See all the pleats torn off the bottom? 6.0s are a picky beast, I had problems with the cover orings when it was really cold-they had a tendency to push out oil.

Wow, it seems like STP filters are not worth getting. If I recall this is the second one that has shown deficiencies.

See the circled portion of this clip from that photo:


Complete separation of the bottom.. about 1/2 of the pleats. Extremely bad.

Ahhh, totally missed that! I was staring at the top and the felt seal where the camera was focused!

Yeah, I had an STP filter on the wife's JAG. When I changed it, it was empty - as in the ADBV was not working so it allowed it to drain back over night ... Tossed the spares and went back to Baldwin smile

No more STP filters for me ...

Wire-backed synthetic filters like Wix XP/Napa Platinum or Fram Ultra would be good choices smile

6.0 PSDs are a unique case-I'm not a huge fan of MC oil filters, but I wouldn't run anything else on a 6.0, they're super picky. The '03 E-350 van I had was always doing something weird-it hated 15W40 (& even 10W30!) in winter, even with new batteries & FICM.
