70BIRD Gettin' there
I use castrol 5w30 with an AC Delco filter and change it religiously every 2,500 / 3000 miles , The main problem with the FRAM filters was that they lacked the anti-drainback valve ( which leaves oil on the filter so that you don`t start your car dry ), I found out because on my thunderbird I always use MOTORCRAFT filters but one time I had to use a FRAM and noticed the car was knocking after starting it up and after being parked for over a week , when I took it to my mechanic right away He found the problem...the FRAM filter , I think the new expensive FRAM filters now have the anti-drainback valve
Fly low !
