The correct oil weight is 5W20, but 5W30 can be used also. Be consistant when using oil, try to use the same brand and always use the same viscosity. This vehicle requires 4.5 liters of engine oil.

The oil filter is at the front of the engine under the plastic belly cover, it is of the paper type hope this halps you out.

Under the hood, there is a data connector near the strut mount. Open the cover and you'll see a bunch of connectors. In the center, it should look sort of like pac-man. The "mouth" should look like it's going to eat two pins, with your key in the on position, grab a peace of wire or paper clip (use insulated pliers) and ground out the pin furthest away from the pac-man's "mouth". You can ground it to the nut on the strut tower for about 5 seconds, then remove wire and inspect lights, they should be all green

You can get a professional consult free from mobile 1 at 1800 033-0863. It appears that 10w-30 and 10w-40 are commonly used in this make but the climate you live in could make a difference as well as your driving style. If the engine runs hot you'll want a heavier weight possibly but if you are in a cold climate that might not be the best thing. I'd call the number.
