2002 XG350 oil filter.

Discussion in 'Hyundai Grandeur / Azera / XG' started by fumunda cheeze, May 23, 2004.

  1. Can anyone tell me why hyundai oil filters have changed physical size
    since 2002. I was first one to change my oil filter. when I took the oem
    one off, the filter that came with the vehicle was at least 2" longer than
    the aftermarket one they sold me at the dealership. also, AC, fram,all I
    have looked at are the new shorter size.

    I know of no change, but new parts hit some dealers and some areas of the
    country sooner than others. Did your dealership indeed sell you an
    "aftermarket" oil filter? If so, were you expecting a Hyundai filter?
    And if so, why did they sell you an aftermarket??

  3. This was a poor choice of words on my part. It was a Hyundai part no.
    Ironically, it was the same part no. as the earlier and larger older one.
    Takes just a little over a half pint less oil now to fill it than it did
    before due to the smaller filter's physical size.

    Thanks for answering my post

    No change in OE engine oil filter size. What's the color of the filter
    you got at the dealer?

    OK, let me get this straight. You got the part number off the old
    filter, you compared it to the one on the shorter filter
    and they are the same?

  7. yep.

  8. That is the one they sold me. that is also the number on the box of the
    first one i put on from the dealer a year and 4 months ago when I changed
    oil the first time after I got it.

    I have since went back to the dealer, and the parts guy told me the filters
    have been shorter for almost a year.

    He told me that they often do this for no apparent reason. It is no
    problem. I just couldn't figure out why the change.

  9. I'll have to look under the vehicle. I already put it on. I'll get back
    with you.

  10. If you look at aftermarket filters, it's entirely likely that you can
    find one that's the same base and thread size, but longer. A likely
    combination is the PL14459 (short) and PL14619 (longer). Both are the
    same thread size. I'll hit my local Pep Boys and compare the overall

  11. I checked and while these two filters have the same thread size, the
    gasket diameter isn't the same. I emailed Purolator regarding a larger
    compatible filter for Hyundai cars and will post their reply here.

  12. Thanks Bryan.

  13. I've got some basic information from Purolator. The following filters
    are the same thread size as the L14459 that's spec'd for Hyundai:

    L10109, L10193, L10343, L14460, L14610, L14612, L14619, L20073, L20253,
    L20287, L20290, L24458, L30165, L30251

    I haven't had the chance to check which ones have the same gasket size,
    but I'll try to find out this week.

  14. Thanks Brian, looking forward to the information.

    Sorry I misspelled your name wrong in my reply to you.

    You know that the larger the filter, the more capacity it has to have. I
    just cannot figure why they downsized it. Maybe for more room in the
    shipping carton and less weight, from Korea. lol

  15. Found it! After comparing the filters on the list that Purolator sent me
    to the standard L14459, I found an exact replacement that's ~30%
    longer. It's number L24458. I picked up a Pure One filter of that type
    and will use it on my next oil change.
    Brian Nystrom, Jun 12, 2004
  16. Brian, thanks again. Just for the hell of it, what vehicle does the
    purolator L24458 type list in their catalogue? I also found a filter for my
    Kohler 17.5 hp john Deere lawn tractor . John Deere $12.93. Fram for ford
    escort $3.99

  17. Mostly Honda and Mazda 4 cylinder engines.

    I also found a filter for my
    Good deal!
