If this has been asked before I didn't see it. What is a Hengst oil filter vs a regular filter? I just changed my oil and replaced filter with same as came out. Did not appear to have a "check valve"? Or is Hengst just a name? I saw a variation in RockAuto

Wow, very interesting. So GM used both Hengst and UFI filter housings on the 1.4L?

Hopefully the same is NOT true for the 2.0L diesel. I just put a WIX filter in last oil change...ugh.
I found this when researching the Wix filter specs, from the way I understand the article this is only for the 1.4L. Does the 2.0 use the same still housing and cap? I would think it would be tough to install the wrong one.

FYI my car was built 03/11 and the 57674 is the only Wix filter that RockAuto shows that works with the 2011, so I wonder if the variations could come from the model of the vehicle since a few are listed in the bottom right.
