NAPA® Echlin® Oil Filter Housing Kits include the vehicle-specific Filter, Cap, Bypass Valve, Heat Exchanger (Cooler), Gaskets, Hardware, and both the Oil Temperature and Oil Pressure Sensors. Competitor units don’t include all of the necessary components.
Vehicle manufacturers have designed these housings to meet the cooling requirements of today’s engines. NAPA® Echlin’s Oil Filter Kits are made from a high-strength, glass-filled nylon housing. This helps add strength over the OE design. It also matches the heat-dissipating characteristics of the OE design and keeps the oil cool.
Other aftermarket companies have changed the OE form and function, and have built oil filter housings out of metal. While this may look stronger, metal retains heat much differently than synthetic materials. Think about touching the handle on a hot pan. Would a metal handle or plastic handle be hotter?
NAPA® Echlin® Housings are also vehicle-specific, not universal, and are designed to use the correct oil filter cataloged for the vehicle. Now, that may sound obvious. But some other oil filter housings are universal, and may not use the oil filter designed and cataloged for the intended vehicle. You can imagine how much confusion that causes when it’s time for an oil change.
The NAPA® Echlin® EOF100 comes completely assembled, so all you have to do is drop it in place. All NAPA® Echlin® Oil Filter Housing Kits include new oil temperature and oil pressure sensors. The oil filter and cap are exact OE-match and come already installed. The NAPA® Echlin® Kits include all-new gaskets and hardware for a clean install–you won’t have to reuse any of the old, worn pieces.
