2011 Oil Filter?

Just picked up a 2011 1LT today, and noticed that in the manual a PF63 is listed as the oil filter. I haven't been able to find any information on it anywhere (or compatible other brands). Typo in the manual and it should be a 48, or am I missing something? Dealer isn't open again until Monday, but I figured someone here would know.

Re: 2011 Oil Filter?

Wow, that is very interesting. What would be more interesting, is if the PF63 filter fits on the 2009-2010 Traverse. Then I would wonder what the difference is. Maybe a bigger filter, to give better flow?

Nowhere have we ever heard that the 2011 engine is any different than that found in MY 09 and 10. We need more info.

I can't find any info on it. I wonder if they made it smaller so it is easier to remove. Or did they change the angle so it doesn't make a mess when you take it off. Someone with a 2011 has to look and take a picture.

But the angle doesnt or wouldn't need to affect the actual filter...would it?

I'll take a picture and get it posted when I get a chance. It looks to be at the same angle as the 2010's, and the same size as well. Thanks to all who have responded so far.

This is interesting, has anyone tried to lookup the filter for dimensions for a comparison?

I tried to find the PF63 on the AC Delco website and it doesn't show anything.
