This is from a 2014 Ford police interceptor sedan (Taurus). It was in use 3,000 miles with 5w20 Napa synthetic blend. Car has 75,000 miles on it.
Refilled with Mag1 blend 5w20 and a Napa Platinum filter

May not be a Motorcraft, but, like Motorcrafts, most (if not all) Napa Proselects are made by Purolator.

I stand corrected. I should have noticed the louvers. My bad.

Since when? ProSelect has been a Wix made filter for a long, long time (like forever).

The Proselect was the same line as the old Supertech and current MicroGard from O'Reilly Auto.

I was not crazy about the media on the Wix made ST filters after seeing how easy it tore with very little pressure.

Never have seen a torn Denso oil filter media in 50+ years. Originally Nippon-Denso.

I wonder why they produce junk like this? Don't they realize that they make totally useless and harmful product?

Doesn't mean that the media couldn't have been changed once Mann+Hummel took over WIX.

+1. Screwdriver driven through to loosen it? That would probably create a tear... shrug

Guessing maybe poked a hole to drain it? Mann + Hummel has owned WIx for a couple years now, hope their junk media isn't being used in the Gastonia plant now.
