Early versions of the 3.3 use the -3C100 filter kit. Newer ones use the -3C250 filter, which is shorter than the -3C100 filter. See:

for production dates. Otherwise simply look at the filter cap. Smooth is old style, molded hex nut uses the new kit.

Seems odd that there is no listing for the 3.3 V6 Sonata from 5/28/2007 to 9/22/2009. Surely they must have produced some V6 Sonatas during that time.

Yes they did. I took a couple of 2008 and 2009 Sonata's for a test drive before I bought the 2007. All the stock that was available (08/09) at the dealerships was the 2.4 I really wanted the 3.3 What a huge difference in performance. Uses more gas, admittedly but it goes like a scared rabbit off the line.

I know the 3.3 was available in 08. I just checked the web and they are out there. For 09 though i can't find a Sonata with anything but a 2.4 . Just went back and checked the web page link. They did make 3.3s for 08 and 09, just different oil filters??

That would be Frank Toyota. What a guy! The invoice says the filters are charged out at 1.50 each. So guess what? No brokerage fee and no duty fees. Sweet! I guess the border thought they were coffee filters or something...Anyway, I got lots now and wont' get gouged for them at the dealer here.

I told my wife it was a Christmas present for the car. She loves shopping and 'saving' money so it wasn't too hard a sell.

Yes rallyman, there is a Santa Claus.......

FWIW, if I switch to synthetic oil I will probably end up with 10 year supply of oil filters! I only drive about 10,000 miles a year. Next year with my retirement, it will probably be less.

Don't really care though.

A salesman told me: "you shouldn't change your oil before 6000 miles, otherwise it stays too clean and doesn't have a chance to work".

then he went on to say that if an engines oil stays too clean it will actually hurt the engine!!!

HUH??? I understand that oil will break down over time with heat and use, but too clean is bad? What the heck?? Did I get off the wrong turnip truck?

He's full of crap.

Yes, the oil is too clean bu not too clean to work. It's too clean to be changed. The oil is still good. The reason you don't change the oil too soon is because it's a waste of good oil.
