WIX Filters


WIX is well-known around the world for its innovative filtration products for the automotive and light truck market. Founded in 1939, the Gastonia, N.C., company earned acclaim during World War II when it created an oil filter out of a paper tube, wooden plugs and yarn when steel was in short supply. In 1954 WIX created the revolutionary spin-on oil filter that was eventually adopted as original equipment on most vehicles.

Today WIX manufactures some of the best oil, air, lube, cabin air, hydraulic, fuel, crank case breather and transmission filtration products on the market. The company is also widely known for its support of NASCAR.

Superior Construction

WIX oil filters have a full metal base plate for superior strength at the double seal. They also feature a silicone anti-drainback valve that stays flexible in extreme temperatures. This improves oil flow and keeps oil in the filter to prevent dry starts.

WIX oil filters use an up-front by-pass valve. This design is superior to top-mounted valves because it helps to keep oil from washing past dirty media and entering the engine. The glass-enhanced media in WIX oil filters offers greater efficiency, capturing more 10 to 12 micron sized particles than other cellulose/synthetic blend medias. They also have a coil steel spring to ensure internal filter parts are sealed properly.

WIX panel element air filters have a linear path through the filter for low airflow restriction, a specially formulated adhesive to form WIX's exclusive pocket pleat for the filter media and a soft sealing urethane gasket molded in place on the filter element.

Radial air filters are constructed of mesh screen on the inside wall diameter for element strength and media protection from backfire. Each round filter is manufactured with heat-resistant plastisol with specially designed crush seals on the top and bottom walls and adhesive seal joining the media ends. Additional Filtration Products AMSOIL offers WIX filtration products for auto/light truck and racing applications. This includes not only standard air and oil filters, but fuel, transmission, cabin air and filters specially designed for racing as well.


Additional Information

WIX filters are supplemental to AMSOIL Ea filters, but now AMSOIL will offers WIX filtration products that cross to an Ea filter. With the exception of WIX lube filters, all WIX filters should be changed in accordance with original equipment manufacturer's (OEM) recommendations. WIX lube filter change intervals are extended OEM recommendations to match the drain intervals of AMSOIL XL Motor oil. To find the correct filter for your application, consult the Online Product Application Guide.

WIX Racing Filters

AMSOIL is carrying WIX racing filters in addition to filters for more common automotive and light truck applications. WIX has been a part of racing and NASCAR for many years, both as a sponsor and in the race cars. The company's long-standing relationship with NASCAR not only demonstrates that WIX filters are high-quality products, but it also shows WIX's dedication to racing, making it a perfect match for AMSOIL.

WIX is an associate sponsor of the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 18 car driven by 2000 Winston Cup Champion Bobby Labonte in the Nextel Cup Series. WIX is also an air filter contingency sponsor in the NASCAR contingency sponsorship program, awarding cash prizes to WIX-sponsored drivers in the Nextel Cup, Busch Grand National, Craftsman Truck, Winston West and Busch North Series that finish in first, second or third place.

WIX also sponsors Joe Gibbs Racing's No. 20 car driven by 2005 Nextel Cup Champion Tony Stewart, along with Richard Childress Racing, Bill Davis Racing, Dale Earnhardt, Inc., Evernham Motorsports, Hendrick Motorsports, Roush Racing and Robert Yates Racing in NASCAR's Nextel Cup Series.

WIX racing filters are specially designed for racing applications and are not intended for normal driving applications. AMSOIL will carry all WIX racing filters, which includes 10 oil, 14 air and 2 fuel filters.
