    Default A question on oil filters

    Not going to discuss brands, that would be like discussing which oil would be the best. LOL
    Are there specific filters designed for the particulates in diesel engines ?
    Or, just use any good brand of filter like the WIX ?

    Thank You very much. Yes, NAPA are WIX filters. That is what I normally use is the NAPA Gold.
    I just did`nt know if there was a company making filters specifically for diesel engines.
    The DOT used whatever filters came in on the cheapest bid.
    The one I installed is a Mobil one, no parts stores were open and I needed it, needed it now. LOL Hadda go to wally world for it. LOL
