I always recommended it. I mean, at dealer/PC cost, for the price of two WIX air filters (42479) you could instead buy an air filter (EAA237) that lasts four times as long as one WIX filter. Seems like a no-brainer.

I think it's still got a chance. They usually take down part numbers from their product guide/search when it's totally discontinued. Remember the 25k/1yr oil filter EaO57 a couple years ago? That was immediately taken down and discontinued when there were complaints of Toyota engine sludge when using it to 25k miles. FWIW, I still used it and had no problems. Now they have a 15k/1yr Ea Oil filter (Ea15k51).

Back to the air filter, take a look at the product guide search for our trucks, the EAA237 is still listed; you just can't click on it or purchase it.

This also fits the 3.4L Tundra; I have it in my 2002.

It does not appear to fit in the Tacoma and 4Runner 3.4Ls. I checked for 2002 and their webpage only showed WIX 46109.

Sent.

I just replaced my EAA237 with the WIX filter that Amsoil recommends. I was miffed as well that they don't offer Abxolute Effeciency filter anymore. Been using that one for several years.

The filters in the links I posted are not for any of your trucks?

Yes but if you'll noticed the EaA237 is not hyper-linked IE: it's not available to purchase, hence the reason for this thread. :)

So, now that my driving has reduced from a couple hundred miles a day to fifty miles a month....
I would have found out that there are no more filters for my truck in 2020?

Well, I just got a response and it's not a very optimistic one. This is from Byron Selbrede (tech services) " The requested air filter has been discontinued due to low sales volume. For this reason it is unlikely that it will again become available."

UPDATE

Amsoil is discontinuing the entire Ea Air Filter line for the following reasons:

"The air filter business has changed dramatically over the past 10-15 years. Vehicle manufacturers continually pack increasingly more under the hood, making the air induction system more complex. Filter designs change rapidly and a filter in today's vehicle may not be in next year's model. The number of air filters required to cover much of the current automotive market is astonishing. Our analysis revealed we would have to increase our product offering sixfold and that number will only continue to increase." -AMSOIL


If you use a universal cone-style air filter, you should buy one now while they're still available!

I think they only make one compatible with the Volant CAI. Would love to use one on my K&N.
I have one in my Volant and love it , will miss it if discontinued.

Amsoil almost killed my engine, I will never buy anything from them. Morons advertised their oil as "good for 25K miles". I was so stupid 15 years ago, I drove my car for about 8k miles w/o changing oil. Engine lost compression. I guess you think Amsoil people invented best oil filter, oil, air filter and everything else.

I've been doing the 25k changes now on my 2002 Honda (270,000 miles), my 2000 Tundra (230,000 miles) and now my new 2006 with no trouble at all. They all run like new and the oil usually looks as good coming out as it did going in. I doubt if their product was your problem.
