Good evening folks. This factory filter was off friends 2018 Escape with 2.0 engine. Put magnatec 5w30 and WIX filter on. First time I EVER saw WIX made Ford factory filter.

Enjoy the pics

I'm sure it worked fine but a FL910S sure looks better. Just buy a WIX or NAPA Gold.

I have cut open many MC 910s and have never seen one with twisted media.

Not twisted, it's wavy tig1

Winter will affect a filter also

Picture 6 looks twisted to me. Starrt at the top and follow the fin to the bottom. Obvious offset.

Interesting! Makes me wonder if Ford may be changing over to WIX as a supplier.

Guess folks can't tell wavy from twisted. What a joke

To the best of my knowledge the filters installed at the engine assembly line aren't tied to the aftermarket service replacement line of MC filters. The assembly line contract is probably sourced from a bid for product flow a specific length of contract. Just a guess.

I thought most OEMs used a unique, not available for retail purchase oil filter in new cars to have one more way of ensuring the owner actually changed the oil and filter at least once. So what comes off a new Ford engine may not necessarily be a MotorCraft.

Notice the last two letters (BA). This is a new series, the old suffix letters were AA. Plug the old part # (9W7E-6714-AA) in and Mann W-7015 comes up.

MANN+Hummel own both Purolator and WIX.

That is the exact filter that came off a 16 Land Rover Evoque with the 2.0t as well, she only went 13k on her first oil change.

I hope so ... but it would still be M+H so might not change anything in terms of quality.

LOL! Play on words. Same difference. I hope Ford isn't changing over to WIX if the media is going to be twisted like that in the FL 910.
