Re: Oil filter magnets

They won't hurt anything -- other than your wallet. You can also use generic rare earth magnets, hard drive magnets, etc.

Re: Oil filter magnets

Sure -- search for other threads on BITOG:

what Magnet for oil filter | Oil Filters | Bob Is The Oil Guy

There are typically magnets in tranny pans, you can get magnetic oil-drain plugs, etc. They work for trapping metallic particles. You're not going to gain 15HP. I didn't see the watch the video -- to see their claims?

I dunno about the goofy idea of putting the magnet on your oil filter, but oil magnets have been around longer than even old geezers like me. Way back when, they were oil drain plugs with a protruding magnet. Some vehicles even came with the things.

I'd think having the magnet in the oil pan would work better, as the oil would presumably be moving slower there than it would thru a filter, so there would be less
chance of the moving oil re-distributing ferrous metals back into circulation. Plus, if it really pulled much metal, I'd be worried about it interfering with the filter.

They only work for ferrous metals, and I don't recall ever seeing more than a tiny little bit of metal on one in a hopped up 427.

I suppose it would be possible to get aluminum particles out of your oil with a repulsion coil type technology.

At least they didn't put it in the throttle body. And it doesn't appear to be made from pressed snake bodies.

Re: Oil filter magnets

Sounds almost as promising as bifurcating venturies used on exhaust manifolds and headers back in the late 70's. If you need magnets on your oil filter you have serious engine issues. If you have any concerns drop the bucks on having your oil and other fluids analyzed not on some rip off technology.

Now I have a deal for the OP and anyone else with some cash burning a hole in their wallets. You can buy the 14th St Bridge crossing over DC to VA and the Memorial Bridge for a special low price and I throw in the Key Bridge for free.
Tens of thousands of commuters use these three bridges to get into and out DC and back into the Commonwealth of Virginny each day. Best part is the deed of sale allows you to collect tolls and you keep all the money. Yes you can buy 2 bridges and get one free and collect tolls. Call now operators are standing by!!!!

I got an old Magnetron magnet at home. It might pull a few bits of steel right thru your engine block, but it should be able to remove the teensy amount of ferrous metals that might leave particles in your oil...

Okay I may be stupid but I aint that stupid to try to sell the GWU bridge. The gov of NJ will have some of his friends take me fishing and i be the chum. I aint afraid of the mayor of DC or that carpetbagging scumbag friend of Bill the gov of VA so I sell bridges close to home.. You want to sell bridges in Jersey be my quest. Traffic cones are for autox not for traffic control anyway.

Well there's finally someone in here older than me even if it's only by 4 months.
