Re: AW4 filter change pictures

The Magnafine filter has both a magnet and a pleated paler filter inside. It also has a bypass valve. I have cut one apart to find out.

Hot fluid filtering in addition to better magnetic capture of lartilces as stated is also of
help to reduce back pressure thru the filter media as thin oil flows easier thru the media. Less back pressure means less pressure loss and less bypassing via the bypass valve.

This is why be it tranny, engine, power steering, etc.., oils should be filtered prior to cooling.

I hose clamps the filters in place to the body panel just below the radiator, behind the bumper.

With the price of a tranny rebuild these days, A bit of extra filtering might be $aving money in the long run.
