This filter is from my 2018 Duramax. This is the original spin-on filter with a total of 8,000 miles. There is a small amount of metal flakes in the filter and only enough clutch friction material to discolor the media. I see no reason to change this filter more often than 25,000 miles. The magnet that mounts between the filter and trans body had a small amount of dark material stuck to it - probably a couple grams.

Yeah looks like a long term filter.

My understanding is that most transmission spin-on filters by the OEM are still rock catchers. Better rock catchers than the pan filters, but still around 60-80 microns. That's why I replaced mine with an XG7317.

When I had a 2009 Chevy Duramax with the Allison 1000 transmission I would change the trans. filer every oil change about 10,000 miles cheap insurance.

There, I fixed all of that for you.

I changed the spin-on trans filter on my Dads 2016 LML at 31k with 2073 hours. The magnet had some fuzz on it, but nothing excessive. I haven’t cut the filter open yet, but if I do I’ll post pics.

I checked on Allison’s site and this is what the fluid and filter calculator gave me:

How many hours on your L5P?

And yet what is percentage of failed transmissions? Not very high.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

This filter is the filter I mentioned earlier, 31,072 miles and 2,073.9 hrs on the truck and filter both.

This is the second spin-on filter change from the same truck with 45,922 miles and 3,149.9 hours. (14,850 miles and 1,076 hours on this filter) Along with this filter change I drained the transmission pan and refilled it with 7.4 quarts of Dexron VI. The factory fluid still looked pretty good despite having a lot of hours on it. I'll probably do another spin-on filter change along with another pan drain and refill in another 30-45K miles.
