    Fram Extra Guard going to Metal End Caps?

    Are Fram Drive and Extra Guard the same filter? Wonder why drive doesn’t have the 10k rating if that’s the case.

    Fram Extra Guard going to Metal End Caps?

    I purchased one but did not get a new build date where this change happened. I got an old style. It was cheap though, only $3.5

    Fram Extra Guard going to Metal End Caps?

    Saw this video where someone cut open an PH7317 and it had metal end caps and ecore. Apparently they got it from Amazon, so I don’t think it should be counterfeit? Also no silicone ADBV, but I’ll take this instead since Hondas have filter under the engine. I bought one from Amazon to check, will...

    '22 Accord Hybrid - 70% Oil Life @ 4k+ Miles?

    Follow the light. Use a premium oil like Pennzoil PUP and a premium filter like Fram Ultra and just follow what the car tells you. Honda's MM system is pretty smart and takes into account how many cold starts, short trips, etc. I follow it on my CRV with no issues. Engine looks clean as the day...

    The New Fram Ultra......

    If you have a popular filter size, like 7317 or 9688, chances are the metal ones are already gone. :(
