Default 2.0 Oil Filter on 2.5?

I ended up getting a few Purolator PL14660 from advanced auto parts because they only had 3 PL14612 filters in stock. They had a good sale, so I wanted to stock up.

Is it ok to use the PL14460 on the 2.5 motor? I have read several threads about this particular filter, but I did not come across anyone stating no to use it on 2.5 engines. Apparently... the PL14460 doesn't have a ADBV and the PL14612 does.

I have a PL14660 on my motor now and all seems well. Fitment wasn't an issue and there are no exhaust clearance issues. It seems like the PL14460 could be better since the filter is larger which in turn means larger filter media.


Is it safe to use the PL14460 that's meant for 2.0 and 2.2 motors on my 2.5?

To add to the oil filter questioning... If the stated filet above is not suitable for the 2.5,.are there any other larger capacity filter for the 2.5?

It will fit, just different part numbers. I wouldnt imagine a huge difference if your not taking your car to the track everyday for 3000 miles. Im sure someone else can chime in.

My push mower has a larger oil filter than my car and that is stupid. Its not because the filter on the mower is bigger than it needs to be, either. The more capacity the more dirt it can hold without changing the pressure diff. across the filter and the longer it will flow in the case of something catastrophic failing. There is only good to be had from a larger filter.

Go back to advanced auto and ask for a detailed list of specs for each filter. They should be able to print that out for you and you can compare side by side. It will tell you things like max flow, bypass pressure, and burst pressure (fun!).

I'm assuming ADBV is a bypass valve? Somebody who has more experience with these motors internal workings might be able to tell you if that is going to be an issue.

ADBV= Anti Drain-Back Valve. Totally separate from the bypass valve. IF you had a car where the top of the filter (threaded side) was pointing down or at least horizontal, this would keep the filter from draining whenever the engine was stopped---then needing to be refilled before the engine could get oil pressure---really bad on startup. Given that the filter is hanging down on our motors and can't drain (unless you invert the car, at which point I think you might have other more pressing issues), I don't think it's something you need to worry about.
