Best Oil Filter For My 3.7L

Just wondering what you guys recommend for an oil filter.. I just bought 5qt's of Mobil 1 5W30 Extended Performance oil.. By the looks of it, the manual has the wrong part # oil filter in it..

Thanks for the link.. I normally use WIX filters so I guess they will be fine for my 3.7L as well..

Just watched this video, WOW, I wouldn't put a Fram on my lawn mower..

Yup, I have allways used the WIX filters on anything I had that was gas. I just got rid of a diesel Ford truck that had to have Motorcraft filters due to a valve at the bottom of the oil filter housing.. Glad that junkbox is gone..

Send a message via AIM to atljar
Wix for a standard filter (Napa Gold), or mobile 1/KN if you are going to run longer intervals. They both have a synthetic media inside

best oil filter

in my opinion if you want the best oil filter go with the mopar brand. you can pick them up at the dealer,most auto parts stores or wal-mart for like 6bucks. not sure about the 3.7 but my 4.7 takes part# Mo90.

It was easier just to pickup the WIX #51516 for this change.. I do like the quality of the WIX filters and allways have.. I posted just to make sure there wasn't one that was no good for the 3.7L engine.. I like the bypass part of the WIX, I'll go Mopar or WIX in the future I guess.. I'm just glad I got the Mobil 1 Extented Performance 5W30 in it.. It had a POS carquest filter on it and it was barley even screwed on and the oil looked like crap and it only had 900 miles on it..

Thanks for all the input..
