  • So it's alright to use a pf63 instead of a UPF63r? Our blazers manual only mentions the UPF63r. All the dealers in my area dont use the filter listed in the manual either. I'm unable able to find out the difference, besides the upf63r doesn't burst as easily under high pressure. I dont trust dealers in my area to do an oil change. They only threaded in my drain plug on my impala a couple of turns, leaked huge puddle in my garage. So I'm just following the manual so I can prove I put the filter in gm says to so if I have to have warranty work they cant deny any claim. I can easily see the dealers saying your x problem is not covered because you have not been using the filter that's recommended for your vehicle. They dont tighten oil drain plugs so yea.

The manual I downloaded from My Chevrolet says it should be an AC Delco PF63e (GM Part# 19330000). This is for the v6.

When I looked up UPF63r on Amazon, it said it does not fit my v6 Blazer. But the again it also said the PF63e didn’t fit ?
I guess yours has a different one listed because it's a 2019. My 2020 manual never mentions pf63e for v6 or any motor.

Yea I did mine. It had a different looking filter than the pf63e I use on my impala, it didn't have plastic core, felt heavier. But it did say pf63e on the side of filter in red letters. I put upf63r back on per owners manual.

Got free oil changes for life at the dealer when purchased. They said to come in every 5000 miles, so that is what I will do.
That sounds nice. I guess if they do a good job, and use high quality oil, and filter. You would just have to avoid all the up sell tactics.

I went in for my first free oil change on my Impala and they just hand treaded in the drain plug a few threads. Had a huge puddle of oil all over my garage floor wider than the car. I called to complain and service manager said for me to drive it with a loose oil plug, low on oil 45 miles back to the dealership so they could fix it. I told him I would redo the oil change myself before the car goes back on the road. And I will never let them touch my car again.
