Sounds like a Purolator Pure 1. I'd look inside if its rusty I'd toss it if it isn't I'd use it. Had my Toyota Corolla running on Pure 1's for over six years without a hitch. It's a good filter. I've just switched over to their new 10K filter on my last OCI. But I have a couple of those left in my stash and they'll get used. Five of them in fact to be precise.

Thats like asking "OK to smoke?".
Risky.
Do not use. They are famous for tearing.
Google tearolator or purolator oil filter tear

Well if you don't use it curious minds want to see what it really looks like inside.

Use it or cut it and post. Two things will happen if you cut and post. If not torn there will be some unhappy folks and if you find a tear there will be a lot of I told you so's. Fun either way.

Who really knows what goes on inside the engine when a media tear happens - each occurrence is a unique situation. When media tears it's also possible pieces of media can come loose, along with continuous unfiltered oil of course. Some engines might have suffered, but nobody will know because no motor actually "blew up", as far as this forum knows. Engines will still run Ok with some minor damage, and only a tear down would divulge any damage or not.

But still not a good enough reason for me personally to play "Tearolator Roulette". Others can play, and I'll jusr watch. grin

So stop with the Tearolator roulette horse [censored].

You've spent nearly a decade perpetuating this myth.

No one has had a problem with Purolator damage except you in your REM dream state.

Your hypothetical damage scenario is not valid as filtration provided by even a damaged Purolator is sufficient to protect an engine.

So show me the [censored] proof or stop spreading this piece of FRAM marketing propaganda.
