Default Oil Filter Help!!!!

Hey All,

I hope this has not been asked here before, I looked and couldn't find anything. So here's my problem - I bought my 2008 Ram used at a chevy dealership, the dealer changed the oil and filter for the first time at 7400 miles, just before I bought the truck. This afternoon, I started to give my truck it's second oil change. The chevy dealer installed an ac/delco brand oil filter, which was next to impossible to remove, so when I finally got that filter off, I went to install the new Fram filter only to find the threads on the filter are too small. I watched the part store look up the filter and I made sure I got the right one. My engine is the 4.7L Flex Fuel. Could someone give me the correct mopar part number for this filter? Has anyone else had a similar experience? Thanks for you help in advance!!!

Looks like you have 2 different thread options 3/4 " thread or 22mm thread . Fram #'s are PH2 or PH16

Yup, 2008 was when they started using the metric threads on all the engines. Some were still built with the standard threads. Just have them cross reference the Delco number to whatever brand you prefer.

Thanks guys for the quick reply's. I will be passing by my local Dodge dealer tomorrow (1 1/2 hrs away) and get the correct Mopar filter. After looking at the Fram and ACDELCO websites, it seems, I have the 22mm threaded option. I might stop by my local advance auto parts store and see if they have the mopar branded filter. Again thanks so much!!!

If you have a local Amsoil distributer the part number for an extended change interval synthetic filter is "Absolute Efficiency Oil Filter (EAO48)"..This filter along with Amsoil oil you will not need to do the oil change again for up to 25,000 miles.

at the risk of hijacking the thread......

anyone know of any way to turn off the annoying chime that reminds you to change the oil every 2500 miles? I've still got 3 yrs of free oil changes left on my truck, so I'll bring it in every time it "dings" but when that runs out, I'll be doing it myself, and I won't be doing it every 2500 miles....

just curious...

I checked the Amsoil website thinking AK2500 made a mistake but what I found is crazy. The filter is up to 25000 miles and the synthetic oil between 17500 to 35000 miles. But I'm wondering, what guarantee is there that if I wait 15000 miles to do an oil change on their filter and oil that my brand new engine won't blow up?
