- Katy, Republic of Texas
This is a CarQuest Blue 84145 (Wix made) off my daughters 2012 Scion xB. 49,858 miles on car, 5058 miles on filter. Oil was Quaker State 5w-20. Look very similar to the last two CQ I have done (HERE and HERE) as well as the earlier WIX Filter (not rust on the seam, just dirt and oil, I double checked): Silicone ADV: Baseplate: Metal center tube with holes: Media: Magnets caught a lot of stuff her in the top (similar to previous filters with magnets): New fill is Mobil 1 EP and another CarQuest Blue 84145 Media is wrapped in paper towels drying out and will tear that apart and post in the next day or so. I also have another youtube video posted of it as well. Odd thing was this filter was leaking a bit. I tightened it when I installed it like I normally do, but there was some obvious leaking going on this time. I was down almost a qt this time (previous changes at same interval have been 1/2 to 3/4 qt low), but at 4000 miles, it was only maybe 1/4 qt low, so 3/4 qt in 1000 miles. Need to keep an eye on it for sure, this is the infamous 2AZ-FE that has consumption issues starting as early as 40,000 miles. Weird thing is, seems to be loosing more oil in the last 1000 miles of the interval? On a side note, my daughter did the entire oil change herself with me just supervising. only thing I did was get the floor jack out, jacked it up and put it on a stand, everything else she did. Makes a dad proud.
