This filter was in service for 10,000 miles exactly. Two 5k runs on Valvoline Synpower 5w30. Vehicle is brothers new work vehicle or a 2015 GMC TERRAIN. I'd love to smack the idiot that decided to build the vehicle around the engine!


Damage is due to me as it took filter pliers to get filter off. Put a FU 10060 back on with Synpower 5w30 from the stash. Vehicle has 60k on it

Yeah, I'd say that's a definite yes.

He mentions that in his 2nd paragraph.

Looks good otherwise!

I always use a band filter wrench when taking filters off those cramped 3.6 GM engines, whether it be in a Terrain, Acadia, Equinox, etc. I use the band wrench for 99% of the filters I take off, various sizes of course. Filters pliers or the cup wrench you put on a ratchet.....NEVER. I find the band is alot easier and quicker.

Not sure what QB is. NAPA Gold is the same as Wix, but you probably know that.

I reckon QB = Quantum Blue hornets

I bought a number of CQ 84502 (NG 7502 equivalents) from Rockauto cheap for my wife's Mustang, most were WIX / Affinia, one is Frampion.

This is another dome end bypass design from Wix. Kinda odd our two vehicles in our family fleet take 7502 / 57502 / 85502 and 7899 / 57899 / 84899 which are both dome end bypass design in Wix manufacture.

Good luck smile

The filter was almost butted up against the cooling fan so band wrench doesn't help a bit

My pliers were $5 at Harbor Freight so I use them on Terrains instead of burning my skin off

I have a few mowers like this. Half the time you dent the can struggling to get the darn things off. No room!

Indeed. This badge costing ~$7 less than the QB badge, everyday price. Not as fancy or as many bright colors on the NAPA badge though. wink2

This application one of the applications using dome bypass. Removal damage aside, looks like the filter did it's job for the 10k mile oci/fci.

car51 piqued my interest when he noted the lousy filter location, so thought I'd look it up. Didn't find a youtube/video but found an excellent DIY by Paul's Travel Pictures for the 3.6L engine. As an aside, Paul's Travel Pictures does excellent DIY pages on oil/filter changes for many vehicles.

Don't know if it's as bad as the 2013 Escape 1.6L Ecoboost, perhaps. Looks like a pita nonetheless.
