This filter did around 3k. I have never used a mobil1 filter before because I honestly think they are over priced. But I had heard good things on here from them and it was between that and fram which I'm not a fan of either. The 2011 honda crv kept sounding like it was having dry starts. I went and checked everything and came to the conclusion it was a faulty anti drainback valve. Cut it open and sure enough. Note the metal flakes on the filter as well.

I agree that you paid a premium for a bad filter. Kudos to your investigation to prevent more damage.

You should contact the manufacturer and send them the info and pics.

Disappointing. Mobil 1 Oil Filters now use the same baseplate as Fram and Super Tech for my application. M1-103A vs ST 4967. Mobil 1 Oil Filters are over priced IMO. Nearly $11 for blended media with the same build quality as their $2.97 discount filter. I'd rather use the Super Tech E-Core for a normal OCI and save the $8.

Is that new stock or old stock? Someone here mentioned Mobil-1 filters have changed suppliers and many have Ecore cages.

Sure, but what would they do? Refund me 12 buck because the filter was still in that year warranty?

They might send you a new filter store credit or a new filter in the mail. Send them pics and receipt-proof of purchase.

All I could tell you is it was bought in January. Is there a way to tell?

This is exactly what should be done, rather then posting here first. Unless of course you don’t want them to see the failure mode?

Our Governor has ordered all non-essential workers to stay home and remain indoors AMAP. So I am avoiding large crowds at our Walmart, my favorite place to have a peek at new Mobil-1 filters.
The main roads here now look like Sunday morning at 6:00AM...... hardly no one moving about. It could be May b/4 I inspect new Mobil-1 filters there.

I was just on there website however the contact us was only for businesses and wouldn't let me submit the issue. If someone has a link to the customer service I'll report it up.

Why didn't you just use a $5 Honda filter?

They didn't sell them at wal-mart. I usually buy filters for my vehicle online or wherever there is a sale. This was what we picked up at walmart for my mother's vehicle.

Has there ever been another found like this on a Champ lab/ Mobil1? Probably got caught in a machine somewhere and still got installed. It happens. They may send a new one if a picture is sent to them. Is there some part of the filter missing in the pics?

I didn't upload the housing and the base plate.
