Well I guess that it's time to go, and see if my Wrangler will fire up with that quality Conventional 30w oil in it, or maybe I need some Pennzoil Platinum for longevity..............
It has been great as always to hear your words of wisdom, GOOD BYE...........

Exact same thing happened to me. I purchased my first Wix there and it was $8 something. When back and they said $14.99. I laughed and walked out. Amazon was my next stop for Wix filters. Amazon Prime got it here in 2 days.

Needs to be tightened to 25 Nm according to the cap instructions....

That would also be my guess.............
The recommended torque is 18 pounds, so I use 15 and call it good!

It split at the taper in the housing, where the oring makes contact.

I don't know if it was a defective housing, or he over tightened the cap...............

On another note I picked up a new cap for the 2012 and the thing had an expiration date on it.....not sure it was a "use by" or "replace by".

I need to take another look.

I recall reading somewhere Allpar maybe? that the change was to get all cartridge filter engines on the same P/N including the 3.0 Diesel in the '14 WK2.

Nah IMO, the same filter is used for a lot of other Pentastar engines including pre-'12 GC and 300's and there are a lot of those, I would be a little upset if I were the parts store guy......that makes ANOTHER filter they need to stock.....never had a problem finding one for my '12...even when it was "brand new"

kbwwolf On a related note, I saw a cloud yesterday that looked like exactly like a Jeep grille, except it had triangular headlights. Made me feel funny.

Blastek maybe it will fix the dry start

jadmt Probably a new head design that changes ithe filter location
