Will be interested in what you find out and what those in the know say about the importance of a anti-drain back valve. Making me wonder if I should just get Mopar filters when the time comes.

Well..here is the answer from WIX, kinda figured this is what it would be....

The filter is mounted Vertical on the vehicle and an anti-drainback valve is not required for a vertical mounted filter. No sir there is not an anti-drainback valve in the 57620 or 57620XE.

Thank you for your interest in WIX Filters.

Thank you Kozzy for your reply. The response would seem to make good sense. I am guessing Mopar may include a anti drain back valve for other models that do not position the filters upside down & may share the same filter.

I even double checked the mobile 1 filter specs...and it says the anti drain back valve is only in the filters hat need it. So I am assuming that the filter for the cummins will not have it..

Thanks again. I feel comfortable with the Wix filter for my truck and it is about $2.00 less expensive in my neck of the woods. It just makes sense the anti drain back valve would not be required in our trucks since the filter is facing down.

My input to this discussion is how many have actually checked their miles to when the truck or computer says it needs an oil change. I only have about 27000 miles on my 2011 CTD and the first oil change was around 5000 miles and the Oil Change required was on for a couple of weeks. The second and third oil changes went about the same except for the light which I checked via my trip odometer it turned on at 3490 miles since oil change. Seems rather convenient to be so close to the Gas requirement of 3500 miles at least that is what my 05 Hemi was. I called the dealer before my last change and questioned the philosophy that it tracks my usage and driving to know when the oil needs changed. I have run AmsOil since the first oil change which was free at the dealer. I drive it daily but the drive is about 12 mi to work and almost never really hauls or pulls anything so if anything I am under using its abilities as a vehicle to get to and from work and all but the last mile or so is hi-way or interstate. I am not questioning your standards of changing oil but I know when mine has turned on the last few times and it is way too soon especially when I am running AmsOil.
