purolator fuel filter

I bought one and while tightening the nut on to hold it in place it just sheared off. I didn't put any uneccessary force into it at all. My theory is...it is just a cheep stud and when they brazed it on the metal became softer then it should be. My solution to a dangling fuel filter was to use a cold chisel and knock off the remains of the stud and put a real bolt with a lock washer through it. I guess thats what I get for not buying a real motorcraft part.

I put a Purolator fuel filter on my truck and didn't have any problems...but I have had problems with other Purolator parts. I put a Purolator air filter in and the gasket was too thin and did not seal the filter box.

Hard to find motorcraft

Yes, its getting hard to find "quality " parts anymore. I work in a parts store, so I can tell you why. todays peolpe just dont want to spend money on quality. They just want cheap. People always come in and say give me the cheapest thing you got, wheater its oil filters soark plugs. I started a joke at work that I bet we could run the old oil people bring through a coffee filter and rebottle it and some would buy it for 50 cents or so, DIDnt mean to hijack your thread

I don't mind this thread being hijacked. But since you brought up oil.......regular oil is all the same. My girlfriends dad worked in a place bottling it once he said the different colored bottles would come down the line and the same nozzle would fill it up. They had a thing on the news about it not too long ago. And if you doubt me just look at the bottle. As long as it passes the same standards your just buying a name.
