does it really seat up fine and all? I know the 3800's all use a delco pf47 oil filter.
Looks like the 4.3 uses the pf52.

Actually, looking at a 2000 blazer, it changes the oil filter number depending on if its 2 wheel drive or 4wheel drive. Confused2

Alright answered myself.
The 4wheel drive filter is exactly the same except its 4.828" tall.
The 2 wheel drive is only 3.404" tall.


BAM!
More research proves that the 2 wheel drive blazer and a 3800 use the same part number oil filter.

So if there's no clearance issues (there's not) it'll fit right in!

looks like I'm using the pf52 from now on!



(Talk about thinking out loud)

Big Thumbs Up

What is the benefit from the longer oil filter? More filtration area and a little more oil? If so, pf52 might be my choice for now on also. I wonder why GM wouldn't have done to begin with though.

Been using a PF52 for quite some time. Never had a clearance or flow problems. Big Thumbs Up

More filtration Wink

I would think if the longer K&N fits with no issues, the delco would be fine. The K&N has a nut on the end of it.....

I've always been using the longer filter. More filtration media.

I've seen quite a few impalas besides mine that have really dark oil even when changing at every 3,000 miles with a low mileage Imp. Would this filter switch help with this??

^ Their is a good chance it would yes.

Why their oil is so dark @ 3K miles is beyond me.My oil at 3K still looks pretty good,

This 'longer' oil filter seems like a good idea that i will try on my next oil change.

Dark oil isn't necessarily a bad thing. If the oil is getting dark, that means that the detergents in the oil are doing their job and keeping engine parts clean.


FWIW, if anyone was wondering, the 3400 can also use the PF-52 or Mobil part number M1-201.

I learn new things all the time while on the site. You guys are the bizness. Next oil change, I will pick up the pf52. If I can get one on the Alero, it's gonna have the same filter.

I'm 4000 miles past due on an oil change, when I do change it I think I might use Mobile1 oil and filter. BTW are Motorcraft oil filters good? that's what I have on there now.
