    Not an endorsement for Staples but I bought two refurb desktops from them running windows 7 a couple of years ago (they may all be Win 10 now) that cost me a grand total of $250, that have been just...

    Every form of energy has a price.
    The dream of electric power is becoming more prevalent with today's technological and power hungry consumers.

    My last '97 F150 4.6 L engine using chain driven over head cams had over 450,000 miles on it when I sold it two years ago, I still see it on the road now and then.
    Regular oil changes and some...

    Granted the red silicone ones are the best, especially in long drain interval high heat applications.
    However 95% of the time I simply don't have an issue even with the even the cheaper types if the...

    And if it's a programming error it's either orientation day or someone needs to re-think their vocation.:rolleyes:

    This just does not happen. The minute particles embedded within the filter's media are held there very tightly. If you have chunks big enough to fall off you also have big problems.

    The oil filter on horizontally mounted applications, if you are using the correct one for that application, will have an anti-drainback valve incorporated within.
    Look up the approved filter for...

    If you've got sludge you have bigger problems than filter type or design.

    It should be noted that the new style of canister types of oil filter only drain oil to the sump when the canister is removed, not every time the engine is shut off. Leave the drain plug out until...

    If it has a carburetor and a vented fuel tank it is old enough to be affected.
    Small engine manufacturers still loath E10 but are forced to accept it, E15 causes convulsions in the board rooms.:)
