This fine Polish made specimen came out of the MIL's '08 G6 2.4 Ecotec, run to 35% of OLM remaining, on some unknown dealer 5W30. Don't think there are any actual holes, looking kinda squashed as well. Put in Hengst made ACDelco & 5W30 full syn Autoquest/WPP.

Is it just me, or doesn't this filter look exactly like the torn Pro-Tec here? http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubb...Eco#Post4102180

Not just you. Both the Microgard and Pro-Tec are cheap Wixes, as is Napa Silver/Proselect.

Are these filters too long for the housing thereby causing them to be slightly crushed and leading to media failure?

That's what I was thinking too ... looks like a lot of crush going on.

Too much or too restrictive media?

Any tears?

My Mann filter got crushed once after a very cold winter. I feel like driving conditions might play a role.
