Exclamation Aftermarket Oil Filter Question

Hi guys. i'm doing oil change this week. I wonder can i use aftermarket oil filter instead OEM. I heard they are much better than the OEM. Is it true? I think of Fram, K&N, etc... Thank guys.

Do a little web search on oil filter comparison: Start here,, make your own conclusions,,,

Tests are the only way to prove anything,,, emotions can get envolved,,, then it's just hear say,,,

The OEM filter is not that bad, but for what the dealer charges, there are better and cheaper options out there. I personally do not like the Fram orange can, it is not complete junk like some say, but for what the Fram costs, a basic Purolator is cheaper and better made.

My choices in no particular order: Purolator PureOne, Hastings, WIX, Amsoil EaO, K&N and Mann/Mahle.

Question

I have always used aftermarket and changed my own oil for the past 25 years. However, this car I am going to have the dealer do it, since I have lifetime oil and filter changes.

There is nothing wrong with OEM filter and oil is it?

Always use the OEM parts when your car is still under warranty. To get your car under warranty all the time, you have to use their parts and use their service.

IF anything fails, it's your responsiblity and liability for not using Honda OEM parts.

You can use any parts you want when the warranty period is expired.

This is the dumbest thing I read all week.

There is 0 issues with anything NON OEM as long as you show receipts and its confirmed that those parts are made for the specific car.

Again what you said is utter trash, you should not post such false information.

Most of the aftermarket oil filters are good to very good. The only bad ones are the the cheap no name filters that most quicky lube places use. Agree with all the tips above.

Maybe HikaruAccord doesn't live in U.S. where we have the Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act.

Wix and Purolator Pure One are good for the price.

Honda filters are great actually, but again dealer prices dictate my purchases for Mobil 1 has the toughest build quality, highest flow and smallest partical filtration, and is one of the few if any that makes a synthetic filter.

Then you have K&N that is prolly the best considaring it is expensive.

If you're in the U.S., Purolator has a rebate available right now.


Picked up a few PureONE's a couple weeks back. $6.49 each (at Pepboys) - $3 rebate = $3.49 for an awesome filter. That's a very hard deal to beat IMO.
