Technical Service Bulletin SPB-027
***IMPORTANT NOTICE M4622, M4620, M4459A ***
Hyundai and Kia Oil Filter Recommendation Change M4459A
Service Pro oil filters M4622 and M4620 are no longer recommended on Hyundai and Kia applications where M4459A is shown as the “Original Option” or “OEM Replacement” filter.
For these applications, use only the M4459A.
This Technical Service Bulletin removes the consolidation of Service Pro spin-on oil filter model M4459A in select Hyundai and Kia applications.
Service Pro electronic catalogs have been updated to reflect this change of recommendation. The Service Pro 2015 printed catalog and all prior Service Pro printed catalogs are hereby changed to recommend ONLY M4459A for Hyundai and Kia applications.
On many Hyundai and Kia vehicles, an oil cooler is used as the mating surface for the oil filter. This original equipment oil cooler has a different inside diameter of the seal surface that is wider than the inside diameter of the gasket of both M4622 and M4620. Due to this difference, a slow leak may develop over time.

Service Pro e-catalog at http://service-pro.e-cat.us.com/ reflects the correct recommendations for all Hyundai and Kia vehicles. If you are unsure of the filter to use, please call the Service Pro Filter and Wiper Blade Technical Hotline at (800) 225-2837.
The Service Pro e-catalog is always the most up-to-date recommendation for all Service Pro filters and wiper blades.
