Oil Filter Housing Kits

Oil Filter Housing Kits 

It is common for the seals to fail and begin leaking oil around the base. This video is sponsored by Standard.

Leakage is NEVER a good thing, especially when it happens due to age. Luckily, you – and your customers – can say goodbye to leaks once and for all. 

Unlike the “old days,” when an oil filter was “just an oil filter,” today’s original equipment filter housings are designed to meet the diverse cooling and lubrication requirements of vehicles on the road. They’re often complex, modular components that contain the filter,  multiple sensors, and act as an oil cooler. It is common for the seals to fail and begin leaking oil around the base, and sometimes, a replacement housing IS necessary. This is especially true on the Pentastar 3.6L V6 

That is where this Standard comes in, with a complete, oil filter housing kit that includes everything you need for a quick and complete repair.  

So, what’s in the box?  This! These units come completely assembled, so all you have to do is drop it in. They include a new oil cooler, and the oil filter and cap are already installed. They also include a new oil pressure sensor and oil temperature sensor. Standard housings are vehicle specific, not universal, and are designed to use the correct oil filter specified for each vehicle. 

That may sound obvious, but some universal oil filter housings may not use the oil filter designed and cataloged for the same vehicle. This will cause confusion when it comes to future oil changes – imagine having to search for an alternative when the “right” filter actually happens to be the wrong one. 

These units are more than just housings – they’re also oil coolers. Vehicle manufacturers have spent hundreds of hours designing these assemblies to make sure they meet the cooling requirements of today’s engines. And where OEs have chosen to use high temp synthetic materials, Standard oil filter housings are made from a high temperature synthetic material that matches the heat dissipating characteristics as the original. This helps keep the oil cool and keeps the engine operating in the range that the OE engineers intended. 

Some aftermarket companies have altered the OE design and specification and have built oil filter housings out of metal. If you have ever touched the metal handle on a skillet, you know how easily metal retains heat.  

The Standard kit also comes with all new gaskets and hardware, so you won’t have to reuse any of the old worn pieces, and each unit includes detailed installation instructions with torque specs to make installation faster and easier. 

A completely assembled oil filter housing, ready for installation designed for vehicle-specific filtration and correct cooling characteristics is in THIS box – what’s in yours?

EV Safety Basics on the Shop Floor – Part II

As long as you follow the EV guidelines, you are going to have to use the proper PPE and insulated tools.

Staying safe while working on an electric vehicle requires the correct shop equipment as well as the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) and shortcuts are simply not an option. Let’s take a look at everything you are going to need.

We’ll start with PPE and electrical safety gloves. Class zero electrical insulating gloves rated for 1000 volts are required for EV service. Simply put, these gloves prevent high voltage from traveling through your hands, and they must be tested every time you use them by checking for a pinhole or any damage that could allow voltage to pass through a glove. A glove inflator is the most efficient way to do this. Insulating gloves must also be clean and dry so there are no conductive substances that can allow high voltage to travel outside the glove to your arm. Treat these safety gloves with extreme care. They can be damaged easily and they’re sensitive to UV rays, so they should be stored in a dark, dry environment. A ventilated UV-resistant bag is the best option. Safety gloves must also be re-certified every six months. You’ll also wear them with a leather outer glove to protect them, most prefer to wear an inner cotton glove as a liner to allow your hands to breathe.
