Default Beware Walmart FRAM Air Filters for xB

This filter simply does not seal correctly. The lip does not match up with the air box. It's close and will "work" but it's not really the same shape and size as the original oem.

I'd really like to know if anyone else has seen this problem?

I'm glad you put this out there. This is exactly why I like to stick with OEM parts!

I bought one and had the same problem, thanks for reminding me that I need to go to the dealer and get an OEM one.

FRAM in general just sucks, especially their oil filters.

I find AC Delco oil filter are very good. They rate high in testing against others.
I've used them on various other vehicles I've owned with no issues.......

A new genuine Toyota filter costs me $5.xx from a toyota dealership....No point in buying anything else...they're either cheap junk or costs more than the factory filter.

i order a 10 toyota filter from TRDSPARKS.com for total of $35

$18 for a filter is way too much.

Nothing special...Just walked in and got one. Even threw in a new drain plug gasket. Dealer I used to go to charges $7.xx and no gasket. But damn $18 for a filter is just rediculous....Maybe give another dealership a try.

uhhhhhhh this is confusing because the guy who started the article wrote oil filter in the subject line but was talking about an air filter not matching up to his air box.... Hmmmmm an oil filter isn't going to fit in your air box to begin with bro.


As for parts... get a K&N drop in filter (lasts a lifetime) and always go OEM on oil filters.

Amen. And is it just me, or is it hard as hell to snap the lid shut with the Purolator filter?

Default ...Buy 10 on E-BAY....

Click the image to open in full size.
Air and Oil filters can be had on E-BAY cheaply. 10 OEM (longer) oil filters for $30 + $10 shipping still comes out to $4 per OEM filter. Crush washers are available for $1 for ten of them. If you go to wally-world, you may get that price on a FRAM filter, the cheapest filter made, and the poorest quality.

I bought ten filters as I am doing my own oil changes. I bought 10 more because they will fit on my garage shelf and it looks cool to have filters stacked up to the celing.
Search E-BAY Motors for Scion XB oil filters..... or Scion ail filters..... or Scion Cabin Air Filters.
Hit this link for oil filters:
