Your looking for the location of your oil filter on your 2005 Pontiac Sunfire. They use a fabric/paper file which is located on the top/front of your engine. If your vehicle has an Ecotec engine, then open your hood. stand directly in the center of your car looking toward the windshield. And when you look down, it's at the front of the engine over to the right a bit. You need a certain tool, or Vice grips to turn the large plastic shaped cover off (Counter clockwise to losen). When it is loose, and you take off the cap. the oil filter will come out with it, you pull it off, and replace it with a new one.
the oil filter is a cartridge style it is located on the front top of the engine driver side behind the radiator i believe it is an 1 1/4" socket (plastic lid be careful) spin this off and the filter is inside
The oil filter is not located on the bottom of the car in the Eco-tec engines like you may be used to seeing. It is actually in the upper area of the engine.
Open the hood and it will be slightly to the driver side of the intake manifold. (Black plastic looking set of tubes that go into top of engine). It will be an aluminum cylinder with a black plastic cap that has a molded "nut" on the top for removal of the cap. Just unscrew the cap. The filter will be clipped into the cap. Just pull it off and push new filter onto the cap and screw back into housing.
