    Also, Fram filters were specifically not allowed for the Cummings diesels used in Dodge trucks, they had under piston cooling jets. The fram would shed particles that would plug the jet, and the result was engine failure not covered by warranty. So there are 2 cases of fram failures. There is a TSB form Dodge on it, sometimes it is on line, but gets removed as copyright rules demand.

    Fram used be be made in Nevada, MO and used to be very good. After they were bought by Allied Signal they were managed for maximum profit. Meaning the Nevada plant was closed, and every thing made where it can be bought the cheapest. Lots of people out of work as is normal for the USA now.

    IMHO, you are paying for a name. Kinda like BMW maybe????

    I would avoid any filter that looks like this -

    I can confirm that the black stuff comes off and makes a mess.

    The new Purolator Pure Ones have a similar grip but the entire filter is coated with it

    Oh OH! I wonder if they have been outsourced to China like their lesser filters.
