#41 of 49 confused on correct oil filter
Jul 26, 2009 (4:42 am)
Just purchased 2009 Veracruz gls & intend to do my own oil changes. First experience with a top mount filter location but I'm getting frustrated in trying to find the correct filter #.
Understand Mid-08 veracruz changed oil filter design/size but i'm finding different info. that suggest either the filter being suggested is of the old type or just no record of a new filter & corresponding number.
National auto store suggested Purolator L-35610 but Purolator itse;f suggests L-25848.
Has anyone changed oil on a 2009 Veracruz and what filter (please describe numbers) did you use?

Charlie, the post you suggest don't get to the change in filter numbers which occured mid-late last year. Thanks for the reply but i'm still looking for a sure reference to an 09 VC oil filter.

Maybe if we tweak the title it'll grab the attention of some other owners.
And maybe you should email Hyundai? Or try the Hyundai web tech page?
#46 of 49 Wrong oil filter for my 08 Veracruz
Dec 10, 2008 (4:36 am)
I purchased my Veracruz last May and had the first oil change done by the dealer. A couple months ago I looked up the FRAM oil filter at Walmart and the only one listed for the 08 Veracruz was the CH9999. Yesterday found that filter is wrong for my V6. I have the top end model, the Limited with all options. I found that the filter in the car was about 4" long, or a couple inches shorter than the Fram CH9999. The Fram O-rings were also the wrong size. I went to the local Advance Auto and they confirmed that the CH9999 is the filter called for...and the only filter listed for the 08 Veracruz
Has anyone else run into this and more important have the correct Fram filter #?

Trust me the CH9999 Is the correct filter. I have the 08 Limited and have change my oil 4 times to date.
I believe the problem is your dealers "oil change" back in May. Does your dealer sell brands other than Hyundai ? If so the 19 year old pimple faced oil change dude probably screwed up.
If so no big deal you just went several thousand miles with no filteration.
Just one more reason to change your own oil.....

Thanks for taking the time to reply perdido2key but there are two different filters...I called Fram technical support and was told Hyundai changed the filter design on 3.8 engines after 10/07 and the new Fram part # was CH10515 but it was not available yet. Well...I hoofed it right down to my Hyundai dealer and was basically told the same thing. The Fram CH9999 filter is good for the 07 and early model 08 Veracruze. The Hyundai part # for the new smaller filter is 26320-3C250. My dealer wanted over $14 for this filter and I bought the car from them! After some whinning from me...they did give me 10% off that....Big deal. I found a good source for the correct Hyundai filter...Hyundaiaccessorystore.com. They will sell you all you want for about $6.80 each + shipping.

NAPA carries the CORRECT replacement for the 26320 3C250 filter. It is the NAPA 7250 filter; I just found it today and installed it and it is an exact match and comes with a new plug washer and 2 gaskets, just like the Hyundai model. AND.....it's only $6 and some change!!
