Default Oil Filter

What is the proper oil filter for a 2009 borrego with a 3.8L engine? Dealer is not sure. The part numbers that I have are as follows.
26320-3C100
26320-3C250
Please advise.

Thanks,

The dealer not being knowledgeable about this is somewhat disturbing.

There is a thread about this already:

http://www.kia-forums.com/kia-mohave...l-filters.html

The two known versions were:
26320-3C100 = old
26330-3C300 = new

By you throwing in 26320-3C250 added a whole new level of confusion

My suggestion to you is to personally verify which filter you have. It's easy to do and takes 2 minutes... see here:

http://www.kia-forums.com/kia-mohave...il-filter.html

Replace it with the one you currently have if possible.

Then tell the dealer to learn their products...

Both engines in the Borrego use the same filter. Hyundai has been messing with part designations on filters the past year. Part numbers 26320-3F100, -3C300 and -3C700 have been consolidated under the designation 26320-3C30A. This can be confirmed on the latest Hyundai Oil Filter Reference Chart for dealers that can be found at:

http://dcs.hyundaidealer.com/files/r...il_filters.pdf

I could not find a similar reference chart for Kia vehicles, but I'm still looking.

I really think that Kia/Hyundai really have their wires crossed between all the Lambda engine platforms and the correct oil filters. There are some physical differences between them... metal canister vs all paper... 121mm vs 104mm... etc. But one no one has been able to tell me if they all are interchangeable or not. Both my local dealers are clueless. Looking at them, albeit there are differences, I find it hard to believe that one would cause harm over the other. But when it comes to warranties and replacing engines, I'm not willing to take the chance. Luckily, my local dealers carry the same part # that mine came with... so I've been just keeping it the same as OEM until proven otherwise. Engine has been running great the filter seems to be doing the job. If it ain't broke... I'm not going to fix it. Unless of course, I get some solid info from Kia.

kia parts catalog part#'s i show for 09 borrego 3.8 are either 26320 3c250 or 26320 3c300 depending on build date, and then there is overlap between the two.
26320 3c250 production 8/7/08 to current and 26320 3c300 production 4/26/08 to 9/30/08. the 3c250 cartridge has plastic ends while the 3c300 has felt on the ends of the cartridge. hope this helps. kps

Does the Kia Parts catalog maintain a master oil filter reference chart for Kia dealerships similar to the Hyundai sheet?

Does this mean that the 3c250 is interchangeable with the 3c300? Do the two different build dates mean totally different designs? I have been using the 3c300 filter, but I can get the 3c250 filters for a lower price. Everywhere I go the 3c300 filter is like $10 and above (the dealer wanted $20!!). I've found the 3c250 filter for a lot less. Thanks!

There Is No Part# Supercession Between These 2 Part#'s So I Dont See Any Interchangeability. The Overlap In Production Dates Simply Means Both Designs Were Used During That Production Time Period, So It Could Take Either Filter And You Would Have To Look At The Old One To Know For Sure. There Is A Difference In The Filter Cartridge Housings. There Is A Difference In The Filters, That Being The 3c250 Has Pastic Ends On Cartridge And The 3c300 Has A Felt Material. Kia Suggested Retail 9.60 And Dealer Cost Are The Same For Both, Some Major Metro Areas Will Be Higher. I Do Sell These At A Case (12) Discount. Kps

I asked since the company was maintaining such a chart for Hyundai models on their Hyundai dealer support site (see link in my previous posting above), it would make sense to do so for the Kia dealerships as well. The analogous Kia dealeship support site is domain password protected, so public access is prohibited. I thought perhaps someone like you might have access to that information.
