Good Morning bitogers and off today to see chiropractor. I have 2 of these filters that I scored for $2 each and this is oldest of the two so I'm chopping it open. Looks ok to me, lil' wide pleat spacing here and there but serviceable filter for 3-4k OCI. Filter used for Ford ZETEC engines and uses two bypasses I think. Zee0Six nd others know more than me so hopefully they will be along smile [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

One bypass, Champ clicker type in this case. And a standard adbv and centertube mechanical adbv, sometimes referred to as an anti-siphon valve. Apparently Zetec engine very sensitive to oil drain back. Similar set up found on other equivalent filters like Fram. Looks ok to me. Looks like a silicone adbv which would be different from other blue STP. As an aside, no more Champ made STP blue filters at AZ locally. Now China coo manufacturer.

Has the other bypass; I mangled it trying to take it apart smile The current 8316 that's labeled as such is more like a 3600 filter and yeah made in China [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

As Sayjac mentioned, that's the "anti-siphoning" valve. Not really a bypass valve because it doesn't make anything bypass. The anti-siphoning valve is basically a spring loaded ADBV located in the center tube which holds the oil in the filter center tube when the engine is shut off. When the engine runs, the pump pressure opens the soft spring on the valve, so it adds hardly any flow resistance.

Anytime Stude, thanks for all your C&Ps. Always good to see the various filter constructions.

Are you sure that wasn't for a different filter?

The oil and filter had been in/on for almost a year/7K miles. This morning, upon startup, there was a "TICK" sound. It was there and gone instantaneously. The last time my engine ever made a ticking sound was about 5-6 years ago. I put a PRO-SELECT oil filter on there. Upon startup, it sounded like a woodpecker on a street light! I'm using the same oil filter on this OCI as was on the last OCI. Things that make you go "Hmmmmm.......!"

Yes, it also happened when I had a PRO SELECT filter installed by TIRE KINGDOM. The PS sounded like 3 wood peckers on a street light.
