The Wix 51040XP premium oil filter provides robust engine protection, especially when combined with synthetic motor oils. Heavy loads, city driving and severe driving conditions are no match for the enhanced durability of Wix XP Filters. The XP filter eliminates 2x as much dirt and contaminants than a standard Wix oil filter. The wire-backed, fully synthetic media withstands harsh oil temperatures and conditions and is the latest in filtration technology. XP is specifically designed for longer OE oil change service intervals. When paired with high quality full synthetic motor oil, oil change intervals can extend to 10,000 miles(consult your service technician). Hydrogenated Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (HNBR) sealing gasket improves durability at high operating temperatures. The Steel baseplate provides greater resistance to corrosion and wear. Also, a silicone anti-drain back valve (where applicable) provides longer protection and resistance to hardening and cracking. Both spin-on and cartridge style filters are available with current coverage at 91.8% of vehicles in operation(VIO).
