NAPA 1153 Gold oil filter

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Tue Mar 23, 2021 8:51 pm

I have been using the 1153 filters for years with no problems. I needed 2 of them to finish my oil changes, and one was ok, but the 2nd one the filter bolt would not go through. I took it along with a spare filter bolt back to local NAPA to verify a replacement would fit. The 2 more they had in stock were also defective. I am waiting till they get more in. Thankfully I always have a spare, and used it to finish oil changes. I am waiting to get another one for a spare.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

I have used the Napa filters for some time now without issue, sounds like they had a bad batch come out

There's was a problem with the holes on the filters Steiner was selling a few months back as well.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

I bought several a while back when they were on sale, and a couple weeks ago, while doing an oil change, I found my first bad one. Took it back and got a replacement, but the NAPA store found a couple more bad ones while getting another one for me.

Where are the current napa cub filters made?

Just curious, mine is probably due for a oil change too! :)

Thank you!

NAPA filters are made by Wix. There are still a lot of wix filters that are made in the USA, but Wix has a number of facilities in Mexico, Venezuela, Poland, Brazil, China and others. I do not know where the actual cub filters are manufactured.

There was an issue, a while back, with the Wix filters (that's what was supplied by Steiner) which I thought had been resolved. I'm amazed how long it took for the problem to sift down to NAPA. A lot of the various store brands, such as Carquest, are made by Wix so you could potentially get defective filter from them, also.

I find you have to "screw" the bolt in to the filter hole on those

I use a tapered punch to enlarge the hole. A couple taps with a hammer works.

Correct me if I am wrong, I think there is 2 different oil filter bolts ,any early bolt ,and a later model bolt. If I remember correctly the earlier bolt is a slight bit bigger . I remember changing oil filters using napa filters and the early filter bolt needed to be forced through and the newer model bolt slide right through.

I changed oil on my cub yesterday and used a carquest filter.I screwed the filter on the threads and after clearing the threads it slid down the bolt.I think wix makes carquest filters.

They do. Says on the box. As to those wondering where wix cub filters are made anyone with a box can answer that it says on them. I have had some carwueat wix filters from some other county, india or china I forgot.
