STP oil filter

Anybody have any experience with the STP oil filters for their eco diesel? How do they look? I started changing my oil and got to lookin at my new Mahle oil filter that Amazon sent me, and its the wrong filter. That o ring sits way high. See photo. Didnt want to pay $63 at dealer so i sniffed around locally and found the STP at Autozone for 10 bucks. ThanksImageUploadedByJeepGarage1470507433.862809.jpg

Re: STP oil filter

The filter O ring sitting high isn't an issue for our VM 3.0 but it is for the EcoRam.
Most paper filters don't really do much but keep hunks out and
Seldom filter below 20
Microns so most any will do.
I am using a no name Korean brand and will report it use here in about 3500 miles when I change oil. I intend to cut the filter open and take pocs...

Re: STP oil filter

Bigger question is who's making the STP filter?

Re: STP oil filter

Oh wow, thx for reply. I almost went to dealer, so thx for saving me $63! . thought i read where the o ring position was critical on these. I guess it was the Ram i read about. Well anyway, i just came home from Autozone and the STP filter they show for this vehicle doesnt look anything like the correct one, so dont go chasin after that. I should have known better with that place. Thx again.

The o ring thing is only an issue for the RAM. They have a drain back feature in their oil filter housing that the Jeep Ecodiesels don't have.

No, and no actually Our EcoDiesels have the drainback valve. The top plastic housing pushes against a piece of plastic and a spring. With the oil filter removed, you can feel it with your finger. So long as your oil filter is clipped into the cap, and the cap is torqued down properly, the placement of the o-ring doesn't change the plumbing, and the drainback valve will function.

I just posted some pictures of my STP filter over here: STP Oil Filter Photos, Q&A
