Question Transmission filter question

I work for O'Reilly's, so I get a discount on my parts.

Anyone ever use their transmission filters? Opinions?

Their brand is called "Power Torque".

Thanx

NOBODY ever tells a story where they look bad !!!

I've never used O'Reilley's brand, just cause we don't have any around here, but I have used advance auto's brand, which is probably similar in quality, and I have never had any issues with it, other than that you should re-use the factory gasket cause the one they give you in those kits is cheap junk and will leak. In the transmission, the filter is on the suction side, so there is no chance of it rupturing like a cheap oil filter.

I imagine that the filter is either made by Wix or Purolator. Our transmission oil filters are made by Purolator. I often tell my customers to reuse their transmission oil pan gaskets if it is the rubber bonded metal gaskets, like the original Ford gaskets. I get a lot of weird looks. lol

yeah, im actually running the powertourqe brand in a lot of my vehicles including my bird since i also work at Oreilly.

there pretty decent, but like everyone says, DONT use the rubber gaskets, our pop metal pans will deform and leak like crasy with them...

if your old gasket isnt dry, torn, or cracked anywhere, it will seal far better then any aftermarket gasket ever will.

and if it is damaged, your local ford dealer should have a new one in stock since their were so many 4r70w's produced. i know mine had 3 of them, since mine got thrown away after being left in the parts washer overnight >.>

Hey Tweety Bird, O'Reilley's does carry the Motorcraft. Not all stores stock them. Got mine next day. Cork gaskets.

I need to apologize. I wasn't paying enough attention. I have the AOD trans, not like yours.
