NAPAGold Oil Filters

Just read on another forum that NAPAGold oil filters do not work on the 2010 MDX. Apparently the filter bottoms out on the nipple thread shoulder before it fully seats. If you over tighten trying to stop the leak, the nipple comes out of the engine block when you remove the filter.

This was one person's experience. Have any of you successfully used NAPAGold oil fliters on your 2010 MDX? Thanks.

Just my opinion nothing else on a 2010 MDX other than this

15400-PLM-A01

Ordered 10 of them for my 2010. I had a quick look under my MDX and noticed mine also has (from factory) the Filtech Filter

Having the dealer do an oil change this weekend with my supplied oil and filter and will keep the original to compare to the 15400-PLM-A01

Thanks Fernando. I read that these A01 filters were discontinued and replaced with A02's made by Fram.

Where did you get your A01's? Thanks.

I saw that also but (to me anyway) it doesn't seam clear on the website whether they provide you with the A01 or A02, just stating that one has been superceded by the other.

Alternatively you can try

Filtech

My 2010 MDX had a Filtech filter installed at the factory.

I can understand why some people had problems with the NapaGold oil filters. I am actually a little worried about the Filtech A01 I installed this weekend. First, I was surprised that the factory installed Filtech A01 was hand-tight. I have never had a filter that didn't need a little mechanical help to remove it. Then, the new filter bottomed-out before I was able to rotate it a full 3/4 of a turn after contact. The gasket protrudes past the edge of the can only a little bit so it doesn't get compressed very much before the edge of the can contacts the mounting flange. Seems like a dodgy design.

Old thread...but I installed a NAPA Gold 7356 on my '12 and it was a perfect fit. I've used these for years on various brands with no problems. They have also held up fine based on oil analysis at 10k-12k mile intervals, although I likely won't be going that far on the MDX while under warranty (I use MID oil life %). This change was 8,300 miles at 15% oil life according to MID. I'll be sending in a sample for testing.

The oil filter should only be hand tight, it shouldn't be tightened with an oil wrench. Fram oil filters are terrible, cheapest of the cheap. The Napa Gold filters are actually a WIX filter which is an excellent filter.

Agree on the hand tight...I removed the factory installed filter by hand without a problem. In fact I don't even own a filter wrench that will fit these little boogers.

Typically, only 8-10 ft. lbs are needed to properly install and seal an oil filter. If someone over tightens, they run the risk of deforming the rubber seal and actually causing a minor leak. Hand tightening the oil filter just 3/4 to one full turn after initial contact alleviates the above risk.

OE Honda filters are adequate but certainly not the end all be all of oil filters.

Similarly to the drain plug, people go to Jiffy Lube even some Honda places and they over tighten the oil filter and the drain plug. A Volkswagen, I change the oil on, the customer brought it to a Jiffy Lube for a while and I had to put a whole new pan in. Drain plug should be tight but not over the top, the threads were torn out of this Volkswagen oil pan.
