About to do first oil change....


Recommended Posts

Will be doing my 05 crew cab's first oil change within a week or so, and was just wondering if anyone can recommend a WIX (NAPA gold) filter. I would like to use something larger than the stock size, but I just dont know which NAPA gold to use.

 

I can get these easily at NAPA, but if I can find a Purolator Pure 1 filter....can anyone suggest a filter by that manufacturer as well.

 

Any help would be great

thx

Here's a link to the Purolator Pureone that fit the 99-02 model years. It's the equivilent size to a PF59 AC Many on the board use this filter because it is a larger canister.

 

PL25288

 

Here's a link to the Pureone that is the match for your truck

 

PL14006

 

It's basically the equivalent to the PF 44/46 that GM uses on the newer trucks, and has the smaller canister.

 

Either will do a fine job. I've run the Pureone filters on my trucks since 99, they seem to be a good product and that's what's on my 04 crew currently. If you live near an Advance Auto they are an easy find. IF not I'd say go with the AC/Delco.

Here's the older WIX part # (ie PF 59 replacement)

 

WIX 51522

 

Here's the newer WIX part # (ie PF 44/46 replacement)

I've been using the WIX 51042 on mine and I'm happy with it. I'm running Mobil 1 and changing every 5-6,000.

 

I used a Mobil 1 filter the first time because they were out of the WIX, but i think my oil stays cleaner with the WIX.

vroten - where the heck in africa do you live?? 

 

looks like there is a lion stalking you from the hill behind your truck!

 

 

 

 

That's the Golden Retriever. Nothing lion like about him.....he's a big chicken.
