This came from a 99 Caravan that I don't drive much. The oil was changed but the filter is 1.5 years old. The media was clean and reasonably pliable although I did crack a portion when I was prying the pleats apart. I was going to use it for a few more months but the engine has developed a start up rattle so I removed it earlier than planned. Anti Drain Back Valve appears to be in good shape. There was no debris inside the can but cutting it open with a hacksaw does mess things up a bit. You will notice the media is a little deformed and what you can't see it that the top and bottom end caps are not parallel. If you were to place the filter on a flat surface and rotate it, the top end plate would appear to wobble up and down. The filter is 4 inches tall on one side and 3 7/8 inches on the other. Noticeable with the naked eye. Overall, a little unimpressed. We'll see if the new filter [cheap Chinese junk] cures the occasional start up rattle.
