow better then most filters.
Good oil filters are Napa gold made by Wix or a Wix oil filter. K&N is widely supported though with oil gurus.

All these recommendations are just propaganda being spread by Leninist oil companies trying to take your freedoms away from you. Really GMH I expected better from you.

When I used a high grade synthetic on my previous vehicle (cough AMSoil, :wall: bring on the trolls! actually keep your comments to yourself) I would do a filter change every 3,000 miles that displaces a quart of oil. Then change the oil at 15,000 miles.
