filters have a full metal base plate for superior strength at the
double seal. They also feature a silicone anti-drainback valve that
stays flexible in extreme temperatures. This improves oil flow and
keeps oil in the filter to prevent dry starts.
filters use an up-front by-pass valve. This design is superior to
top-mounted valves because it helps to keep oil from washing past
dirty media and entering the engine. The glass-enhanced media in WIX
oil filters offers greater efficiency, capturing more 10 to 12
micron sized particles than other cellulose/synthetic blend medias.
They also have a coil steel spring to ensure internal filter parts
are sealed properly.
element air filters have a linear path through the filter for low
airflow restriction, a specially formulated adhesive to form WIX's
exclusive pocket pleat for the filter media and a soft sealing
urethane gasket molded in place on the filter element.
filters are constructed of mesh screen on the inside wall diameter
for element strength and media protection from backfire. Each round
filter is manufactured with heat-resistant plastisol with specially
designed crush seals on the top and bottom walls and adhesive seal
joining the media ends. Additional Filtration Products AMSOIL offers
WIX filtration products for auto/light truck and racing
applications. This includes not only standard air and oil filters,
but fuel, transmission, cabin air and filters specially designed for
