Mopar filter removed from a Hemi Ram, mileage unknown although 3% was left on OLM. 110k on the truck. Didn't see any tears; not wavy really either, looked okay. Wix filter went back on. [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

Looks good, I will use a Mopar filter on my '16 Ram Hemi when Rockauto has a deal on them. Always wondered what they looked like. I have been running Wix lately but, because of your post, I have no worries getting Mopars next time.

Have one on standby. Have a Wix on my 2019 Ram 5.7 Hemi. Started having some ticking at startup at 2400 mi on last PP oil change. Guess the wix adbv is not cutting it on this filter.

As the filter is mounted upside down on the engine, I doubt the adbv plays any part in the startup noise you hear.

[Bang Head] THE ADB VALVE PREVENTS THE OIL ON THE DIRTY SIDE OF THE FILTER ELEMENT FROM DRAINING BACK INTO THE ENGINE. [Bang Head] NO MATTER WHAT ORIENTATION IT IS IN [Bang Head] IF THE OIL DRAINS BACK INTO THE FILTER, FROM ANY POINT AFTER THE FILTER THE ADB VALVE PREVENTS IT FROM BACKWASHING THE FILTER INTO THE SUMP.

Plus the Mopar filters have a nitrile ADBV compared to the Wix's superior silicone valve.

What do you mean by "upside down"? Filter base up or base down? There's no formal definition of the "upside" of an oil filter. grin2

Sometimes it has start up tick, most times not. Leads me to believe oil from upper engine was seeping back past adbv to oilpan at times.

Sometimes it does, most times not? Thats the awesomeness of owning Hemi engines. They do that at dealers with 2 miles or less on the odo. Even the dealer will say "its supposed to sound like that, I can go show you dozens of 2020s new on the lot that do the same thing!" Ive used everything from Schaeffers to cheap dino conventional. Filters from the Fram ultra to the cheapest ecore. Ambient temps from 115f to 25f. Its gonna sound like that regardless if you put a 9$ fram or a 1$ champ on it.

Its a 2019 classic big horn. Bought it at 24,500 and no tic until 35,300 basically. About 3400 on oil change and Wix 57060 when it started loud for 3-4 starts and then moderately a couple times since.

Even fillers mounted vertical with the base up can cause oil above the filter (in the galleries) to leak down. It's a continuing misconception that filters mounted base up don't need an ADBV.

Some WIX filters have been reported lately of having a bad ADBV. Swap out just the filter and see if the start-up noise goes away or not.

Have a 339 to replace it with, thinking about using the 899 if i can get it in from the front to install. I dont like little filters.
