Did this video help you?

Stan Skaggs: I have seen about a dozen of these filter comparison videos.. none actually compare the filter materials. They just look at the fluff of the metal filter frame or cardboard filter frame.. it is not a beauty contest, right? How well do they filter? Anyone? Anyone? I do not stickup for FRAM or the other companies, but I would like to see some real comparisons. The filter material looks the same on all the different ones.. Can anyone look into this? How does flow through each compare.. etc.. The FRAM is nice in that it has a grip black end on it.. nice and pretty pretty.. LOL

Jesse Gurr: Shut the freak up and give those filters to someone who actually knows crap about filters and go back to your ages 3+ my little pony package you moron, they all work the same and for all the people that actually listen to this ass clown you're all freaking degenerates.

Robert Diehl: Fram Ultra is a great synthetic filter and much like the build quality of the old orange Frams before they went to paper ends..

eldom72: Both are great oil filters; I wouldn't hesitate to use either one. They sell both at Walmart, but I buy Purolator because it's only $3.27 (L14459), compared to Fram which cost $5.67 (PH9688).

jeffscomp: The Fram is a better design. More holes less restriction and the guy opening it doesn't know how it works. I noticed my engine runs better with Fram than Purolator and I never have problems. It still requires a routine oil change but you can stretch the interval further apart.

SvddenDeth: heres my honest opinion i honestly like purolator and wix K&N and mobil 1 filters the best but fram is not as bad as everyone says if you change your filter every oil change fram will do just fine but personally i do it every 5-8k miles since i run full synthetic using a purolator filter and no complaints

Nopiw: your ass burgers are showing

TheArfdog: Cardboard? Cardboard?

panzerabwerkanone: I don't think I will take the advice of a guy who does not know the difference between the anti drain back valve and the bypass valve. You clearly do not. 

Tom Fontana: This guy does't know much about oil filters. First the end caps on a Fram are made of the same materials that's used in all filters, primarily cellulose. Now if your filtering media in your filter does not break down why would Fram's end caps fail. Secondly, that thing that he pointed to on top of the filter is not an ant-drain back valve but a bypass valve. Her makes the same mistake that so many people do. He looks at the filter outside the can and does not envision the filter assembled. When assembled the bypass valve is pressed hard against the end cap and the center tube forming an excellent seal. I have used Fram almost exclusively for over 40 years. I have zero complaints!

Brandon Faircloth: umm we r not owned by champblack

frankj19758: This guy has no idea how Oil filters work. Get some years under your belt before you make a video about oil filters. Just because you are taking automotive class in high school, that does not make you an expert! There absolutely nothing wrong with Fram. Purolator filters suck!

Josh Henderson: CARDBOARD.

Edward st.antoine: they are chapion labs but no where near the same thing. they are made to each companies spec.

Dihedral Dodecahedron: Good enough. Straight forward and comprehensive. Good work.👌

William Randolph: I have a camry,and I NOW will never buy a fram,cant believe the ends are made of CARDBOARD!! wonder how many engines they have ruined

Elty Tran: So I've used both these filters for my car; PH4386 and L14477 for my 2010 Corolla with a 2azfe engine. From my experience, the Fram Extraguard did a better job compared to the Purolator Classic. In my situation, here's why: -1st, the oil flow seem to be less restrictive with the Fram, and the car idle without making a strange 'slurpping' noise every few minutes which I was getting with the Purolator. It could be caused by the spiral design of the Purolator bypass valve or something else, but it just didn't sound right even if the car drove normally. -2nd, the Fram sealed better on my engine. The Purolator never sealed as well and oil would slowly leak from one side over time. Over the oil change interval I would end up using an additional quart of oil. I'm not sure whether it was only happening on my application only or a bad batch of filters. Twice using a Puralotor Classic, I've had this occurred to me. I know Purolator looks like it's built better than Fram in every way, but I care more about how it's function on my particular car. Also from what I've read, Honeywell(Fram) now makes Honda OEM oil filters with fiber end discs, and some Toyota OEM filters don't use any end caps to hold the filter media. Maybe that tells us something.

Matt D: THUMBS UP FOR THE Cardboard cardboard CARD..BOARD.. CARRRRRRRRRRRD.....BOARRRRRRRRD!!! 

Edward st.antoine: champ make a lot of filters for a lot of companies. they are not the same however as they are built to the respective companies specs. well at least some of em are.

tingokuman: Ive always used fram oil filters NEVER AGAIN ! the purolators are usually cheaper by dollars in European cars.thanx for the video 

David1187: Cardboard? Technically they are called fiber end caps. I'm not a huge fan of the Extra Guard, but the Tough Guard is a great filter IMO. Built pretty much the same way except it has a silicon anti drain back valve and better media. I think at this point I would rather run Fram. Google Purolator torn media and see for yourself.

