Purolator L14610 oil filter

hey I read some really good reviews on Puro oil filters and I was wondering where I can get me some? Amazon has them for $9 for 2pack but are back ordered.

Most all of the auto parts stores will have it. Just make sure to get the PureOne of the Purolator filters. It's their best one.

You might want to do a google search for theoilguy (the oil guy). He has a lot of info on oil and filters.

Someone help me out here - why wouldn't you simply buy the Honda-brand OEM oil filters? First of all, you KNOW they will be adequate, and secondly, Bernardi Honda literally gives them away - one free filter (and drain bolt washer) with each order of at least one filter.

It is beyond me why you'd want to risk your engine with any aftermarket stuff.

Actually there has been some information that indicates the opposite of honda's new choice for oil filters. There is actually a lot of discussion on these forums about it. Here is a recent post that I think was directed about a previous comment you had made on oem filters. Did you get a chance to see it?

This is one area that aftermarket would be better, and not a risk.

Honda's A02 filters are made by FRAM (see: Orange Can of Death).

Any or the Purolators would be fine to use - even the Premium Plus.

Filter element isn't as good. There is a lot of information on www.bobistheoilguy.com

Supposedly, there still is some availability of the Honda Filtech filters. I know that my dad has gotten some from the dealership for when he changes the oil on our Pilot. But I don't know if it is because the dealership still has stock, or because they are still being made.

I still have a couple thousand miles to go before my first oil change, I'm around 4200 miles right now. I'm thinking Mobil1 oil and filter. Not sure if I'm going the synthetic route or not yet.

Frams are not highly regarded on BITOG. They're *okay*, but for the money, there are much better options. I've done a lot of research on these, and the majority of folks seem to prefer Napa Gold, Wix, and Purolator. Fram filter media doesn't seem to be as good, nor is its construction, and also cardboard endcaps, another reason they should be less expensive, not more.

I personally like the Purolators. I've got two L14610's on the shelf now, and two PL14610's. That's the Premium Pluses and the Pure Ones. Advance Auto is a big carrier of Purolator filters, as is Pep Boys.

For Napa Gold/Wix, you can order them online from the several companies, and of course you can get the Napas at, well, Napa.

Also, don't count out Supertech (Wal-Mart) filters. They seem to do very well for a lot of people on BITOG, and they're really inexpensive and well-constructed.

Are you sure about this number. For most 2002 and earlier, the Purolator number was L14459. Maybe with the incredibly shrinking filter Honda uses now this is the correct number.

The L14610 (older) and L14612 is spec'd for my daughters '99 1.6L Protege and it is indeed a small filter.

I've used the Premium Plus for both vehicles without a problem for many oil changes at 5K intervals. If you catch Pepboys coupon/rebates they can be had for a dollar or less after rebate.

If you go long intervals though, you might want to step up to their higher $ Pure One or a Wix/Napa Gold or others.

I like the fact that the L14459 is roughly the same size as the original "305s" for my model year and has a spring bypass valve. And of course getting some for a penny did help sway me but, lately their deal is $1-$1.99.

So, I guess the L14459 would be considered the oversized can for the '03+ model years now.

Recently changed oil on my "05, and had used a Purolator L14610 on that fill. Much to my surprise when I crawled under my car that the filter had been leaking. The amount was not significant as I never saw oil drips in my garage, and had no noticeable drop in oil level. The effort to take off the filter was easy but tight enough to be sealed.

I am a BITOG member and lately there have been several reports of QC problems with the Prem Plus entry level of filters. Purolator was recently purchased by the Bosch Corp, and maybe they are going through some marraige pain?

I agree with several posters that the Pure One maybe a better choice. Plus they have excellent filtering properties.

Happy Motoring to all

Ahh, thanks for the prompt. I too was pissed when Honda changed filter size and went with the little ones, but was unaware that internal quality had changed. Some random observations:

1) Back in 1981 when I was in college and worked for the local K-Mart's automotive dept, the cheapest crap we sold was Purolator and it was miserable stuff.

2) I used Fram filters almost exclusively on my old 1982 Datsun pickup, which I drove to over 217K miles, and it was such a good little truck that the guy I sold it to refused to sell it back to me a year later.

3) I used mostly Motorcrap, but sometimes used Fram on my erstwhile 1997 Expedition, which I drove to 177k miles, and it used hardly any oil between changes, nor leaked a drop.

4) If you change your oil & filter as often as most of us enthusiasts (more frequently than specified by manufacturer and more often than most normal people), then my hypothesis is that oil filter quality is less critical since it never has to deal with filtering nasty old oil.

I'll study the info, and talk it over with my Honda tech. Thanks again for the detailed data!

This is pretty much my feeling as well, but I feel that there's still a need to start off with the higher quality filters. Will it make a difference...no probably not. But that's what separates the car freaks from the rest
