Plenty of torn PureOnes reported. Only one other 25288 reported before yours. Filter Failure Spreadsheet (Link)

To be more specific... I've seen tearing on previous Classics that I installed. Hadn't seen any problems on the Pure One's I installed. This is the first. Now I'm concerned it is across their whole product line. Will post the Synthetic pix when I install. They claim a wire backed media.

Bring the unused purolators back to the store DONT use them anymore. You can bring them back just say you lost your receipt unless you still have it but if the receipt is from auto zone or advance the writing is probably worn off anyway. Don't take a chance! if a chunk of that torn media comes off and clogs something and your engine gets damaged its your problem even if you sue and win which is possible your time and being without that car is a pain in the neck.

No need to take back the three Purolator Synthetics he has. There have been no reported tears with the Synthetics, only with the Classics, PureOnes, Bosch Premiums, and Motorcrafts.

Used Purolators for years until the tear problems first began to be reported. Will not go back to them. FU exclusively since using my last EA from Amsoil.

Accurate and unbiased information. Best imo to ignore the trollish comments on PSL usage. OP, if you still have access to the manufacture date code, could you post it.

LOL, good luck with that. It's amazing that BITOG'ers continue to use them after ample evidence and correspondence with the company indicating a serious issue that has yet to be addressed. It reminds of the ecore users that continued to blindly trust the design in my epic ecore failure thread. Some people will never be convinced no matter how many failures are reported. I was a huge advocate of Puro's classic and P1 lineup. I can't do that any longer until substantial evidence comes forward proving this issue has been addressed.

I'd say that the Quality Manager who told us to buy new stock has lost some more of his credibility on this. And with him Purolator / Bosch whatever they call themselves in the US.
