Angry Dirty New Oil Filters

I bought 3 Pulorator Microsopic PureOne filters at Pepboys. They were out of stock, so they had to order from the warehouse. oh well, after almost of a week of waiting, i finally picked up the filters. but to my surprise, the oil filters's holes and top surfaces were COVERED with DUSTS!!!!


Should I return them and get OEM filters ??? (i remember that they have plastic seal on the opening.) I cleaned most of dusts with Q-tips, but what if there are dusts inside of the cans??? that's what i worry the most...

Yeah, pep boys never carries the Pure One filter that the book says goes to the WRX, so i took home the next number up and measured it and compared it to a Amsoil i had, it's a direct fit and bigger than the PureOne that is listed.
I can't remember the exact number, but i believe the one listed in the book is a PL14459, and i used PL14460.

14460 is the correct one. I guess i have to rephrase my word "dust". They are more like gunks. They are black like oily dusts. i don't know... maybe i'm too paranoid.... but i want cleanest possible oils for my car. thanx

I wouldnt use em. Whole point of them is to filter **** out, not add it and then pump dirty oil throughout the engine and filter it back out.

Collect a bunch of dust, throw it down your oil fill tube, and let us know how things work out, tia.

take them back, Whether or not it will cause a problem is irrelevant. you paid for a new filter, and it should be new, not dusty.

Blow it off before you install it.

Where is common sense?

And your car doesn't live in a clean room.

conditions that i desribed is way more serious than normal dusty filters that pep boys sell on their shelves. I ended up returning them and bought 12 packs of OEM filters at my local dealer for only $60. oh well, it was good deal. no complain here.

I use the OEM filters. At least that way I can almost keep up with the part number switching.
