Does anyone know what date range torn filters where produced?
Again, a repost due to my previous reply that was lost.

Check BITOG for info on these oil filters. I recall reading a discussion on this topic a while back on their forum.

Were they used or new filters? The faulty filters typically tear after a few thousand miles.
