Carquest Premium is Purolator ONE? If so, this is VERY convenient news! #5116723 05/26/19 08:35 PM

New member here. I have enjoyed learning a lot from this site, but have never thought of anything I could contribute til know so finally joined. I have searched high and low in southern Ontario for Purolator brand oil filters with no luck. I recently noticed that the Carquest Premium oil filter for my car. I use the longer version of the filter for the GM 3.8 in my Lesabre (Carquest 85036) and it looks just like photos of the Purolator ONE filter. It has the oblong slots instead of round holes above the ADBV. Although the photo on the box shows round holes. The other thing I noticed is that it makes similar efficiency claims that the Purolator ONE does and they even use a photo on the back of the Carquest package that is remarkably like that of the Purolator. Yes, I can order Purolator ONE's via Amazon.ca but they cost around $12 and up. I just got this Carquest Premium for $6.50 plus tax Canadian which I feel is a great price. In the US, the price differential may be inconsequential but up here, the Carquest is literally half the cost. Not sure if this was common knowledge, but thought I would share for anyone with less than idea access to distribution of Purolators.

On RockAuto.com, there are Wix filters sold as "private label". They have the Carquest label. Same part numbers when you shop Carquest.

What are you really interested in? Price or performance?

I follow the Original Equipment Manufacturer's specified Oil Change Interval. For my car, it is 5,000 miles. I do not have a high performance engine. My car is not operated under heavy load or stressful conditions. I am not performing extended oil change intervals. My needs are minimal. I try to find the lowest prices.

Other people have better cars. High performance engines. They tow or race. They perform extended oil change intervals where they will use the filter for 10,000+ miles. They are willing to spend whatever the cost for an oil filter which meets their needs.

Decide for yourself what it is that you expect from an oil filter, and where your comfortable price point is.

On amazon.com in USA, the ACDelco & Motorcraft versions of your filter are very inexpensive.

a few years back(2014), I bought some of those "private label" wix filters from rock auto...
the filters i got were branded for "Big A Auto"... they went out of business back in... like '97...
I emailed Wix to ask their opinion...they wanted the date code off the filters, which were old enough they used a different format(turns out it was literally the Julian date, and 2 digit year)... one we got it all ironed out, the said to definitely NOTuse them... they give their filters a 5 yr shelf life... these were about 17yrs old...

luckily, i was only out about $6.

Thanks for the information. I did not know about a 5 year shelf life.

What was the quoted efficiency on the box? Welcome to the forums. grin2

Good find, never seen anyone go out of there way for a Tear-o-lator but then again I did not post here during their heyday. The pureones were supposed to be better than the normal WCOD, right?

The P1 was the leader of the pack. The P1 was also the high efficiency darling of BITOG.

The Classics were well liked and tears were found but not to the degree of the P1.

I still find it odd that someone would say they do not a high performance car and so just want to buy the cheapest filter possible.when for the price of a gallon of gas difference you can buy a Fram Ultra that will double engine life shocked2

Double engine life, eh?

To the OP, welcome to Bitog.


if you stick around and read a lot of the posts here, you'll see that there isn't much love for Purolator filters. They were referred to as terolators because of all the tears found in a good percentage of the filters.

They have come out with their new line, but many of us OCD types have moved onto better filters. Most of the love is for Fram Ultras.

In Canada the best place to buy them, if you aren't cross border shopping is from Rockauto.com. You need to buy multiple filters 4-6 since shipping will be between $8-12 (approx). Also use the 5 pct rockauto code to save a little bit more.

It has been known for quite a while that Carquest filters are Purolator made. The CQ Red is the same as Purolator Classic, the CQ Blue is the same as the Pure One.
Prior to 2017, they were made by Frampion (when Champ and Fram were co-mingling), and prior to 2015-16, they were made by Wix.

I have a few Wix made CQ Blue left, but will not buy any Purolator made filter.

+1

Before I embrace the new Purolators, I want to see about 100 positive anecdotes on the part number I would be using. Which is not likely to happen. Then I would be more enclined to give them another try, while following Ronald Reagan’s advice “Trust but Verify”.
