Oil filter

I know the recommended oil filter is Mototcraft or Racor. But I was curious if anyone is running Wix. If so, what are your thoughts?

Have you seen the Racor filter video comparison? Some Fram's are actually Racor, but idk about the WIX yet

Wix is closest if not exactly same.

At one point if not now the same company makes them.

This is not fact. This is mechanic hearsay only. Please don't chastise me on this.

I did my first oil change today, along with fuel filters as well (I just bought the truck 5k miles ago and I think they were done by the dealer but now at least I know for sure).

I picked the filters at one of the local Ford dealerships, $66 for the oil filter alone, does that sound right? The Amsoil filter is only $22.

For 15 quarts of Motorcraft oil they wanted $135.00, that's $9 a court! I can get Amsoil for $7.25 a court so I just got the filters from them and picked up 5-w40 diesel Amsoil.

At those prices it must be $300 to have them change the oil, that's insane.

So if they only did it for what materials would cost you, how do employees get paid?

Eh, not sure what your getting at here, all I wanted was oil and filters at a decent price and I asked if that is what other dealers are charging, thanks for your input though.

check with Sunriseford a site vender. Thats where I got my filters. I did take my truck in for a oil change but not with synthetic and it was $132. I'm doing the next one with synthetic. by the way the oil filter is $14.75 for my truck.
