Have not had any trouble with it. this time when i pulled the oil filter out it looked like a squashed. All used 5/30 gm dous.
Any thoughts
I have had them collapse.. check the inside of the filter and see if it is plastic. Those are the ones I had issues with. They were AC Delco. Now I always look in the filter to make sure it is metal inside not plastic. Cost me an engine.
