Hello folks and good friend stopped over for oil change, as I took a half day, and cut two filters. This is a #3614 Pro Motive, didnt remember to photograph date code frown Filter was put on by me in early january, and along with a fill of QSGB 5w30 from my stash. Combo had 4,989 on it. Sorry to see the couple tears but oh well. Installed a jug of PYB 5W20 from my stash along with a Fram Tough Guard #3614 and told him to come back at 6,000 miles. Enjoy the pics and any questions please ask. Thank You [img]http://tinypic.com/a/3hgn6/1[/img] http://tinypic.com/m/iptphl/1http://tinypic.com/a/3hgn6/1

Think I am going to go on a mission and every Puro and made by Puro filter I find; I'll cut open regardless of miles/kilometers and cut open and post here. Purolator needs to fix this stupidity

Pro Motive is pretty common with quick lubes and cheap oil change deals. Not good. After the FL400S that was posted with torn pleats, I have switched to Wix.

I'll have a L14610 Puro Classic ready for dissection in the next few days after I change the Frontier's oil. I also have an unused L14610 I dissected last week and I'll snap some pictures of that one as well. I'll just need some help posting the photos when the time comes.

Mahzurrah!
Ugly! Poor Puro, seems that they are the only filter manufacturer being constantly victimized by these obscene 3-5k OCI's! shrug
