UPDATE - The host suffered a "Catastrophic Hardware Failure" (*specifics not shared) on 01/13 and the "latest available" backup for the website and database were restored.  At this point they have been unable to recover any later versions of the database.

     We are going to give them another 72hrs to pull off a miracle and find something later than 05/21 before we fully move forward with normal forum operations.  Maybe we'll luck out, but to be perfectly honest, it's not looking good.

     It is still recommended that new members wait to register for the time being, as any new accounts created before our final decision on a path forward is made, may not exist once this is taken care of. This is also true for new topics, posts, status updates, profile & account changes, etc.

 

As always, we appreciate your patience as ask that you hold on just a little longer.

Oil Filter Comparison

I used to only use those orange Fram filters.. I still use Fram but I get the top end one now. None of the Walmart’s around where I live carry the supertech brand filters, I watched a guy on YouTube cut them open and they were about the same quality as the top end Fram but for $3.

I only use Mobil 1 full synthetic and a Mobil 1 oil filter on my vehicles.  That's what I've been doing for the last twenty years.  I try to change the oil every 10k miles, but sometimes it goes further.  I've never had an issue with the engine oil such.

 

I used to use whatever the quick oil change place did until I slung a rod in my Sentra.  Since then I've changed my own oil and used high quality items.

Oem nissan filters are less than $5 online. I feel there is no point in using more expensive filters.

Word. 

 

And I change oil every 4,000 miles, or whenever I get around to it, whichever comes last.

These are some nice little vids. Definitely will steer my filter choice in the future. Probably do the OEM for $5. It’s a nice touch that it comes with a crush washer.

I ran Mobil 1 & tried to change every 6,000K but it often ended up more like 8-10K. When they opened my engine at 106K, the cylinders still had crosshatching & the interior was pristine. They said it was the nicest looking engine anywhere near those miles they had ever seen.
