Oil Filter Question

I am still running with the stock oil filter cartridge on my 55 F100 223 6 cyl and would like to know if these type of filters need to be replaced during every oil change or should they be good for about 7,000 mies?

How often do you change your oil? Does your engine have the full-flow or bypass filter?

The stock filter on that truck is a full flow filter. IMO, it is wrong to put all that nice clean fresh oil in the engine and run it through a dirty filter. If it were my truck and not a show truck where someone who knew what they were looking at was going to judge it on originality I would install the adapter kit so to use the FL1A filter. Much less mess and cheaper.

Thanks. No, it's not a show truck and although I have thought about installing one of those filter adapter kits, I have read mixed reviews about them. It seems like a few have run into problems not getting a good seal and was experiencing leaking. Not sure what to do but you are roight about being less messy and expensive.

Filters get more efficient at removing particle as they collect junk (to a point). If you could get rid of the oil in the canister (some canisters had drains), I'd replace it less often than every oil change.

Almost all new cars are going back to canisters to eliminate the bejillions of tons of steel going to the dump from a filter change. I never had a problem with them.

I've run the adapters since they first came out. I currently have one on my 1955 Ford model 850 farm tractor. I currently have on on my 1956 F350 with the 272 engine. The adapter was leaking on this truck when I bought it. A new dry gasket install and all is well. The secret to a good installation is to install the gasket to the block dry and the adapter plate positioned correctly. Try it, you'll like it.

I did not know the new cars were going back to a canister type filter. I wonder how the oil change folks will like that. Much more clean up work. Wonder how many will pay for a change and not get it. The trash is going to wind up somewhere anywhere.

The mfr's are doing it a better way. The best example I know of is on the GM 2.2/2.4 EcoTec engines. They cast a well in the front of the block, with a plastic lid that unscrews. The well is self-draining, the filter pops out from the top almost dry after maybe 15 minutes sitting. I have changed them without even getting my hands dirty. ****CAUTION _ leave the sound OFF on the video!! ***

We bought my wife a new 4 cyl. '06 Fusion that had that kind of filter, although the cover was on the bottom of the engine instead and had a little drain plug in it. She always had the dealer change the oil after she got it, but one time she had a business trip to take and didn't have time to get it in to the dealer so I did it myself. When I pulled the cover off, there was NO FILTER!!! The engine still got plenty of oil pressure so there was no immediate damage done, but I hate the thought that it went 6000 miles without a filter in it. If the FORD DEALERSHIP is capable of that kind of idiocy, just imagine what the minimum wage grease monkeys at Jiffy Lube are probably capable of! For this reason alone, I prefer a spin-on filter. Ain't no way it's getting out of the service bay without one of those and no one knowing!

P.S. Hey Ross, that's a good video, but you might want to add a disclaimer about the salty language. Kids these days! Can't even change an oil filter without swearing in every breath.

Oops, I'll admit I didn't even have the sound on -- I wouldn't expect there would be anything interesting (or dirty) those punks would have to say. Thanks for the heads-up!

That's hard to believe on your wife's car, and how could you prove it to Jiffy Lube (or whoever)?? I wouldn't go to one of those places because of the platic cap, easy to crack. But then I wouldn't go to one of those places, period. Too many of my sons' friends worked there, and I heard stories...
