Its here in Brazil quite difficult to find any parts for jeeps and the prizes are sky high. Don´t know the reason why the dealer doesn´t have any filter at the moment and ordering myself in the US will take at least 6 weeks to arrive. My normal MOPAR parts supplier told me that he also can´t get his hands on the original filters
. An other company can get me a filter set from Allomatic or SPX-Filtran, which brands don´t ring me a bell.
When i did my last fluid/filter change, i used non MOPAR filters from a brand i don´t know, but in less then a year later the problem started that the fluid was draining back to the sump after being parked for many hours and after startup late gear engagement occured. This is probably the infamous checkvalve inside the spin-on oilcooler return filter which doesn´t close properly, causing the drainback.
Has anybody experience with filters from Allomatic or SPX-Filtran?
