About oil filters...
I like the Sure Filter Brand. They filter a lot better than common filters because they trap twice as much, and because the safety valve in them is better. There is almost twice as much filter material volume so they can filter for many more thousands of miles.
Even good filters cannot clean your motor - just the oil.
What about your motor's cleanliness?
I think cleaning the actual parts of your engine, and smoothing their wear roughen surfaces is just as important.
This picture of a greasy kitchen fire is similar to what your pistons, rings, valves, combustion area, and exhaust look like in your engine after a few years. Can't be good!
