What are people running for oil filters these days? The AC Delco filter is now PF52E, and it looks cheesy. It also states with threaded insert. What ever that means. I just want a good filter I can know won't fail.

I like the white purolator classic filters. They aren't expensive and are made like the old style Delco ones. The other more expensive ones don't seem to be any better to me.

I have heard a lot of positive about Purolator. I may try that one. I had to replace the oring, and gasket in the filter adapter along with the cooler lines. So what better time to do a oil change, and PCV valve.

On occasion I look at "Bob the Oil Guy" forum.  Off of the top of my head the ones that are recommended are Wix, Purolator, NAPA Gold, and surprisingly WalMart's own brand.  I don't seem to see WalMart's brand anymore at the stores.  Hand's down the absolute worst, Fram.

Since I have every vehicle in the fleet running the same filter now, I buy Napa golds by the 12-pack like a garage would, without boxes... They are stupid cheap, like $3 or so, and work well.

If you want a quality filter that actually does filtering the only option is WIX. Most Napa filters are Wix filters.

I have seen independent filter research that was eye opening.

Wix was the best. Fram was one of the worst, it mostly just reduced your oil pressure.
