This rolled into the shop today with an oil change reminder sticker indicating 11,000 miles on the OCI. Mileage at service was hand written on the sticker along with next lof due. No question there. Aftermarket shop did last lof. Car was here for 2.4 liter connecting rod noise inspection and passed inspection. 2011 Kia Optima 2.4 GDI. Got an oil and filter change after inspection with OEM filter and Mobil conventional. I do realize 11k on a jobber filter is blasphemy! Submitted purely for your amusement. Enjoy.

Never have seen a DENSO oil filter look like that.

Wasn’t 2011 around the time period that Kia/ Hyundai saw problems with using filters other than OEM thus pushing the notice to use OEM only? Not only was this filter used well past its time but maybe contributed to the knocking?

The main reason the tsb was released was due to the Lambda V6 engines with their cartridge filters and poor fit or quality of aftermarket jobber quality filters, and to a lesser extent different flow rates contributing to start up chain rattle. I can tell you unwaveringly the bulk of the 2.4's that come in locked up or rattling have Fram COR filters on them, but I feel this may be simply due to "law of averages" since Wal-Mart is a big express oil changer around here. A lot of Mighty filters on 2.4 failures as well. Jiffy Lube I presume?

On a side note, I have my hypotheses regarding the 2.4 and 2.0 Theta rod bearing problem. The connecting rod bearings are "selective" and color coded. This means there are no standard size rod bearings. One must measure the crank pin and the rod bearing journal and select the closest fit bearing insert. My guess is that errors were made in the selection. Pure conjecture based on what I know and have seen, but I have seen both bearing halves on the same side of the crank pin a few times. It takes quite a bit of rod bearing clearance to accomplish this.

Also, a lot of the failures have very spotty to nonexistent service history, as could be expected.

Very informative. Is Hyundai/Kia the only manufacturer that uses that system for engine bearings? It seems like a lot of possible confusion could occur instead of using a standard size

The original GM 6.2/6.5L diesels had selective fit bearings...it was dumb. Once AM General took over making those engines the selective fit system went away.

I know for sure Mitsubishi does it as well. Numbers are laser etched in the snout of the crankshaft corresponding to the exact size of the crank journals, both rod and mains. You must reference the numbers when you order bearings, plus the mic'd size of the rod or main bores. Kia and Hyundai have historically "borrowed" a number of engine design elements from Mitsubishi over the years. I can't really speak for other makes, in a past life I was a Mopar tech. I left when Daimler took over. Now Fiat. eek.

I may also add that this filter number crosses to the dinky Nissan filter, used on the VQ35. I think the Fram number is 6607. While the filter will actually screw onto the mount and the seal is the same size, it will cause a start up rattle. Not sure why and don't care really, it just does. The correct number Fram cross for the Kia 503/504 Mann/Hummel is 9688 or 3593A. Either will be fine. I would suggest nobody with a Kia or Hyundai use a tiny little Nissan oil filter. Quick lube places do it quite often because they "fit". That is all. smile

I believe the infamous oil filter TSB dates back well before 2011. That TSB scares so many people into buying only OE filters in the forums because how it is worded. The reality is, if someone posted about startup noise on any brand on this forum, most of us would suggest the oil filter as a potential cause... whether the car is a Hyundai, Ford, Chevrolet, or anything else. We all know a failed anti drainback valve can cause problems, particularly the nitrile rubber type found in most jobber or standard aftermarket filters. Quick lubes also are known to sometimes substitute the intended filter for another that they have in stock. A flat rate tech working a warranty claim quite frankly isn't going to spend the time to cross reference filter part numbers to make sure the right one was used or look at the different methods of construction to see if that might be the cause of an unusual noise. It is much easier to say that a known good filter should be used in this situation to see if it fixes the problem before going to more expensive and time consuming options.

What bothers me most is how some people interpret the TSB. I see this on other forums, and even from some dealers... they think the OE filter has a special valve that is missing in aftermarket filters. We all know that aftermarket filters include these whenever required. They also think that using an aftermarket filter automatically voids your warranty which is 100% untrue. Only damage caused by an aftermarket filter would cause the warranty to be void... a policy which every auto manufacturer has.

USE OF AFTERMARKET ENGINE OIL FILTERS CAUSING ENGINE KNOCKING NOISE
DESCRIPTION:
Some vehicles may experience an engine knock noise with the use of an aftermarket oil filter. Aftermarket oil filters may use different materials, construction and specifications than genuine Hyundai oil filters, which may lead to pressure variations within the engine, thus contributing to an engine knocking noise.
VEHICLES AFFECTED:
All Models
REPAIR PROCEDURE:
Perform an oil change on the vehicle and replace the aftermarket oil filter with a genuine Hyundai oil filter.
WARRANTY INFORMATION:
Normal warranty procedures apply.
This is not a warranty repair.



Seems the PZ-37 has a problem, had a similar issue on my sisters Santa Fe.

She is getting some TG filters on hers for a while (got a bunch of the TG3593a on clearance from Walmart).
