    Miscrimped Wix 57712

    Up until a couple of years ago I never heard of a problem with a Wix filter. Now recently I have heard quite a few especially in the last few months. Mann and Hummel apparently has done them any justice since taking them over.

    Cummins 5.9 oil filters - Wix vs Baldwin - cut open

    I have always like Baldwin/Hastings filters. We used them for years in the trucking fleet with out issue....I think although Wix is also OK that Baldwin/Hastings always had a overall feeling of being more heavy duty

    Odd filter issue

    When I worked for a NAPA store 1984-85 we had a couple of customers blow and suck on the oil filters they were buying. I had someone once ask for a another one, as the one I originally got for them failed their test. The owner said just put that other filter back in stock. No I didn't wipe it...

    What’s your filter for beater car/ seldom driven vehicle?

    Wix, NAPA Gold, Hastings or Baldwin..With the cost of replacing an old rat so high (much less everything else) stick with quality . "Betsy" will need to be nursed through a couple more years. Engine is strong but those pot holes are killing ball joints and tie rod ends...

    Wix 57002 or OEM Made in Thailand?

    I have been using the Wix 57002 and it is just fine...I had a scare when it looked like the louvers were closed so I cut it open and it was just fine.... Unlike most of the aftermarket filters for this application Wix (like OEM) doesn't have an anti-drain back valve.. So I guess if it were me...
