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.

Never thought I'd say this but I'm looking to the fram tough guards. And the ultra for my z71.

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)...
