I always use the PF52 filter in place of the PF47, when there is room to install it. It is has the same specifications as the PF47, but the larger capacity make it last longer. It will allow you to go farther between oil changes or to skip changing the filter at every oil change.

I bought this for my 04 GMC Envoy 4.2L this is what the store sold me in place of Bosch filter since they no longer carry them. The website as well said PF52 how ever in the middle of changing my filter the new one does not fit! It almost doesnt fit in to the original location. Then the screw size of the filter is considerably smaller than the filter I took off. I am hesitant to use these filters any more. This could be a rare event that was a mistake on one filter from AC Delco or it could be a classification problem on either end of Advance or AC Delco. Its not the stores fault. On the phone my store said they would make it right.

              Comments about ACDelco Original Equipment Oil Filter:

              Been using the Classic filters for years now, and I have never had one to fail. These filters are not the ecore filters with the plastic center tube and fiber end caps. The ecore filters would have a part number like PF52E. The E is for ecore. The Classic filters still have a metal center tube and metal end caps.

              The Classic and ecore filters are manufactured by Champ Labs in the USA. If they keep manufacturing the Classic, I will keep buying them. If ACDelco decides to do away with the Classic line, and use the cheaper made ecore, then I will quit buying ACDelco oil filters.

              Shop wisely with codes and Advance Auto out the door price is the best on ACDelco oil filters.

              Make sure this is NOT a PF52E

              Some parts stores are selling the PF52E as a replacement for the PF52. Open it in the store and look at the flange. The PF52E has plastic internal parts and is made in China. It has received bad reviews.

                The computer has been changed at the stores and on line for the 2007 Trailblazer L6 within the last 6 weeks.. The computer now calls for the AC PF 52...This oil fliter will not work.. It is to long and the hole is to small to fit on the engine.. In the past the computer called for the AC PF 61 which will work perfectly... I had to return the AC PF 52 to the store and exchange it for the AC PF 61..
