Default Look at this oil filter

Several oil changes ago I noticed the paint on the base of my Tempest oil filter was strangely deformed. Never happened before and couple filters after there was no indication of similar orange peel. I still have one oil filter from that batch will put it in next month and watch...
I change lubricating oil every 50 hours on average and oil filter every 100 hours or so. Can somebody give me a suggestion what caused this paint warp? Rocketbob come back

Hi Vlad-
I had a similar rough texture show up on on of my last Tempest filters too. Didn't notice anything abnormal when I put it on but it was pretty obvious when I took it off. Not sure what's up with them. Maybe a bad paint/finish on a recent batch?

Try heating near the top of the filter with a heat gun. See if it does the same wrinkle. It might be a batch of cheap paint that can't handle 200 degrees.

Default Filter change

50 hrs on oil but 100 on filter? I was always told you should change the filter every time you change the oil. Is that true? I sure would like to change the filter every 100

Thumbs down filter

As you can see by logo on filter is not a tempest product any more now its poor guality and high shipping cost in my opinion.

Huh? Looks like a Tempest filter to me. What am I missing?
