To each their own but in my case, an Advance was close by and then you can use online discount for like 40% off and see the thing in your hand before it gets to your house and find out it's the wrong thing.

Advance only shows one option for your car....







No not commited, but a good reference. Hmmmm I'll check for this 40% discount and look into Advance, but dambit I hate dealing with them, I always get a messed up part, part not right etc. and if I had my actually filter in hand to go and to show and get a certain match then I wouldn't be here rambling about MN3, MN7,M13,M15 lol. AAH FML! :btruestory:


And how in the hell did it go from trans maintenance to waxing seats with vaseline :dontknow: ya'll crack me up :btruestory:



That's how we are. :P


But anyways, if it was me. I think I would just order the wix and call it a day. They are usually a decent brand and it says "includes gasket"



But if you are interested in Advance here are some codes:
BIG30 $30 off $75
BIG50 $50 off $200
RETMENOT123 ($10 off $30) and ($20 off $50) and ($30 off $100)

No problem. I always use those advance codes. I find my self buying more to save more if that makes sense.


Like I'm going to spend $20 so why not throw in 3 oil filters and make the total $32 and then only pay $22. So I got 3 oil filters for $2.

My motto is you can never have too many oil filters. Especially when you have 3,4,5 3800's running around.

Rogue (don't know your first name, lol): As I said in my PM to you, get a Wix from O'Reilly's. Also, all 4T65E's (and IIRC 4T60E's for that matter) use the same filter and pan. Any filter listed for your car will work, but I prefer Wix.

Lol it's Josh, alright I was looking to much into part numbers I reckon, and didn't know if all the transmissions (4T60 and 4T65E-65E-HD) had interchangeable filters, just figured certain filters for certain tranny's. But now I know, and thanks everybody :beerchug:

I do agree on the Wix, I am not wanting to recommend Dex6 for you.... If this was a new trans or a fresh rebuild I would..

But I would recommend using Autozones Coastal Dex III compatible... I have never had any issues with Coastal trans fluid... My 95 Bonneville has had Coastal for 5 years now( have not changed it Due to my massive trans cooler )... Fluid is still cherry red...

Hmm, Thanks Jr, I might have to look into the Coastal DEX III. This is the brand that you trust the most over Amsoil, Mobil and the elite name brands?

I am at 193,000 and still going... never used synthetic trans fluid in it... Just have that cooler to keep temps down...

With your miles adding up I am not sure I would recommend the the synthetics for you.... But it may be worth a shot..

Dex III at the time had a pretty good additive package and in some transmissions was said to be life long.... The Dex6 has more additives and tends to be a bit thinner viscosity wise...


I am a fan of the Coastal Dexron tho..
