Thanks for the web site info! I've been checking all over the Detroit area for the Ultraguard Gold filter and the best price I could find was eleven dolllars and change!
Zippy :z: :z: (loves a bargain) :cheers:
When you actually try to buy an oil plug you learn that this site only sells them 5 to the package and filters six to the box. So unless you have 4 friends who also need plugs ......Moreover, the minimum shipping charge is $9.95 for the first item. Not a bargain after all.

False informatin -- the 2002s do NOT have a magnetic drain plug. I just changed by oil last weekend and NO magnetic plug from the factory.BrianK said:Thanks for mentioning the drain plug. I'd read they were putting them in 2002's from the factory, so I didn't get one.
Yup, had to shove a screw driver through my stock one to get it out. No more problems tho.gmblack3 said:The Target here sells Mobil 1 for $3 a qt. Its been at that price for about a year. I better go stockup again before they figure out that everyone else sells it for $4-4.50 a qt.
Don't forget if you are changing your oil for the first time, the factory filter was put on by Superman himself. The Ultragurd filter filter is a different size than the standard AC filter.
So if you buy the Ultragurd filter and a filter socket for it, that socket will not fit the stock filter and you will distroy the stock filter trying to get it off.
Ask me how I know
