What is the life span of paint/primer?

I need to primer a wall. I had left over primer in 5 gal buckets from the first time I painted the walls. The buckets had a good seal and the primer still looks good, there's about 2-3 gals of primer in each bucket. This primer is about 5 years old, is it still good to use?

If it mixes up well it is probably still good.

Should be
You'll know if it's not when you try and mix it
