Good evening BITOG filter surfers. I just changed the oil on a coworkers 2008 Nissan Xterra with the 4.0 V-6 and removed this filter so I thought I'd cut it and share with the group. Unknown oil was used but my friend normally has this truck serviced by a local independent shop and he said he normally uses synthetic oil. Interval was approximately 8,500 miles but the oil change sticker was too bleached to read. No media tears but the ADBV was hard as a rock and didn't retain any oil. The media was exceptionally brittle as well. I put Napa Synthetic 5w30 back in and a TG7317 on. Look close at this one for the surprise... The close up of the junk on the media was actually potting material that was loose. The media was well bonded to the end caps but tore with even the lightest pressure. Louvers were well formed and open.
