A History of Excellence
WIX is well-known around the world for its innovative filtration products for the automotive and light truck market. Founded in 1939, the Gastonia, N.C., company earned acclaim during World War II when it created an oil filter out of a paper tube, wooden plugs and yarn when steel was in short supply. In 1954 WIX created the revolutionary spin-on oil filter that was eventually adopted as original equipment on most vehicles.
Today WIX manufactures some of the best oil, air, lube, cabin air, hydraulic, fuel, crank case breather and transmission filtration products on the market. The company is also widely known for its support of NASCAR.
WIX panel element air filters have a linear path through the filter for low airflow restriction, a specially formulated adhesive to form WIX's exclusive pocket pleat for the filter media and a soft sealing urethane gasket molded in place on the filter element.
Radial air filters are constructed of mesh screen on the inside wall diameter for element strength and media protection from backfire. Each round filter is manufactured with heat-resistant plastisol with specially designed crush seals on the top and bottom walls and adhesive seal joining the media ends. Additional Filtration Products AMSOIL offers WIX filtration products for auto/light truck and racing applications. This includes not only standard air and oil filters, but fuel, transmission, cabin air and filters specially designed for racing as well.
WIX fuel filters provide unmatched fuel cleansing performance. They prevent pump wear, injector clogging, premature engine wear and help boost fuel efficiency. WIX fuel filters offer quick, easy filter replacement, long life and the possibility of extended service intervals. WIX spin-on filters reduce the possibility of improperly installed cover gaskets, and they provide effective, easy draining of excess water on filters equipped with the drain plug. The superior materials, design and construction of WIX fuel filters provide excellent performance under all types of operating conditions.
AMSOIL will also offer the full line of industry-leading WIX transmission filters for passenger cars and light trucks. WIX transmission filters provide superior protection for many transmission applications in the auto/light truck market.

WIX filters are supplemental to AMSOIL Ea filters, but now AMSOIL will offers WIX filtration products that cross to an Ea filter. With the exception of WIX lube filters, all WIX filters should be changed in accordance with original equipment manufacturer's (OEM) recommendations. WIX lube filter change intervals are extended OEM recommendations to match the drain intervals of AMSOIL XL Motor oil.
