What's the worst that could happen? Oil drips out onto the ground? Or something worse?
Not sure about other cars but I have been using 3614 on my Suzuki Grand Vitara quite a few times and had no issues so far. Actually I had my own doubt when the mechanic first used it to replace my standard 2951 but after some online search it seems legit. They are both interchangeable with M1-102 and share the same Bypass Valve PSI.

I never had a problem with Fram. Been using em for the past decade and they do their job. I am now using em on my motorcycle. Its convenient because they're so easy to find.

Interesting, I'll have to do some more research into this as well. Thanks for the tips.

Eating crow, Fram oil filters, and my visit to Fram's R&D facility in Dayton Ohio

The subject of oil filters, like conventional vs. synthetic oil, is an emotional subject for many. I have to admit that over the past 10-15 years, I was caught up in the oil filter debates and formed some very strong opinions… particularly about Fram’s oil filters. Based on what I had seen posted on the Internet, I became a fairly vocal anti-Fram oil filter type individual.

Personally, I had settled on AC-Delco and Purolator’s oil filters and they are what I had been running in all my vehicles. I was comfortable for many years with my opinion that AC-Delco, Purolator, Wix, etc. oil filters were good and that Fram was bad.

Much to my personal embarrassment, I recently learned that I have been wrong about Fram’s oil filters .......................................
That is from 2003, alot could have changed in 17 years.

For someone asking about using a different size filter and whats the worst that can happen. As long as its the same thread and the actually filter is just larger then its perfectly fine.
In my truck i use a larger filter as its better and same price. So as long as the thread is the exact same and its a larger filter capacity its great. Dont used a shorter filter.

Make sure you open these up at the store. Alot of people love swapping the synthetic filters into the cheaper extra guard boxes.

The myth that Fram = bad is even older.

Yes. I do this all the time when purchasing Toughguard oil filters, check to make sure it's the right filter in the box.

I only used the Fram Extra Guard on my 1986 Mustang GT for 23 years. Never had a single issue and changed the 10W-30 conventional oil every 8000 kms. The engine was still good and never burnt a drop of oil when I sold the car with just a few kms short of 300K.

Scarborough Town Centre location has the Ultra Guard Filters for synthetic on clearance. Found what looked to be the very last one for my Camry for $5 Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

Really need a Honda size 7317 but that was empty.

They also had Penzoil Platinum 0w-20 grade but it scanned at $49.99. Scouring the local Walmart’s for this...
