Just taken off a 2001 CRV 2.0 liter a couple days ago. Initial fill was 1 quart of Quaker State Higher Mileage Engine 10w-40 and ~3.7 quarts of Quaker State Higher Mileage Engine 10w-30. Not sure of all the top-off because this is not my vehicle. I know I added a 15 ounce bottle of Smitty's oil treatment shortly before the end of this OCI.

Oil change done early because of a dipstick tube failure. I was wondering why it was going through so much oil. I hope the repair diminishes the oil use.

Date code:


I had the filter base down over a jar for a day, no oil drained.
I cut the filter and emptied it into a jar. Here is the oil. Not bad.

Media:







As usual, no tears. I did an inspection with a light in the dark. Solid.

Good job Jay!

Nice cut & post. It looks like the filter could have gone another 3300 miles.

Thanks.

The owner has only had this vehicle since ~128k miles and it looks like the previous owner may have been extending the OCI a bit, so 4k OCI and FCI for a while I think is a good plan.

Thanks probably to cut open and show on this site, mainly, they have become pretty good bugs ironed out filters now. One of the best economy filters the economy minded owner can buy. I'll spend the extra $2-5/year, can't take it with me. Oil filters, the only item a cheap skate can be called a big spender.

Was at WM, again, more switched filters, many. Even an ST in a Mopar box for my size. Man comes, looks up his filter, goes to the orange color blazing away, and takes his filter. Gets his oil and off he goes. He probably is the smart one, since I was still involved seeing all the switching. The orange paint does attract the eye first. Overall, I think they have been working on the quality of them. I have a suspicion Purolator chose the red paint for their budget filters to stand out with the orange paint. It's a good bright red, probably patented.

That filter held up very well. I'd expect an OCOD to easily handle the 3300 miles without batting an eyelash, so I'm not surprised.

Thanks!

A guy at work told me he has always used castrol synthetics and an OCOD, changing every 5,000 and he has never had an oil related engine failure.
