Oil filter cutter, like this. Many available on eBay and Amazon.How are you cutting the oil filters open so you dont get metal shavings inside?? If i am deciding how the engine is doing I dont want metal chunks to wonder where they came from.
Me too. I had run through a bunch of Wix filters consecutively and then didn't even realize they changed until I saw photos posted here, looked at one I had and saw the louvered center tube.Fram and Supertech Ecore from here on out
Defective like media tears or something else?I had several defective wix filters last summer. Never have I seen that in my life much less in 1 summer
Probably leaking crimp seal on the base end. Seen that reported a few times.Defective like media tears or something else?
Sheesh, glad I moved away from Wix when I did then.Probably leaking crimp seal on the base end. Seen that reported a few times.
So since Mann & Hummel owns Purolator and is now manufacturing filters in china, Mexico, Vietnam, and The USA under the Purolator brand.Wow! So it would seem,the majority here are leaving wix.you don't like mahn Hummel. I am on this as well obviously my post..corporations ruin everything.pie and participate is child labor,outsource too communist regimes who hate America .then sell it back too us
Owned by Mann & HummelI buy Purolator filters.
They're made 20 minutes from my house.
Yah this whole thread is Moot. Just like Champion labs who makes K&N and I do believe Mobile 1 they are made in Korea. It’s a business model that was made because labor and the tax burden is to high in America.You don't say?
I just have no idea what you're saying in reference to my post.Yah this whole thread is Moot. Just like Champion labs who makes K&N and I do believe Mobile 1 they are made in Korea. It’s a business model that was made because labor and the tax burden is to high in America.
Yes I get it. purolator is now assembled in Mexico, Vietnam, poland, and America just like WIX is. That’s why this thread is moot. One oil change you might have a filter made in Mexico the next USA then China all made by purolator. That’s how Mann and Hummel work. They have factories all over the world. So it really doesn’t matter where it’s made anymore.I just have no idea what you're saying in reference to my post.
I buy the USA made Purolator (Bosch, CQ, etc) filters.
The factory is still 20 minutes from my house, even if the sign out front has changed. I don't care which conglomerate currently owns them - if I can buy a filter made in my home town I will.
Apparenty it matters to some people. Not everyone thinks the same.They have factories all over the world. So it really doesn’t matter where it’s made anymore.
