Is there any other brand of oil filter (other than Hyundai) that does not leak? I have tried Fram, but leaks after first day or 2. I tighten both the same and have never had issue with Hyundai brand leaking. Parts stores is closer than the dealer.

I only use Hyundai filters mainly for that reason. Too many stories of aftermarket filter kits leaking. You can buy the Hyundai filters online and on Ebay. That being said Wix also makes a filter, not sure if they will leak or not.

Aftermarket filters typically have wrong size o-ring for the cap, so they dont get compressed to canister wall very, then apply some 80psi oil pressure, they going to leak.. Have people go get oil change at a jiffy kinda place, then come to us with "my car leaks oil" thinking it warranty... we know Hyundai kit not leak, so why waste your time..

Go to Hyundai or Kia dealer, and buy a 30ct case of filters.... the case will cover you through approx 100,000 miles.. if you take car to somebody for oil change, have them use your filter, and make sure they change the rings...

Hyundai/Kia xxxxx-3C100 filter kit comes as filter, drain plug gasket, o-ring for cap, and o-ring for bottom of filter stem.. everthing in 1 box...

I have used several different brands including Fram and never had a leak problem. Are you pre-oiling the rubber gasket before installing the filter ???

I have used a number of differant brand filters and never had one leak. Do some research on the web on the quality of oil filters. There are some real junk filters out there. The Fram is about as bad as they get. Sorry Fram Fans! Purolator Pureone and Wix are very good filters for the money.

I have used FRAM filter for several oil changes and never had a leak problem (available at Walmart $6.50)
They are made in Korea and look exactly like the OEM. Are you lubing the rubber "O" ring ?? The plastic cap should be right up against the housing. If you see a gap say 3/16"
you did not tighten it enough .

Problem lies in the o-ring supplied with the aftermarket filters, they is dimensionally incorrect for material diameter, so when the cap and ring enter the canister, there is not enough comression of the ring into the groove and canister wall to effect good seal, thus oil under pressure will pass the ring and leak out all over top of transmission.

I really don't know why the filter would leak, unless you got the wrong size.
