It's rated for 5k miles, so it'd be a fine filter.

eh, not a fan of Fram and Purolator cartridges. They're usually too long and buckle in service.

Stick with Hengst, Mahle, or Mann.
Mann HU 612/2x
Mahle OX 401d
Hengst E611H

The OEM ACDelco PF2257G is made by Hengst

Order arrived from RockAuto.com , this morning .

Question has been asked ( I think ) about the dimensions of the Fram filter .

AC Delco Fram
Height 3.762" 3.762"

Diameter 2.251" 2.252"

Close enough I would say .

I discovered I have some Mobil 1 filters , also . But I had rather not open them up , unless some one really needs the info .

Only have the 1 AC Delco left . May have a few more Purolator filters stuck back some where .
