This is a Napa Gold filter off a early 90s honda and I know it had less than 1k miles on the OCI. They time was over a year, but i dont know how long. Then the filter got stored outside in a tote that got moisture and dirt in it. The filter never got submerged though. The moisture in the oil is from this, as is a bit of dirt im sure.

The pleat spacing is very inconsistent, and the ADBV is torn. I dont know is something happened to tear the ADBV since the filter just came into my possession, but somehow it did tear.

The pleat spacing is my main concern, I noted no tears, but this was a very low OCI filter.

This filter was Henco En Mexico. I am not sure how many plants they have. This was also installed by a napa autocare center, not that it necessarily matters.

Looks like that filter got the last of the paper on that roll and they made it work.

Is that the same filter in the first pic and following pics? Man that's a little scary.

Wide pleats at the seam 1st place award. Media is strong if it didn't fail with that pleat spacing.

AMAZING the wide pleats didn't tear, though.

Are ALL WIX GOLD filters built like that? I had once considered trying a WIX GOLD filter equivalent to the FL-400S, but after seeing that one............ shocked

Yes it is. Its either the pleat spacing is really non uniform or they ran short on material.

Its hard to believe its the same filter.

This picture illustrates it a little better.

It was a Honda crx with under 100k original miles, as far as the oil I dont know. I assume it was 5w30 bulk oil. The oil residue on the filter looks like there was moisture uin the oil from storing the used filter outside in a tote that got water in it.

The filter was stored for a while after it was removed from service.

I know. The only thing is the filter had less than 1k miles on it with very few cold starts. The oil was changed based on time, not miles.

If that was in service over a brutal winter for 7500 miles or so I bet it would have tore.

That looks terrible. Now we know what made in Mexico filters look like inside. Thanks for the cut and paste.

Where is WIX QC? 1) Wide pleat spacing and 2) Torn ADBV. Media must be good to keep it from tearing.

My guess it was 5w-30 dino and it gathered some moisture that froze in the filter media.
