I just went to the dealer and picked one up, a little more expensive but I figure the factory filter is probably decent anyway.AltaMotions2002 said:Just curious if anyone knows off the bat what the FRAM oil filter part number is on the 3.5
I changed my oil for the first time a couple of days ago - went to the dealer to get the Nissan filter. The filter ended up being the same filter as the last generation's KA24DE filter. So I figure any aftermarket filter that fits on the KA24DE will also fit the '02 Altima 2.5 ...FAST4DR said:I hear a lot of people say that Fram sucks, cause they are not made very well. A lot of there filters do not flow enough at high RPM's and go into bypass mode, where they are not filtering at all and just bypassing the oil right passed the filter cause the pressure gets too high for the media.
I am going to use the K&N filter. It is supposed to have high flow rates. My local autoparts store said it costs $15.00 and they will have to order it. I think the model is # is 1010. They do not list a K&N filter for the 2002 Altima yet but the 1010 is the same one used on the pathfinder and maxima 3.5, so it is probably the same.
