The new Purolator website also offers the Purolator Response Office (PRO), an e-mail plus telephone service to contact the Purolator ‘PROs’ to receive quick answers to most any filter-related question that might be asked by DIYers or service professionals.
The new website, www.purolatorautofilters.net, includes a wealth of information on:

Now part of the Bosch umbrella of automotive aftermarket products within NAFTA, Purolator’s advanced aftermarket filters include:
- PureONE and Purolator oil filters
