    So I goes out to change my oil yesterday...

    asamek, I feel for ya'. Something as simple as an oil change and a mechanic has gotta' screw it up. Happens to me every time. I try to keep the 'mechanics' as far away from my vehicles as possible. I had a fuel pump go out on a 1997 Chevy Tahoe at 125K miles as expected. It's in the tank and I...

    Leaky purolator filter

    Just thought I would check on this... Did you oil the filter gasket before installation ?

    Purolator PureONE 14459 cut open

    Looks like you could get more distance on this filter/app combination. I would extend OCI if you think the oil can handle it (probably).

    Whats up with Warren?

    To me it means it's 'not' PP or PYB or MC. I sure it's fine for conservative OCI. I don't think I would take it out to 10K unless perhaps it's in a Honda. I believe I get better stuff at lower prices. If that was 'not' true then I would be using it.

    Oil changed every race -- What about the filter?

    I'd worry about the big chucks during a run. Maybe that's why I've seen some racing filters with a screen on bypass valve. Wear will be detected during teardown but something coming apart during a run could be dangerous.

    Q HPower "vs" PP?

    When QS Q-HP came out the OEM's that were claimed to spec it included Ferrari, Mazarate, Porsche, et al. Now this was 'not' for 10W30 so the base could be different on this grade but these spec's lead me to believe it's Shells XHVI base which I believe is used in PP. My understanding is PP...

    Mann WP1240 cut open

    Yea,my first reaction was that the filter was spent, all used up. Not over used though. I was wondering about it being only 4K but diesel makes more sense. Yr right ...candidate for larger filter if OCI >4K.

    I would guess the right one is Purolator based on the media but they don't use metal clips on media.

    YB convert!!

    I'm a big fan of the YB stuff as likely GrpII+ makes it same class as a blend in my mind. I'd use it to 5K miles. I luv the PP at the right price but haven't seen it in awhile. PP seem like a waste for my 5K OCI warranty app, out of warranty I'd take it to 7.5K.
