    Good idea to change oil filter every 5000 miles

    dnewton3, Wix themselves specifically state that ProTecs/Microgards should only be used for 5,000 miles. So while you have a point in that the Fram Extra Guard has a guarantee to last OEM OCIs/OFCIs, Wix jobber filters <span style="font-weight: bold">do not</span>. Furthermore, it isn't logical...

    Good idea to change oil filter every 5000 miles

    I'm surprised nobody in this thread has mentioned the obvious caveat yet. It all depends on what the filter media is made of: Jobber-Tier filters with paper media (i.e. Wix ProTec, NAPA Silver, Microgard, Fram Extra Guard, Purolator Classic, etc.) should be used for no longer than 5,000 to...

    Bosch D+ D3410

    I have two Bosch D+ D3410 filters. One has a date code of F04H12F1 and has louver holes on the center tube, the other has a date code of F06G18F1 and has circular holes on the center tube. I don't think I really care about the actual dates because these are both fairly new, but I was just...

    As far as I know the brands of oil that typically use the most percentage of Ester base oil would have to be Redline and Motul.

    If you're going to be hitting 5,000 RPM a lot because of the mountains, I definitely think you should switch to 0w-40.
