Renix oil filter

Rant ...

I don't know where you (Renix owners) buy your oil filters from, but I am having a heck of a time finding Renix oil filters at the chain auto parts stores. It seems like the manufacturers have stopped making them or the auto parts stores don't stock them any more. Ironically, the only brand that is available every where is the Fram brand. I have looked for Purolator (PL14619 or L14619), K&N (HP2007), Mobil1 (M1207), and Bosch (3401). The only one I found at Autozone was the Bosch brand. There is no NAPA close to my house. I'll try them the next time I am driving by a NAPA store.

Re: Renix oil filter

Get them at Napa or get Wix (they are the same filter), that's the best filter out there.



Speaking of I need to get a case of Renix filters too!

Re: Renix oil filter

NAPA.....
by the case, or is that 'buy the case....'

This summer's rebuild will include a remote oil filter, that way I can change it out to match the rest of my fleet....

Wix #51616 (Napa just drops the "5", I think. My local does for their house brand as well.)

Went to NAPA yesterday and they only had one. They said they only carry one at a time in order to keep the store inventory low. They said they'll have another one in a couple of days.

Re: Renix oil filter

Your napa sucks! Mine had 15 on hand when I was there yesterday. Have them bring in a bunch for you and get your years worth of filters. My store even gives a small discount by buying multiples so I get the all the filters I know I will be able to use, plus who wants to have to go hunting for filters when it is time to service their vehicle

yep. the "get it in a couple days" is BS. your store should be fed by the DC in Fontana, same as mine, and they have 79 renix filters in stock. they should be able to get it overnight at the latest.

Re: Renix oil filter

Yeah, the NAPA that's closest to my house rarely has anything in stock. I almost always have to call ahead of time so that they can have the stuff I need for the next day.
