Default Right oil filter?

Hey guys, I'm planing on changing my oil tomarrow but don't know if this is the right oil filter. My dad had 2 at his house cause he usually holds all my stuff but we don't know if its for my car or not.

My car is a 01 Se. The oil filter is a ST3387A

Also I don't have a manual for my car so I can't look in that ( previous owner did god knows what with it )

Goto parts store and buy a AC Delco PF52 or PF47 (WITH the Sticker on it, Not the printed one)

Or a purlator or a NAPA or WIX

Think of this way.

You have a canned food with no label and you have a canned food with a label. Which one you going to pick to eat?

It'* better to buy one that you know is the Right one.

If it'* a Super Tech filter, it cross references with the AC Delco PF47. It is the right number for your car, if it is a Super Tech filter.
