AC PF2257G Any good? #5137787 06/18/19 05:48 PM

I just bought a 2019 Colorado with V6. So far, I like the truck and plan to change the oil and filter at 1000 miles to inspect the factory cartridge filter for dirt or metal. I was going to use a factory Delco filter for now, in case of any warranty issues. The factory Delco filter looks very undersized for a large truck and the filter media seems very thin. Will this tiny element last one year or 6000 miles without clogging? I had planned on changing the oil and filter once a year. Now, I wonder about changing this little "sewing thimble" filter every 6 months.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hengst makes good filters, including your PF2257G smile

Another good filter is the Mann HU 612/2x

Fram just recently came out with an Ultra for that application. It might be worth trying

When it comes to AC Delco cartridge oil filters, when they're made by Hengst-there's no need to look at anything else. Including the Ultra!

OFCIs in general have been getting longer from the OEMs. And yet filters have been getting smaller, slowly, overall from the OEMs. Contributing factors (engine design, lubricant formulations, product manufacturing abilities, and generally clean running nature of today's engines) simply mean taht engines today don't need giant filters and super-short OCIs. What is your presumption here? That GM purposely put out a product that won't successfully provide a desirable outcome? That is sold you a truck with a filter too small to do the job, and in doing so they risk increased warranty claims? It's your supposition that the filter will clog after 6k miles?

It'll be fine. Quit worrying.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
