Default purolator one vs napa gold oil filters

Here are reviews by the same guy of both filters most often cites as good on this forum.



Napa Gold

Purolator One

They both have the silicone drain back prevention. The purolator one appears to fit more snug though. For that reason I am considering switching from the napa gold I have always used to the purolator one (which looks to be sold at walmart).


I looked through my receipts going back years and at one point long ago I did use a fram oil filter. The date seemed to be around the time my engine (timing or valve) ticking was really bad so maybe that was the culprit.

Fit more snug?



Grab a few of the Napa filters during their $5 filter sale and don't look back!

You can't go wrong with either. #1361 is the filter you need.

Well, the purolator looks like it goes up further into the body because he picks it up and it's attached and he has to pull it apart. It also looks thicker.

I've ran the purolator one many times. I have no complaints on quality or the way the truck ran.

I used a Napa Gold one time on my former Sentra and the engine would tick at startup, replaced it with the Pure One and the ticking went away.


On my Frontier (2017) I use OEM now as they are cheaper than the Pure One's and the dealer gives the drain plug washer for free.

Purolator, Napa, Fram, k&n, Mobil, what are these filters you speak of? I only use genuine Nissan made in Japan filters and my engine purrs. No noise ever at anytime. Is it because of the filters? Idk. I will never know either. They are the only filters this truck will see as long as I own it. I buy them by the case from Tacoma Nissan. They are on eBay, but if you call them they will give better pricking. Comes out to about 4.50 each including crush rings. Truly, you can't go wrong. You are getting the filter the engine was designed to run with.

Fuck me, it's just a filter. This isn't rocket science. All this gobbledegook about oil and filters is enough to make me fly into wuhan for a holiday.

Go for it dude. You can probably get cheap tickets.
