D_R_C I donít blame you for one minute. If you have some personal experience with a certain filter, I would do the exact same as you. Like I have said after the Mobil 1 filters are gone I will probable go to a AC Delco with a one time use of the Baldwin just to see how that goes. I really donít understand how a anti drain valve works in our Duramaxís as if the filter is pointed up like our are, wouldnít the filter always be filled? Seems to me the anti drain valve would only apply if the filter was up side down so when the car/truck is off the filter would drain back to the sump. Iím probably wrong but that is the way I see it. If there is something Iím missing, please let me know. Iím happy this is a discussion and not the usual fight I see most post degrade to. If you have some knowledge to share, Iím all ears!

My 2 cents worth-- I use only AC Delco 2232 filters and Rotella 15/40 plain ole oil. Have on all four Dmax's and put on average 180K on them. Now have a 2019 3500HD WT and it has same in it. Change it every 4-6K and fuel filter every other oil change. Does it clatter? not as loud as a powersmoke or Cummins. Hell, its a diesel-- not a gasser.

Moregrip, change it any way you want-- its your truck and money. As for changing weight in the winter-- its gets colder than a well diggers ass here in north Texas and summers are around 100+ and my oil still works just fine. Never had any failures and I haul horses a lot around Texas and Oklahoma.
Have fun with your truck.

Defective anti drain back check valves on the spin-on allowing the oil to drain down, results dry starts with 0 oil pressure for several seconds.

On the canister the filters they are to short compared to OEM not making contact with the anti drain back keeping it closed to keep the oil from draining backdown same 0 oil psi dry starts for several seconds.

Hopefully the Mobile Ones are of better quality than WIX.

Not the Duramax filter. Wix had a contract because of the glass media Mobile One wanted to extend their drain cycle. The brown / gray / black glue you see run down on the media is called plastisol also used for the sealing surface in light duty air filters.
Any good filter will work as long as you adhere to the recommended mileage / hours for oil change.

DRC the anti drain back valve it the orange silicone looking gasket in the filter. The oil in the filter keeps it closed, when the engine starts the oil flow from the oil pump pushes the anti drain back valve up allowing the oil to flow out and through the media into return in the center tube of the filter.

Iím 51 years old and have been using Mobil 1 oil and filters for 3 decades or more and never had a oil or filter related problem. Iím sure Baldwin makes a great filter and if you will give me the product/part number for our trucks I will probably try one. I still have 5 Mobil 1 filters to get through. I bought a bunch for my 2017 truck I got rid of and the parts store let me swap them out for the ones that fit the Duramax, so I will use all of them. I have a 2014 Chevy SS that is modified (supercharger, long tube headers and a bit more stuff) and when I dropped it off to get all of that installed 4 years ago it had a Royal Purple filter on it. Long story short they told me to use a factory oil filter after that one was done. I just had another tune done to the car a few months ago and I ask that shop, which was different from the first one, about the filter and they too recommended using a factory filter. This reply is not to change anybodyís mind about what they do, so please donít drag me into that debate, Iím only sharing my experience and what I do. Moregrip I was happy to read your post and see that there is someone out there that is into maintaining their truck as much as me. Synthetic oil changes before 6K, Mobil 1/factory filter (and maybe a Baldwin), fuel filter and tranny filter change before 10K and keep it washed and waxed. Iím sure it will last as long as I want it to. I would use Mobil 1 oil but Iím only going to run 15w40 oil, Rotella T6 is locally available but I hear Schaeffer 9000 oil is good too. When Iím done with the dealership oil changes and I swap to the T6 if the engine sounds good I will continue to run it. I also hear that the typewriter noise sometimes comes and goes with different types of oil. I guess I will see later this year. BTW thanks for the props on my truck, nicest one I have ever owned.

Yep, I learned that many years ago, but when its defective and allows oil to drain back down in other words the oil in the filter does not keep it closed.
Put a new AC Delco oil filter the 0 oil pressure and dry starts no longer existed.
Wix/Napa filters are the only ones that I've had issues with since about 1968.

Ya, by removing that will allow very easy access to 3 zerk fittings the one more in the middle on the steering support passengers side is the hardest. The other 2 one on each side on the crossover for steering.
Probably incorrect wording but I'm sure anyone that's service theirs should know what which 2 I'm referring to.

I've replaced that plastic shield once, I remove it everytime I lube.
Just remember to get that nipple pulled back in that hole that supports the lower radiator hose.
