GM obviously moved the oil filter in the 2017s and buried it below some of the AC hoses and wiring. I needed three 1/2" drive extensions (one long and 2 short) to get the 24mm socket down to the cap. I just hit 1,000 miles and did my first oil change....Kudos to those who stated the oil initially shoots out of the drain plug.
I am confused on the proper oil filter. Based on the internet and checking multiple sources the I could not initially find an AC Delco filter....based on the websites recommendation I procured the Wix 57090. When I removed the filter cap, it was not the same filter...it was secured in the the filter cap with four plastic feet/prongs and has no o-rings like the Wix Filter. Based on the fact I always use AC Delco Filters and like that the filter is attached to the filter cap (makes it easier to remove being buried under the AC hose and wiring). So I assume that the O-Ring included with the WIX filter is for the filter cap, right?
After bouncing across a few FLAPS (Friendly Local Auto Parts Stores) websites; I found the AC Delco PF2257G which matched the filter I removed my 2017 V6 Gasser and looks the same, but other sites say it does not fit my vehicle.
So FYI to the 2015/2016 owners....on the 2017 they buried the cap so you need a step stool to lean over to see it just above the exhaust headers on the drivers side....
