PureOne filters are not flow restrictive ... at least the yellow PureOnes. Not sure about the old blue version ... might have been more so.

Is this true? Was it temporary thing? Another reason why i bought PP+ is because i do short OCIs. (4,000)


ALL Purolator Classics have metal end caps ... I have never seen or heard anything to say otherwise.


Yes Purolator Premium Plus L34875 for Mopar Severe service from Russ Knize's 1999 study.

Yes it seems, based on the pic, that at one time, the Puro Prem+ did have fiber endcaps. It seems that the very early 'knizefamily' part of the dissection dates back to 96.

The 1999 part of the study which starts "One weekend in early February of 1999" shows the Purolators with metal endcaps. So sometime before 99 at least some had fiber endcaps as best I can figure. Based on the 99 dissection the Purolator had metal endcaps, as it shows a 99 version of the Purolator with such.

But congrats on finding a Puro with fiber endcaps, and further props to Puro for improving the product. But, to answer the one posters's question, no Purolator filters are now made with fiber endcaps. Honeywell now appears to have the market cornered on that design.

Nice job on the PL14559. Cut open a Pure One PL24651 off my Grand Marquis the other day, with about 5500 miles on it. The can was jammed a bit so I used a screwdriver to pry it off the baseplate, and in the process I tore the ADBV. I then tried tearing the ADBV with my bare hands and I was surprised how easily it tore. The red silicone is very thin, flexible, and seals very well, so I suppose this lack of tear strength is not a real concern, but I throw it out there for thought and discussion.

I went to find the present Purolator Classic L34875 to verify it's present construction. It was not in stock so I contacted Purolator here was response.

Subject filter L34875 has metal end caps.

Kind Regards

Sounds like Purolator tried out cardboard end caps at one time, but obviously they probably realized it wasn't the best compared to metal end caps and now make them all with metal end caps.

Have you guys seen these short videos on Purolator's website that show that metal is better than cardboard? LOL

You're allowed to cut open filters in the kitchen?!

Excellent report. You got it bang on with respect to the wavy media. Just not lined up right, and obviously too long.

Great write up with excellent pics. I have a few PL14459s in the garage waiting for me and I've used countless numbers of them. I will continue to use them without a thought and recommended pureones to others.

Well, it's difficult to rebut that rigorous scientific study. I guess if my oil starts shooting bullets at my oil filter (?), I'll keep Purolater in mind.

Looks normal for the miles.I would do 2 OCI's on a PureOne oil filter.

Too bad the PureOne 24458 has been discontinued, it was the oversized Honda, Nissan, Mazda oil filter.
