Just wanted to see others thoughts on the purolator tear scare going around. I've long been a purolator fan and currently running 5 vehicles with 4 pureones and 1 classic and have 4 pureones stashed. I just recently started reading all the issues about them tearing, been away from here a little while. Il defiantly cut mine open as they come due but the more I think of a possible tear and oil blowing thru the more paranoid I become. Lol. Might not make a full oci.

I pulled one at 2000 miles, and did a complete oil change(was originally planning on 5000 LOL NOT ANYMORE).

Went to Walmart and bought a FRAM toughgaurd. I have another pureone sitting on my shelf gathering dust..

I do not think a small tear in the media of a filter will cause any harm. Its not like shoveling some sand into the oil fill.

Oil goes from the outside towards the inside.

I agree but it's not filtering at the same rate that I'm paying for. Buying a middle to high grade filter I want full advertised filtration.

I have a purolator classic on my beater right now. I will run it the full 5000 miles before replacing. I have an old purolator classic in my stash for my daughter's S10. I will use it on the next oil change and will run it 5000 miles too. I will cut them open after use.

Nope. I have a P1 on right now. It'll get taken off somewhere between 7,500 and 10,000 when I change the oil.

I did the oil change early at 6500 km and cut it open and found no tears. I have one classic and left which I will leave for now. The other filters are Napa golds.

I returned several Pureones......won't use them again....at least until I'm certain they FIXED the problem.

I don't understand how Driveworks Chinese made filters have nice even pleats and Purolators are always wavy....poor design or QA (or trying to skimp on filter material)...
