I just picked up a 2011 Traverse for my wife yesterday, and in the manual it calls for a PF63 filter. I can't find any information on it (or any cross-reference to other filter brands). The previous filter used on these is the PF48. Anyone have one or changed oil on one that knows the scoop?

Currently only available thru GM parts, no one else can match that number...

Caution - Do not take any chances and try to use a PF48. More and more of these newer engines are very sensitive to what filters are used and using the wrong one can lead to engine damage. If the filter maker does not list a filter for the application, DO NOT USE one from another model or year that you may think fits.

Thanks for the info. I probably won't have to change the oil for the first time for at least a month, so hopefully it will become more widely available by then. Even better will be if there is an Amsoil equivalent by then.

I did a cross reference and there isn't any listed from AMSOIL, Wix or Donaldson to start with. I'm sure in time one will become available, just have to wait until then.

Like elcamino stated above, these newer designs on the engines and the VVT and such is playing a new role in the way the oil system functions. The Acadia is one of them. AMSOIL had a filter out for it but there were issues with it and the Acadia's oil system so they pulled it. If there is no listing by a filter manufacture then they do not make a filter that will work.

I crawled underneath and took a look at the label on the filter, it says "Replace w/PF48" so I guess I'll use the Wix Filter cross-referenced on the Amsoil site.

Mobil1 now has the M1-212 listed for the 2011 Traverse. It's about an inch longer than the previous filter.

FYI - the dealerships are starting to get them in, I picked up a PF63 yesterday. The only reason the parts guy had even ordered any was because I had asked about them.

A different application but shows the variations in size and quality for a specific application between brands of filters. I have heard a few people who cut delco filters open and were not impressed.. they did not hurl like when they saw a fram opened up but not as good as they expected..

After opening up a OEM purflux filter I took off my car I was amazed at the quality and could see why the guys in Modena chose it. It has the zig zag pleats.

This is from the delorean guys but a good shot of a Purflux.

The LS718 filter is the cross reference for the PF48 and has more filter area than a PF63 due to the from the herringbone pleats.

The PF63 is just a longer version of the PF48, as long as it is a "AC Delco" filter, it will not void your warrenty, OR IN ANYWAY DAMAGE THE ENGINE.

The change is to help get your oil life to match your oil life monitor by adding filter medium. Change your oil at 3-5k, and use the right parts just to keep coverage.

I just did my oil change on my Silverado and got a Wix 57045 which is the same as a PF63. About an inch longer than the stock and comes down level with the oil pan. Napa should have the 7045 NAPA or Wix 57045 in stock for that vehicle or be able to get it within a day.

Just go to somewhere like GM Parts and search the number there. Many of the dealers still haven't got the proper filters in...  :nonod:

 

Here's the subgroup for the Traverse, and then just look under Engine -> Transaxle -> Engine Parts -> Oil Filter
