I cut open a Purolator Classic L14610 that was on my Kia and has 5825 miles running Mobil Super 5000 10W30 oil over about 2 years.
Not sure how to interpret the manufacture code. The pleats were tight all the way around except near the crimp. I couldn't see any tears anywhere. The black rubber valve was a little hard and kind of slow to go back to shape but there weren't any cracks. Overall I didn't see anything that concerned me. What do you guys think?

Exciting stuff. LOL! Really it seems most Purolator filters seem to be fine.

Interesting, so I suppose this predates the reported tearing issues? It must have been a shelf queen because I installed it in April 2016 and typically buy the oil and filter a few days before.

Purolator oil filters with date codes after this one have been observed with tears. Also, the date code was properly decoded.

It seems there are quite a few Purolator made issues in the last 3 months or so. wink

The oil flow rate for the Kia isn't so terribly much - - that's a pretty big filter to handle the small flow rate.
