Alright guys, still kinda new to this site but I love my Xterra and want to know what you guys like to use for your Oil Filters! Oh and what oil do you use?
You'll get a lot of different answers and fan boy replies. Really, there is lots of good stuff out there nowadays.
Personally, I run Mobil 1 and a Fram Ultra Synthetic filter and change both every 5,000mi.
I use the Purolator PureONE oil filter and stick with either Valvoline or Mobil 1 full synthetic 5w-30. I use to use FRAM until I saw what the inside of those things looked like. Never again.
Do some research. The old orange can Frams were long discussed as crappy, but that is light years difference from the new synthetic Xtended Guard now renamed Ultra Synthetic. These are often ranked considerably better than Purolator PureONE and Mobil 1 filters. Spend some time googleing around or read up on the many informative threads on Bob Is The Oil Guy (BITOG). One of our exact filter, XG7317 is cut open and discussed in this thread:2x this.
Surprised no one uses the Nissan oil filters? That's the only thing ever screwed onto my engine.
