I am always looking to learn how to work on my vehicles because I enjoy it and it saves alot of money. If you know how to do other things please post them. I imagin that you have helped alot of people out. Thank you again.

    the pf44 was indeed superseded by the pf46. I am aware this thread is a few years old, Good write up; The pf46 is the same filter used on my camaro, It's fine to use on the 6.0 lq9 since its designed after the ls1 but imo it wouldn't be a bad idea to take advantage of the deeper oil pan on the lac' and use a larger oil filter, something like a napa gold (wix) 1522(fits gm 5.3,5.7,6.0 etc), the ac delco equiv. would prob. be a pf59 but those are very hard to find since they were phased out and are being substituted by gm with the pf46 lol.

    Do you have to replace the oil drain plug gasket as well? When i had my 07 tahoe i used to change the oil myself and would tighten the drain plug very well but occasionally it would leak very and i mean very small drips of oil every now and then. Should the gasket be changed or replace the drain plug with a new one every time?

    Re: Escalade Oil Change w/photos

    I just bought a lot of Pennzoil 10W-40 to replace the oil in my escalade, should I go return it for the 5W-30??


    edit: just read through the manual, 10W-40 is NOT recommended for the 2004 Escalade ESV....taking it back and replacing with either 5W-30

    Great write up....I just bought an 06 Escalade, and I always to all the work on my vehicles....just do not trust some of those so-called mechanics. NOw I can proceed to the 1st oil change with confidence, the right filter and the correct tools....saved me at least three times of crawling under the truck. Thanks
