Directions for changing the oil on the 5.3L.

Any suggestions or comments on things I can change, just let me know.

Please note. The pictures in the above Oil Change walk through depict an Oil Filter PF-52. This is the incorrect filter. The PF-52 is not compatible with the 5.3L V8.

Valid Filters are PF-59, PF-44, PF-46

A few quick notes for you '07+ GMT900 owners....

--The older, larger filters (PF59's) will not work. The threads are different. You will have to use the PF48.
--You will need a 13mm wrench to remove the drain plug.
--The drain plug is accessed from the passenger (right) side. Oil filter is still on the driver's (left) side.
--The plusses of changing oil on these are that the oil does not splash all over the skid plate.
--Bad news is the oil filter is a real pain to remove. The front sway bar and the oil pan gets in the way. The preferred removal tool is one of the cup type oil filter wrenches.