Rott BOY: Do most of my oil changes (except when I get those complementary free ones from the dealer). Have been using Super Techs, but now that WMart got rid of them, will use Purolators. Wow, never knew that Fram uses junk internals. Great info on your video for us working guys. 

reso1349: I was just looking at the Purolator web site today and it appears that they are now part of Mann-Hummel group.

PromisKeeper: Thanks. That was helpful.

Bone Daddy: fram put there focus on the outside of the filter to get people to think it is better, orange paint, different then the other filters and relates to construction equipment or "industrial" grade equipment fooling people into thinking the filter is heavy duty, also the grip paint hinting that the filter is quality outside and in, when in reality the quality ends as soon as you go inside the case.

derf109: Adler1945: wrong! Rank Group is a gambling outfit and there's no way all those diverse manufacturers are under the same ownership at all.

joeyf504327: wow, the cheap purolator is way better than fram! and careful when saying all filters are the same. k&n filters are much heavier than other filters because they are beefed up all around. bosch and k&n are the best filters you can buy...

Julio Goris: Yeah I don't use fram anymore the gasket on my filter split in two and I had a crazy oil leak I thought my engine broke or something then I check it was the dumb filter so yeah no more fram

David Vollandt: i hate to break it to you man, but these filers were designed to operate in an engine and filter oil, and not designed to impress us amateurs looking at a cutout of the insides. objective test results is where the information is. Anything else is noise.

abzdefg321123: Purolator is not made by champ labs. Up until recently Purolator was independent and made their own filters; however they were recently bought out by Bosch whom were previously made by champ labs but are now similar to purolators. confusing? yes.. lol.

Indy452: The only thing I really like about the Frams are the grippy stuff on the lower half of their filters...I wish other filter company's would do that...

Haffschlappe: In Germany we have the excellent SCT oilfilters!

Willow Fiasco: i heard the facebook message noise and it made me change tabs, you should of saw how disappointed i was when it was in the video.

Monsiemage: Purolator is also cheaper.

Ben Moran: did you tighten it by hand ?

GremlinTale: For starters anyone that THINKS those end caps are just cardboard... well, that pretty much sums up your intellect.

2006DURAMAX: Nice video. But a quick note; Purolator (Bosch, Mann, Motorcraft) is not made by Champion Labs (Mobil, K&N, STP, Royal Purple). They are two different companies.

berryfafilling: hey i like cardboard....

o0Sp3cia1K0o: the gaps between the media on the fram...looks like madona teeth

EmcSqrd: Champion Laboratories is actually owned by Fram. Check out their website.

Eddie Fine: I am thankful to the fellow who did this review, as I've now seen several. I once was ignorant about fram, but now I SEE the truth. What amazes me is how many guys , (for who knows why), are commenting against this review. PEOPLE JUS GOTTA ARGUE I GUESS!!!! The fact is before your eyes. Grow up people, and be thankful for understanding the truth about a corporation's cheap tricks in order to make money with their name at your expense. NOW... WHICH ONE DO YOU REALLY WANT TO STAND WITH ?

jebova2301: Well, do a bit of searching on google. There is more than plenty of information about this out there. The best examples are all the people who have had a used oil analysis done by Blackstone Labs. They are totally impartial, and tell you what contaminants are in the oil, oil life remaining, etc etc. Fram oil pretty much ALWAYS comes back MUCH worse than Purolator/Wix/K&N/other quality filters, especially in the "particulate matter" test. Particulate matter is crap that can score your cylinders.

Ructy356: The ONLY problem I have ever had with FRAM filters is when I get one that appears similar to the one listed on the packaging.and printed on the filter can .. but is actually a different filter. THAT can cause a HUGE problem if you don't check the new filter against the old one or don't verify that you have oil pressure right away on start-up.

Torque Effect: *brohoof* /)

dlanes: That filter actually looks like an improvement from their old filters. I wouldn't be afraid to run that on my car, their old filters were worst.

EMD SD70 MAC-h Phase II: hello brony

ApSykesThewolf: then again, this is a million dollar business... i mean if you can shave off 10 cents per product and times that by a million, you pretty much saved your company alot of money... i mean look at brake calipers, probaly most important part of stopping a car... did you know car companies build brake calipers as cheap as they can but keeping the bare minimum they need to keep it so the car can stop safely? for them its: make it work + Save $ = More profit

sleazoid99: Like others, I've used Fram for years and never had issues. Your argument "Does it look like it's constructed for use in a vehicle?" isn't very convincing. If there are cardboard components in the filters it's because they are sufficient. Do you have any real data that can be used objectively to compare the products?

playstation2bigs: have you seen Vic oil filters? made in japan
