FRAM® Oil Filters

What is Engine Protection? FRAM Engine Protection ratings are a ratio based on multiplying an oil filters dirt-trapping efficiency by its dirt-holding capacity and dividing the result with the same multiplication of another filter. The FRAM Engine Protection rating increases for filters that allow fewer particles to pass through it and when the filter contaminant holding capacity is higher. Engine Protection is the FRAM measure of a filter’s ability to not just trap dirt but hold it for the life of the filter.

  • FRAM® Extra Guard® Oil Filter with the SureGrip® Feature

    Advanced Engine Protection

    • Uses cellulose and synthetic glass fiber blended media to provide 3X MORE engine protection than the average of leading economy oil filters1
    • 95% Dirt Trapping Efficiency2
    1.  Unscrew oil filter and clean mounting base. (illus. 1)
    2.  Apply film of clean oil to filter gasket. Do not use grease. (illus. 2)
    3.  Screw new filter on until gasket reaches base. Then tighten according to instructions on filter using tightening guide markers. (illus. 3)
    4.  Add oil to "full" on dipstick. Idle engine for five minutes and check for leaks.

    Advanced Oil Filter Media Gives The FRAM Advantage

    With an ideal balance of dirt-trapping efficiency and dirt-holding capacity, every FRAM oil filter uses a special blend of fibers and resin providing a proprietary filter media that delivers excellent engine protection.

    • The most commonly used filter media is cellulose, which is a natural material that presents a random and irregular field of fibers to the oil. By itself, it can only deliver about 80% dirt-trapping efficiency.
    • By adding microscopic synthetic fibers, small windows are created that trap the smaller dirt particles without affecting the flow of oil. Blending synthetic fibers with cellulose increases a filter’s dirt-trapping efficiency and its dirt-holding capacity for higher levels of engine protection and longer filter life.
