Wanting to buy a Fram oil filter what's the number for this car

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Jessica Howe, Automotive Expert & Coach at


Based on the information you gave me, there are many results for Fram Oil filters. You can view them on their website listed below. Find out if your engine is an OHV (overhead valve) or a DOHC (double overhead camshaft). The difference in valve type will warrant a different oil filter. Your model and engine came with either or.

That being said, if you need help narrowing down which filter to purchase, you want to look for one that is similar is size to the one that is currently on your vehicle. Secondly, if your vehicle has high-mileage, then you may want to consider using a high-mileage oil filter.
