Make sure you get the right hyd filter for the XL

Just a heads up. I recently went to my dealer to buy a transmission hyd filter for the XL. I didn't pay any attention to the part# as I just trusted that my dealer gave me the right one.

While I was draining the fluid, I noticed in the owners manual that they listed the filter part# as 1726194. Just for the heck of it, I checked the filter from the dealer, but it was a different part#. I compared the filters and they looked the same except for color. I figured the part# had just changed, but just to be sure, I went to the SEPW website to check the part#.

According to the SEPW site, the part# 1726194 that was in the manual was correct and it was about double the cost of the filter I had from the dealer.

I took a trip to my dealer to have him double check. He looked it up on his microfiche cards and it showed that the part# he gave me was correct. To make sure, he got on the computer to check the # with Simplicity and it showed that the Part# in the manual was correct and the # on the microfiche card was wrong.

So anyway, he gave me the right part#, I paid the difference and was on my way, but had I not noticed the different part#, I would have put on the wrong filter. Dealer said it would have fit, but the correct filter has a much finer filtering ability, hence, double the cost. Over time, the trans would not have been protected like it should have been.

So the moral of the story is to double check those part numbers.

You did good way to stay on top of things. I know those filters are not cheap when I did my trans service last year I think that filter was around 30 bucks.

Re: Make sure you get the right hyd filter for the XL

I always feel safe about going with factory OEM parts. But, especially with filters, I no longer believe any advertising claims at all. There is an excellent website out there that did a test on a bunch of oil filters. The writer used a lathe to cut through the can to check out the media and the bypass mechanism. Turns out my beloved Fram (because of the rubber grip) is not so good.
