    CX-5 Oil filter specs?

    Interested in the OEM specs for the Mazda CX5 oil filter specs. I want to compare those specs to the FRAM Ultra 6607. Flow rates and efficiency are the two interesting specs for me. Ed

    Arrow Oil filter specs?

    Nobody knows but here is Mazda North American Operations' PDF to their US Mazda dealers concerning genuine oil filter's installation on SkyActiv-G engines:

    Mazda Dealers (in USA particularly) are also seeing stored DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Codes in PCM) when they use even 'other' genuine Mazda oil filters in Skyactiv engines, see pic, they look identical, but it is what is inside.

    Here is product specifications on Wix 57002 which is custom made for Mazda SkyActiv-G engines and it should have similar specs as Mazda "high-flow" OEM oil filters such as PE01-14-302A:

    Part Number: 57002
    UPC Number: 765809570023
    Style: Spin-On Lube Filter
    Service: Lube
    Type: Full Flow
    Media: Enhanced Cellulose
    Height: 2.827 (72)*
    Outer Diameter Top: 2.685 (68)*
    Outer Diameter Bottom: Closed:
    Thread Size: 20X1.5 MM
    By-Pass Valve Setting-PSI: 11-14
    Nominal Micron Rating: 15
    ( )* denotes metric

    And here is product specifications on Wix 51365 which is equivalent to Mazda conventional OEM oil filter B6Y1-14-302A:

    Part Number: 51365
    UPC Number: 765809513655
    Style: Spin-On Lube Filter
    Service: Lube/Transmission
    Type: Full Flow
    Media: Enhanced Cellulose
    Height: 2.58 (66)*
    Outer Diameter Top: 2.69 (68)*
    Outer Diameter Bottom: Closed:
    Thread Size: 20X1.5 MM
    By-Pass Valve Setting-PSI: 8-11
    Anti-Drain Back Valve: Yes
    Beta Ratio: 2/20=6/20
    Burst Pressure-PSI: 300
    Max Flow Rate: 9-11 GPM
    Nominal Micron Rating: 21
    ( )* denotes metric

    We can see how different these 2 oil filters are on specs although both can "fit" onto several different engines.

    For skyactiv engines, you're looking at the wrong specs. You want:

    By-Pass Valve Setting-PSI: 11-14 = Yes
    Filters marketing specifically for Skyactiv engines = Yes
    Anti-Drain Back Valve = No


    In contrast That Fram filter:

    By-Pass Valve Setting-PSI: 11-14 = No
    Filters marketing specifically for Skyactiv engines = No, universal spec to satisfy many makes/models
    Anti-Drain Back Valve = Yes

    You options are simple. Go with what is designed for a skyactiv engine...or not.

    You might get better answers over on BITOG.

    BTW, I run a M1 108A EP filter that meets the specs for my 17 CX5.
