Federated Auto Parts has changed their supplier for their house branded Federated oil filters from Hastings to a Chinese company. The Chinese filters look good, but the filter for the Renegade 2.4 replaces 3 Hastings filters. The 3 Hastings filters were close to the same size, but the bypass pressure valves are 8 psi, 14 psi, and 20 psi. I can't find the specs on the Chinese oil filter, and I don't know the specs for the Original oil filter. My question is; Does anyone know what the oil pressure is when the 2.4 is cold and hot and does this really matter? If it doesn't matter why would Hastings make 3 similar filters with 3 different bypass pressures?

The pressure setting of the filter bypass valve has nothing directly to do with the engine oil pressure.

The filter goes into bypass based on the bypass valve setting, the oil viscosity, oil flow rate, and the resistance to flow that the filter media poses. If oil pressure post-oilfilter drops below a certain pressure, the bypass valve will open and ensure sufficient oil flow.

Under ideal conditions the bypass valve does not open and the engine enjoys filtered oil.

The bypass valve open when the engine and engine oil are cold. The thick oil does not pass easily through the filtration medium, thus oil pressure post-filter drops/is low. As a safety measure, the bypass valve opens to ensure lubrication. As oil pressure post-filter rises, the bypass valve will close.

During full-throttle acceleration oil pressure can also drop (momentarily) post-filter, resulting in the bypass valve opening.

Should the filter get clogged, oil pressure will drop post-filter, and the bypass valve will open.

A few PSI difference in the bypass valve setting won't matter much. A lower bypass valve rating may be better if your car is subjected to frequent cold starts. If you race your car, a filter with a higher setting should be of advantage.

Find out what bypass pressure the OEM filter has (Call OEM filter maker). Try to find a filter that roughly matches the OEM's bypass pressure specs. Some manufacturers like Bosch, Mann and Mahle publish extensive and comprehensive specs for their filters.

Got a part number and OEM manufacturer of the OEM filter that Chrysler sells?

Use a genuine Jeep oil filter or you could fine if you have engine problems .. Jeep will say they wont stand by the warranty .. had this problem with Fiat's in the past when customers use non gen parts .. not worth the risk :eek:

Here is a link for the Renegade Wix filter application, It lists their bypass valve pressure setting. Even though the Magnuson-Moss is supposed to protect you, in my opinion, if you have filter related problems you will be better off to use the factory filter, regardless of where it's made. I use factory oil filters on all of my newer cars until their warranty has expired.

That list of filters are equivalent to the WIX 57060 oil filter except for one spec, and that is the Bypass Pressure Valve. It still doesn't make sense to me that Hastings Makes 3 equivalent oil filters all with different bypass pressure valves. The Wix is 12 psi and the Hastings are 8, 14, and 20 psi. The one that the Hastings catalog recommends is the LF636 which is the 8 psi.

The bypass valve pressure setting is not critical. All it means is that the filter goes a little earlier or a little later into bypass mode. The lower bypass valve pressure setting of the Hastings makes it the more favorable choice if your vehicle is subjected to cold starts. Under full throttle acceleration, the Hastings with the lower setting may often unnecessarily go into bypass. The real question is, what is most beneficial to your driving conditions and driving style?

Just because the WIX specifies 12 psi, we do not know that the engine maker's spec is not a range, for example 8-14 psi. The fact that you find various bypass valve numbers for different filters that are listed as equivalent products supports my suggestion.
