Comes out crushed every time

Comments about Mobil1 Cartridge Oil Filter:

I've been getting the Mobil 1 oil deals from Advance for the last 80,000 miles of my vehicles life and these come with the Mobil 1 Extended Life oil filter. I don't drive the car hard an change the oil every 10,000 miles as per Audi's recommened interval. However, every time I remove the Mobil 1 filter, it seems to have been crushed under hydraulic pressure. The element doesn't look like it has been breached and so I assume it's still filtering. It certainly isn't due to crushing on fitment; I have checked. My greatest worry is, if it's collapsing under the flow of oil then either it's not letting the oil through at a sufficient rate or it is inherrently weak. If the former, then what are the dangers of oil starvation within the engine. Considering that the filter is "guaranteed" for 15,000 miles I wouldn't expect it to look like it does after only 10,000 of gentle driving. If you search the internet, you will find this is a common problem.

    Comments about Mobil1 Cartridge Oil Filter:

    I use this filter and brand on all my oil changes. This filter lasts unlike any other that I have ever used. Mobil1 makes the best products for vehicles of all kinds. The only question I have about the filter is at the time of change, the filter seems to be in a compressed state when it comes out of the housing and I'm not sure why that is but it does seem to keep its filtration through a 5000 mile oil life though. The only thing that I think they could change about the filter is maybe to sturdy the housing of the filter element a little better to eliminate the compression of the filter.

        Made in china OEM copy. Overpriced by itself, but with the oil change special, not a bad deal.

        • Q:

          How does this fit a VW Passat? It does not appear to be a cartridge filter, so it won't fit in the oil filter housing. Is it possible to use this filter and not use the cartridge/housing?
