Which brand of filter do you want the part number for? (Honda, Fram, AC Delco, etc.) If you're going with an aftermarket filter most stores typically have books that you can look that information up in. If you're getting a Honda filter you can just go to the dealer and tell them the year and model of your car, they'll give you what you need.

i've heard some horror stories about frams but i have no personal experience with them. i guess i shouldn't knock it until i try it. i guess i'll never knock it.

I agree gensavestheday, but just how do you know it is working just fine? I mean, it's not like other things where you can tell, it's just an oil filter. How much are the Honda oil filters, if they aren't too much I will use them next time I change my oil. I was always led to believe that Fram was one of the best...

Oscar Jackson at Jackson Racing did a write up on oil filters awhile ago. He said the OEM Honda oil filters have a pressure release valve so that it keeps the oil flowing through the filter when it's cold. Most aftermarket filters don't have that valve and will clog up with the thicker oil before warming up, robbing the engine of needed oil and increasing wear. He's been building and racing Hondas for a long time so I can only assume it was correct. I use Honda filters from now on. I just wish they put on that grippy end like Fram did so it wouldn't be so damn hard to unscrew.

Bosch makes the K&N, Mobil 1 and a few of the other high end oil filters. They're top quality and not all that expensive. By the way, I'd probably avoid Frams.
Probably can't go wrong with the Honda Blues...

$8 for a Fram oil filter. Dude where do you shop? The moon? Most top end filters (Pure one, Castrol Max Pro Plus) run about $5

I paid $4.78 for OEM filters, when I bought a case at the dealership. I believe normal retail is about $6.

Yeah it was around $5 or so from what I remember. I don't even look at how much stuff for my car costs anymore. I just fork over the dough, then I can lead myself to believe I'm really not spending much on my car.

Lol. Next oil change I'm heading to the dealership. It's worth a try . I thought they'd be like 15-20 bucks or something.

If you used a large pair of channel lock pliers you wouldn't have to worry about having that grippy end.
