Actually, there are two possible filters for the Encore with the LUV engine :
PF2257G / GM# 55594651 (Hengst Housing)
PF2263G / GM# 25195785 (UFI Housing)
Again, you can simply read the GM Tech Note from the original post to verify this.
If I followed your instructions for the (LUV) I would have the wrong filter because mine has the UFI housing.

Hi, Just wanted to say thanks for the important info posted on this thread, and also to ask for a little help concerning the 2019 Encore Preferred I purchased about a month ago. It has the LUV engine and the UFI oil filter housing, but stamped on the housing cap it says "use UFI filter # 25195775, which differs from the two numbers above as well as the numbers listed in my owner's manual, and is a bit of a head scratcher. I assume I can use any of the UFI filters mentioned in this thread, but thought someone here could explain this different number. I will check further and see if GM or Buick has info for # 25195775. Thanks.

EDIT: Oops-- Just saw on the GM Tech Note linked above that # 25195775 is stamped on the picture of the UFI housing, and so I'm good to go with the corresponding filter shown.

The correct GM oil filter number for your UFI housing is 25195785 or AC# PF2263G.
My UFI housing cap is marked exactly as you say, but that part number has been superseded by the 25195785. It is a real shame that GM makes getting the correct filter such a screwed up challenge / mess.

Thanks for the quick response. Yes, one needs to be sure about such things, and GM should have learned that lesson by now.

sTp #12246 also has the valve @ $5.50 AutoZone
Thanks for mentioning the STP/AutoZone filters. I ordered 8 at (now) $5 each, and hope I'll live long enough to use all of them. I'm assuming the quality of STP filters is acceptable, and, if so, at $5 it's a nice deal. I wonder if AutoZone purchased a big lot of the UFI filters thinking that they would be the most sought after by Encore and other GM owners?
