Mine is metal (2012)... I put 4 quarts in and run it a little high with no foaming issues. On the first oil change I drilled the drain plug and stuck in a really strong neodymium magnet to catch the iron powder.

Me too. I dont know whats up with FRAM but I dont see cars on the side of the road with blown engines from using a FRAM filter....

...or car manufacturers warning against using them....

Thanks for the write-up, this should be a sticky or at least in the DIY compilation.

Wow, this post has been around since 2008. :)

Nothing wrong with Fram except the filter ends inside is made of cardboard, so that might fail, if it does.

I've been sticking with OEM filters as they are cheaper than Fram anyways. But it did happen when I did not have time to get to the dealer, so I just grab a Fram from Walmart.

Else, I've used Amsoil EK filters.

I just changed my own oil yesterday after wasting 1.5 hours of my life waiting for a service APPOINTMENT, then telling me they're extremely backed up (Could've gave me a heads up). I went home, jacked it up and changed my own oil/filter in 35 mins. Much easier to DIY rather than drive to a shop then wait. This car is easily accessible for oil changes. I was even able to explain step by step to my eldest daughter as she watched me. I told her this may be her car one day so pay attention. lol
