A lot of people swear by Fram...I'll never use one unless i'm in desperation mode and then it will be replaced asap. We use Napa and Fleetgaurd filters at work. I use Napa on my personal vehicles. A lot of the older Fords use the same filter between the V8's and 6cyl engines. 1515 is the filter # for Napa. The 1.6 engine uses a totally different one but the 2.0 and 2.3 use the 1515.

I am curious to know what type of failures Fram has had as stated above. I remember back in the day, it was Pennziol and Fram PH8A. What fails, and what is the outcome?
 
Thanks,
Dave

On Fram filters the paper element tends to come apart & you can imagine what happens once that happens.  When I worked for Advance Auto I heard that so many times about the paper element coming apart & starving the engine of oil so that would prevent me from ever buying a Fram filter.
