Re: Oil Filters and hoses

  Perhaps that radiator hose blew off during the hot-soak after you shut
  the car off that night.

  On the oil filters, I tried running some "OEM Import" brand filters on
  the '84 4000Q and '87 5000QTW and found absolutely *NO*
  improvement in lifter noise Vs the Fram sans drain-back filter.

  What gives? Anyone ever confim that anti-drain back valved
  filters actually reduce lifter noise on start-up Vs no valve filters,
  or is this effect just a theory?
