Oil filter question.

Hey guys...I'm new here, just got a 06 accord with 11k miles...I'm going to go with syn oil mobil 1 and was going buy a mobil 1 filter but, that price is really high.

Should I stick with a mobil 1 filter or get one from honda?

Thank you for any info.

And If I get the mobil 1 filter do I need to change it out every 3k of can I change it out every other oil change?

I hope you're not going to dump the M1 oil at 3Kmiles. What a total waste of perfectly good oil that would be. Honda filters are made for them by Fram so that wouldn't be the best way to go. Purolator, Wix, Hastings, M1,...........any of those are superior to the Honda filter.

The M1 filter will easily go 10,000 miles as will any of the others. An oil analysis about 5,000 miles into your second run of Mobil 1 will tell you how far you can go. Eight to ten thousand miles is common.

Wow, an 06 with only 11k miles? That's a good find!

M1 filters are expensive, but they do a relatively good job. Purolator Gold filters do a good job as do OE Honda filters. But if you run a decent filter (like any of the three stated above), and Mobil1, you can easily go 5-7,000 miles before changing your oil. 3k OCI's are a thing of the past - you can still do them, but why waste your money? If you have doubts, get UOA's done every few oil changes. They will usually tell you how long you can run on a particular blend of oil (and M1 is running anywhere from 6500-10k+)

EDIT: RTF beat me too it..

IMO, there are better filters out there than the Honeywell-made OEM Honda filters... and less expensive.

Mobil 1 filters are made by Champion Labs, which also make K&N, SuperTech and AC Delco filters. The Mobil 1 and K&N filters are their higher-end offerings, while the SuperTech is their budget offering. Any of them will work fine.

Like it has already been stated, Purolator filters are good filters too. They offer two models... PureOne and Premium Plus. The PureOne filters are more expensive and have higher filtration, while the Premium Plus have less expensive and have higher flow. Either work well... it just depends on what your preference is. Purolator also makes filters for other companies (e.g. Quaker State and Advance Auto).

As RTexasF stated, with Mobil 1 oil, you should easily be able to go 7500 miles or more between oil changes. I go 7500 miles between changes on conventional oil on our Pilot... and have received very good results from UOAs.

Definitely buy a better filter if you're using M1 oil.
I use M1 with a K&N filter and changes my oil every 5k to 6k. Good thing about the K&N is how easy to install and remove with the built-in bolt.

It was probably a dealership - they like torquing things down way too much.

get a K&N filter next time and just use a wrench to install/uninstall. Really saves a lot of time and effort.

Mobil 1 filters are expensive and not worth it..I would get a Super Tech for 3 bucks...both made by Champion Labs and the ST are cheap and can be found handily at all Walmarts.

The 2006 Honda has an oil monitoring system that wont allow for the long drain intervals that synthetics are needed for. I would use a good synthetic blend for the 5k oil change intervals the MMS is gonna spit out.

Cool

I filled my car with Mobil 1 today also, and used the ProLine filter from PepBoys. The person there told me it's just a re-branded Purolator Premium Plus filter. Do you guys think this filter would hold up for 10k miles?

I bought a 5qt bottle from Walmart, and when after putting in 4.5qt (according to the tick marks on the bottle), the oil level was less than halfway above the low mark. Should I just dump the entire 5qts in?

Also, if I changed my oil every 10k miles using Mobil 1 and provided proof of this when it comes time to sell the car, wouldn't this give the impression that I neglected the car to the person/dealership I'm selling it to? Because the typical car owner who do not know about these awesome car forums stick to the 3-5k mile rule regardless of what oil they use, right?

2005 Honda Accord Sedan EX I4, 2 PureOne filters, $9.48 (free shipping if you buy enough stuff to rack up $25 total order).



I read LOTS of bad things about FRAM/Honeywell online, if anyone lives in Indianapolis area, I will give you the last Fram I bought, I'm not going to use it.

Purolator Cross Reference says it fits these Hondas (and lots of other cars too). I'm sure if the Purolator fits these cars, the Fram must to, what fits, fits.

If you want a better, but still OEM, filter, College Hills Honda has the 15400-PLM-A01 Filtec filter available again. It can be hard to find locally. It's not inexpensive, but it is a better filter than the A02 filter manufactured by Fram/Honeywell.

The link has a cutaway diagram of the Filtec filter.
