Hey figured I'd add my name to the list of people that noticed the same thing during an oil change, today. Going for the machine screw trick myself, hopefully at some point a recall is issued, really a b.s. design. Anyway subscribed to this thread in hopes of eventually seeing a permanent fix.

What about using the new Napa Gold oil filter part nr 7526? I has an integrated oil bypass valve that will do the same thing as the machine screw trick. http://www.nfhconnect.com/assets/Tec...ct-Updates.pdf

I have maxcare from Jeep and was curious if anyone knows if (when this happens) maxcare covers this repair.

Also, do you have a picture of the screw design in place?

Thanks.

I had the same exact thing happen to me when changing my oil filter.

I don't have a picture yet but the next time I check the filter I will take one. However, the post by abflyer showing the new Napa filter may the the solution to our problems. I am going to check it out. Thanks for that post. I have a Napa store just down the street and I am headed there now to pick up that filter.

So I went to the Napa Store and the 7526 part oil filter still is the same as the old one. Either that is not the right part number or they haven't cycled through the old inventory yet. In the article that your link was to ... I couldn't determine if the either the 7526 or the 7674 had the by-pass valve or did they both have it. Anyway, I will keep following up with Napa in the future. If they do come out with the by-pass built in, that would solve the problem. Looks like you still would use the original spring with this new filter.

Unhappy Re: Oil Filter Assembly - Plastic parts broken (2011 GC 3.6L)

Well this looks like it's a big problem for a lot of us. Talked to a buddy who works the parts counter at a Jeep dealership and he knew the replacement part number off the top of his head. After my blood pressure came down into the life sustaining range I found this post and I'm wondering how the various fixes have been working out. I too, was thinking the valve poppet could be reused without the lower (broken off) portion. The thing that scares me is the possibility of it not returning to the right position if it got cocked. This would unknowingly allow unfiltered oil to circulate. This potential would drive me insane and make check it way too often. The screw idea started to look good, but I was thinking about something a little better without having to machine something. I measured up the valve and then found these brass rivets at McMaster-Carr. The head diameter is exactly the same as the valve. The ID of spring is the same size as the OD of the shaft of the rivet, so that may need to have a few .001's removed. As the spring compresses, the ID should increase, possibly making this a drop in part. Still not convinced that the valve will guide itself correctly without the larger diameter of the cage portion of the original plastic part. Gonna cut the end off a filter to get a closer look. Anyone have any comments? Feel free to blow holes in my logic, I ordered a bag of these rivets today.

Re: Oil Filter Assembly - Plastic parts broken (2011 GC 3.6L)

A very helpful thread. So the first time I changed the oil on my used 2013 3.6 i saw this: I think I am missing something, right?

Re: Oil Filter Assembly - Plastic parts broken (2011 GC 3.6L)

Yes, you are missing the plastic part that goes on top of the spring. That is the part that breaks and goes flying off ... usually with the spring with it. Napa now makes a filter with the by-pass valve built in. I just picked one up but haven't installed it yet. You will need to use your existing spring with this new filter. I am not sure yet, but I still may used the machine screw I put in the top of the spring. This may help with the spring alignment into the bypass valve in the Napa filter. I will post more when I install the new filter. I still have about 2000 miles to go before the next filter change.

Re: Oil Filter Assembly - Plastic parts broken (2011 GC 3.6L)

Thanks Acehiggy. When I changed the oil, I could tell something was wrong. Note, I used a Wix 57526 filter. Google it and take a look. It looks like it has a bypass valve built in as well. Is that similar to the Napa you plan on using? Do I still need the spring if I use this filter? Also, I note when I start my Jeep it sounds like a lack of oil for the first 1-2 second (you know, like it sounds when you change the oil and start it the first time). Does your sound the same? Thanks.
