So, back from Boiling Springs PA and this filter gave brother low psi after installing. He put this and M1 0w40 in his 07' Yukon hybrid suv around December 1 timeframe. Next morning noted real low psi; psi came back to normal but driving to work it went to 5-9 psi. He had friend bring it to brothers garage and brother put it back on lift and installed a M1 filter and all is well now. ADBV has slices in it and was rock hard! He has 2,000 now on M1 filter and M1 0w40

Next month ill be in Boiling Springs again so hopefully i can cut the M1 fikter open. I gave brother 2 5quart jugs of Castrol 0w40 for next oci. Vehicle has 112,557 miles on it.

I tried the basic blue can STP twice on my Nissan and had lots of start up noise both times so I stopped there use. I do have good luck with the better STP filters though.

This was first ever STP filter brother used. He said "P1 or M1 filters or WIX from now on!"

Start up noise from the Purolator made STP is why I went with the China made STP XL, 6 mos already and quiet as mouse.

How many miles on that filter? It looks pretty clogged up.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

can you post what the manufacturers claim is for filter media efficiency?
some of these lesser grade filters may not filter, even if they "look nice"


These products are all new every year?? They are a revolution!!! Razor blades, mens shirts, TVs, wiper blades, gutter guards, hearing aids... according to the ads. But also all new last year

Thanks for that. I did read the post. Dec 1

For 100 miles that filter looks horrible.

Does it normally have oil pressure issues? 40 weight seems high for that application, can't believe a 5W30 wouldn't be thick enough.

No, its been balls to wall reliable 6.0 LS in the Yukon. I educated brother on the b.s. in resource conserving oils. I gave him 2 5quart jugs of 0w40 CASTROL EDGE for next couple oil changes. He has learned the 0w40 is a stout oil

Car51, I agree. We see plenty of bad Purolator filters here. Still, for a filter to look like that after just 100 miles tells me that engine is in poor shape. GovMo
