I know it says its a transmission filter, but works just as well as a power steering filter on the return line, had a catastrophic pump failure and this should save the new one. Pretty solid little filter, it is plastic but does not feel cheap and the hose clamps included are good quality as well.

I bought this along with a magnefine filter to help in the longevity of my automatic transmission. I had the magnefine on first but after a couple thousand kilometres it developed a leak.

This Wix is currently installed and so far all I can say is, no leaks. Even though the ends of this are 5/16", i am stil making it work with the 3/8" hose in my system (hey thats what hose clamps are for :P)

The package contains:
- The filter
- 2 Hoses about 4" in length
- 4 screw type hose clamps

It is currently installed on a Honda S4XA transmission which is on the other end of a B16A2 engine.
Yes there are B16a's with automatic transmissions.

Will report back when i service the transmission again

Many import transmissions now do NOT have an internal filter of any kind, or else only have a screen to filter out large particles. By adding an inline filter of this type, you can easily double the life of your transmission with regular fluid changes. The main reason transmissions wear out is dirty and contaminated oil. A filter and fluid change every 15,000 miles can make a transmission literally last forever.

Finally it is warm enough to install this in my return power steering line.I had a magnafine in the line, that was leaking at the seam where it screws together ,so I decided to get this one because there is no seam that screws together to leak.Installed it and had fluid leaking everywhere.Tighten the clamp as tight as I dare,still leaked.Took it off and passed compressed air thru it and it was leaking where it was supposed to be glued together.Great and now I can't return it because I'm over the time limit.!Update....I contacted Wix about this filter and they replied that they are sending me a new one "no charge".So I'm raising my review star a tad due to their good customer service.Anything can go wrong ,as long as you make it right, I'm good with it.

I won't know until until I cut it open 10K miles, but for now the fluid is so clean and clear that I cannot see it on the dipstick.

Very good for the money. I have put them on my tansmission cooler line and power steering system with great success. I've got about 4k miles on each one and while I have no way to verify it is working without destroying them it's cheap insurance against having metal particles floating around the system. I plan to switch it out at 12k miles with spin on units to get a larger filter volume.

I just installed this in my power steeering system today (traditional American SUV) so I can't say this is a great review of the products performance. Took a spin around the block and it's not leaking.

Country of origin: hard to tell. Looks like USA in the fine print, but not said explicitly.

Filter kit comes with:
Filter, in a box
Two sections of 11/32" hose, 4 inches, 100mm long.
Four screw hose clamps.

Each end of the hoses had a nice little plug to keep debris out. The filter had no caps on its barbs, however, it just lived in a cardboard box.

Some dimensions of filter:
Overall diameter: 2 1/8"/54mm
Distance between each cone on end of filter, i.e., how much you need to cut out of your current hydraulic hose: 2 7/8".

I recently put fresh new hose on the return line of this car's power steering (10+ yrs, 270K mi or so) because it was old and hard, just as preventive maintenance. What I used on that job was 3/8" hose, and it fits fine on this filter.

I like spring steel clamps, what some people call "fuel injection clamps." I used these when I did the hose job before, and I used two more to put this filter in today:
http://www.amazon.com/Rotor-Clip-CTB-16ST-Constant-Tension/dp/B005EMZTHS
These keep a proper tension even as temperatures change, and are never too tight, or too lose. You know, in theory.

Went right in my Jeep. I'd recommend figuring out a mounting method, as there none provided and I didn't want it bouncing around. I used a large hose clamp mounted to the frame.

Some cars actually have a power steering fluid filter. Most of them are "High End" . I installed this filter on the low pressure "Return side" of the system. This will catch the very fine metal shavings that actually wear out the seals and bushings, which is how most rack and pump leaks start. The fluid in the system needs to be flushed every two to three years. It's a lot like an engine oil service. Buy this filter, flush out the old fluid, install filter and fresh, clean fluid and you will add YEARS to the life of the system! ## Be sure to dispose of the old fluid properly, Ok?

I installed a power steering kit on my truck. After filling the system, there was some grit and particles in the power steering lines. Even after flushing, some still remained. I ordered and installed this item on the return line, and after a day of driving I noticed that the particles were not noticeable by my old eyes. So this item has done an excellent job thus far of filtering out the junk in the system. Obviously was simple to install.
