Product Description

Product Description

FRAM Tough Guard Oil Filters are engineered with a blend of cellulose and synthetic media to provide an outstanding 99% dirt-trapping efficiency. The silicone anti-drainback valve is designed to hold oil in the filter to ensure safe start-up and engine protection for extended drain intervals.

Amazon.com

The FRAM Tough Guard Oil Filter is designed to keep your engine clean under the toughest and dirtiest of driving conditions. The filter utilizes a cellulose/synthetic filter media blend that contains 9% more synthetic fibers than competing filter models. Along with its anti-drainback valve, which holds a reserve of oil in the filter to help protect the engine during startups, this feature allows the Tough Guard Oil Filter to provide 6 times more engine protection than the average leading economy oil filter and maintain up to 7,500 change interval. Couple this with easy installation and the non-slip Sure Grip outer shell of the filter and you have unsurpassed engine protection necessary for the toughest conditions.

Superior Engine Protection

Advanced features built into the FRAM Tough Guard Oil Filter allow for superior engine protection, regardless of how tough the conditions. First, there is its filter media. Cellulose is the most commonly used filter material utilized in oil filters. The strength of this natural material is that it presents a random and irregular field of fibers to motor oil, trapping dirt, yet allowing oil to pass though. But as good a filtering agent as cellulose is, by itself, on average cellulose can only deliver about 80% dirt-trapping efficiency. Like many FRAM oil filters, and some competing models, the Tough Guard Oil Filter improves on the strengths of cellulose by blending it with microscopic glass synthetic fibers. Together this composite filtering media creates small windows that are able to trap the smaller dirt particles missed by other oil filters, without affecting the flow of oil. What sets the Tough Guard apart is that it uses a 9% higher level of synthetic media, providing 6 times more engine protection than the average of leading economy oil filters. This increase in dirt-trapping efficiency and its dirt-holding capacity allows it to achieve an unsurpassed 99% dirt trapping efficiency rate.

In addition to filtering media designed to protect engines while they run, the FRAM Tough Guard Oil Filter also works to protect your engine when the your car is idle via its built-in silicone anti-drainback valve. Designed to hold a reserve of oil in the filter, this features helps protect the engine during startups by allowing the engine access clean, filtered oil at a time when its components may be lacking it, and need it most.

Quick and Easy Installation with "Sure Grip"

The FRAM Tough Guard Oil Filter utilizes the FRAM exclusive no-slip Sure Grip feature. This textured application to the top of the filter makes it much easier to grip during installation and removal - even with oily hands. Steps for installation of the FRAM Tough Guard Oil Filter are simple and include:

  • Unscrew the old oil filter and clean mounting base.
  • Apply film of clean oil to filter gasket. Do not use grease.
  • Screw new filter on until gasket reaches base. Then tighten according to instructions on filter using tightening guide markers.
  • Add oil to "full" on dipstick. Idle engine for five minutes and check for leaks.

Warranty

FRAM filters are warranted against defects in design, materials and workmanship. New vehicle warranties remain in effect when FRAM filters are installed according to directions on FRAM filter packaging and replaced at least as often as vehicle manufacturer's recommended change intervals.

About FRAM

Today FRAM is known as America's number one oil filter brand, and the FRAM team continues to manufacture and market a variety of quality oil, air and fuel filters, as well as many automotive accessories such as PCV valves, crankcase filters and transmission modulators.

1. VS LEADING ECONOMY FILTERS' AVERAGE. FRAM Engine Protection ratings are based on multiplying an oil filter's dirt-trapping efficiency by its dirt-holding capacity.
2. Honeywell testing of filter efficiency and capacity of models equivalent to PH8A, 3387A and 6607 under ISO 4548-12 for particles > 20 microns. 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.
3. Honeywell testing of filter efficiency (using FRAM XG3387A and XG8A average) and dirt holding capacity (using XG8A average only) and their leading economy filter equivalents under ISO 4548-12 for particles > 20 microns.
4. Follow recommended change intervals as noted in your vehicle's owner's manual. 10,000-mile change interval under normal driving conditions using fully synthetic motor oil.

* Note: All FRAM filters are compatible with all the oil types listed.

It's a Fram Oil Filter. It's good. It lasts. It protects your engine from debris in the oil. Do you really need a review?

This filter is a bigger filter for those owners of Dodge trucks who want a bigger oil filter than the tiny one the factory puts on the 5.7 Liter Hemi. I like this filter's grip, ease of application, and its filtering characteristics. I highly recommed the upgrade to a bit more oil filtering capabilities than the tiny factory filter.

Most of the times you cannt find these stocked in the local stores and if they are they are very expensive. Always used Fram filters and never had a problem with them.
