Folks, I am no fan of the fiber end cap FRAM oil filters. From what Iíve seen here, it looks as though the Ultra or XG line is a good filter. Iím curious to know from people running them on their Hyundai and KIA autos. Give me a rundown. Anything noteworthy. Convince me I would be safe running the XG9688 on my 2013 KIA Optima.

I know that other Kia owners on here will know this for a fact or what's going on with that generation of Kia/Hyundai. You may well be better served running a OEM oil filter on that Kia. Due to those vehicles having an issue with aftermarket oil filters.

Ohh and just let you know that some very very expensive cars use fiber backed end caps. Including Bugatti.

I am currently running the Fram Ultra on my Hyundai 2.4 SantaFe. Since installing it I have had occasional startup rattle. Never had this with the other filters. I am going back to either the Tough Guard Fram or original Hyundai filter.

Hi OP, use it with the utmost confidence. I do, all the time in both vehicles. The Santa Fe Sport 2.0T has used more XG9688 than the OE filter and there has been no weird sounds or rattles since 2013.

This is the kind of information Iím looking for. As for the fiber end cap versions, Iíve had experience with those and Iíll leave it at that.

So, youíre happy with that particular filter in your Ď13 Santa Fe? I think you get where Iím going with that era of Alabama built engines.

+1 .... I use this filter (XG9688) on my Hyundai and haven't experienced any problems whatsoever.

Iíve tried the XG9688 twice. The engine ticked till warmed up. OEM only for me, now.

MParr .... All I know is I have a 2012 Hyundai Elantra 1.8L, and I have been using FRAM Ultra XG9688 oil filters on it without any problems. If you feel more comfortable running the OEM filter, then use it instead. The FRAM Ultra oil filter is better in my opinion, but the OEM filter will serve you fine as well.

I ordered a 6 pack off Ebay based on recommendations by Hyundai-Forums.com members. I had concerns after seeing them compared to OEM I am using. What I learned you cannot know a lot by looking at a filter. Reading posts by Motorking, the Technical Director at Fram has give my total confidence in the Ultra filters. Here is some of his wisdom:

Premium Guard filter for Hyundai/Kia

I am going to use OEM and Fram Ultra filters with confidence. Not so confident in Hyundai's ability to make a trouble free motor (yet).

I've had my Turbo Optima for 5.5years now and started out by running the Purolator PureONE filter for several years until the scandal of the tearing media caused me to switch to the Kia OEM filter (both the old and new version). They are well built (I've cut them open) but have very unknown and suspect (IMHO) filtering specifications. So I switched to the FRAM Ultra (XG9688) and sleep well at night.

FWIW: I also run Castrol Edge 0W-40 oil and run a 4.5K OCI.

Your cars donít fall within the recall. Iím confident Hyundai and KIA can make good vehicles. I owned a 2006 Hyundai Tucson and it was a great car. I only used OE or NAPA Gold filters. I knew nothing about the FRAM XG at the time.

MParr, I've also used NAPA Gold filters on my Hyundai. They are excellent filters as well.

What experiences did have with fiber end caps???? I am just curious. Nothing more than that. And I am not saying that I won't or will not believe you. I try to be fair and willing to listen to what people have to say. I am just curious as to what you observed. And how long ago did this happen??
Bottom line is that if you look at the last several years worth of Fram orange can filter cut and posts most of them actually look quite good. The 7317s, 6607s, and a couple of others all have been very good in fact.
Tony10s is definitely right about how good the Wix and Napa Gold filters are. A very good choice indeed.
