Another Purolator made apecimen that tore in 4,000 miles. Friends work van and he used this and some QSGB 5w30. Put in more QSGB and a tough guard. Made October 6, 2014 line "D" and 1st shift also.

Car51 - thanks for the cut and post. This shows the Purolator tearing problem is still alive as of Oct 6, 2014. Possible causes:
1) Not enough media.
2) Brittle media.
3) Pleats unevenly spaced.

Oil looked good.

I put money on #2. Seen some orange cans that fall into 1 and 3, but they don't tear.

Thanks for the pictures!

Bad filters all the way around.. I stopped using Purolater for good when all the tearing and quality control issues started popping up and when you called them they pretended it was not an issue.. But because of the internet and everyone owning a camera the truth is out in full force.
Buy a filter not made by them!
Thank you car 51 for exposing all the tears good job!

News flash.

Jobber grade Purolators sometimes tear.

Story at 10 PM.

I believe it's time for Purolator to upgrade their product line.

Oh, they have.
