Went to Lowe's today, and while there grabbed a couple filters to cut open. This is a Blue Mountain BMJ4459. Same as Fram PH3593 or AC PF1127 or Purulator L14459.

Cost me all of 36 cents.

I cut a Fram that I will post in another thread.

All the stuff


Some excess glue, but no tears


Side with tight pleats


Side with wide pleats


Diagonal slots on the inner core

Good looking filter? I see past this monstrosity.

See what 2000 miles will do to it.

For $.36 I won't complain.

The one we ran in my son's Alero this winter came out looking pretty bad. I wanted to see what they looked like going in.

EDIT: 901Memphis...that is my son's filter. That's why I wanted to cut a fresh one open.

Want some filter media with that glue? Wow, that is a lot of glue! Not bad, not good....run of the mill cheap filter. I would not use it though because of the excess glue. Don't want some of that breaking free.

Yep you guys got what you paid for. I can't bring myself to trusting many filters these days.
