STP Oil Filter Photos, Q&A

I've never been 100% comfortable using the eBay Korean oil filters in my engine. I took some pictures and did a review about a year ago (Korean Oil Filter Photos, Q&A) In recent months, I saw an STP brand filter became available at my local auto parts store for $17.99. It's been in the SUV for a few weeks now, so now I'm reporting back. The biggest difference is the placement of the oil outlet gasket. These pictures are comparing the STP with the Korean filter. It's placed higher, almost like the original MOPAR filter I took out at the first oil change. The STP filter element is also more orange in color.

The last picture is a bonus- the volume of crud that was collected by the PCV catch can in 5k miles

If folks have questions, I'd be happy to answer

Re: STP Oil Filter Photos, Q&A

I am 6000 miles into the Korean filter and will remove it at 10K and cut the filter over and see what is in the pleating.
I examined the Korean filter with the MOPAR one and could see very little difference. If I can get any good filter for less than 20 bucks I am in. Insane to pay 63 bucks for a MOPAR filter retail...
Frankly when I compare the Korean filter to my Mann or Mahle for my BMWs I can virtually no difference in construction however the real test is the filter condition when removed...

Re: STP Oil Filter Photos, Q&A

So the STP does exist. I saw Autozone had them for 9.99, so i went down to pick one up today and the guy brought out a filter that didnt resemble in the least. I guess there part numbers are screwed up.

yup, ask for STP part number S11794. It may need to be special ordered and shipped-to-store

Looks like STP filters are manufactured by Champion (Champ) Labs. They filters for MOPAR and Mobil 1 as well as many other private brands.

Ha! That's awesome. It's right on their homepage too!

Sorry to derail the thread, but what exactly is a catch can and how does it work?

Re: STP Oil Filter Photos, Q&A

A catch can is put inline with the PVC or where ever you get fumes going back into the engine. It captures the oil so it doesn't coat the intake manifold and valves. The Jeep Grand Cherokee has an air oil separator which is designed to return the oil back to the engine and allow the fumes into the engine for burning off.
A catch can typically is not connected to an oil return line so it must be checked and drained when full.

Pretty much! As you can see, the centrifugal oil separator built into the Eco-Diesels doesn't do a perfect job of keeping oil out of the turbo intake. That's why some Grand Cherokee and RAM 1500 owners chose to add their own catch cans.
