Re: i need to know what kind of oil filter to use.
Hello! I did a service on a Smart 2006 two seater, I had to drop the sump to remove the 0W 30 oil (As NO Drain plug) the filter is a paper one located behind the big black plastic cap on the engine with a huge nut shape on the top. I have since purchased a oil suction pump to pull the oil out through the dip stick hole, I enquired at Smart and they said Sumps were in the process of having drain plugs fitted but I havn't seen one yet. Maybe you are a lucky one? Oh! as for grade, it really depends on climate and conditions, your Spares supplier/stockist will have the Bible on all recommended lubricants for all makes so He/She will advise you the correct grade. Hope this Helps! Press the Blue Button please to appraise my FREE! Effort. Thank You & Good Luck! Paul 'W' U.K.

That's a tough one! If you need routine maintenance parts like an air filter, oil filter or spark plugs just remove the part and write down the number on the part and get the same part number. If you need stuff like a starter, water pump, etc. you need to look for some kind of ID plate on the engine. Are you sure there is a Chevy engine in an Isuzu Rodeo???? Can't imagine how they did that!
Sounds like the oil cooler is leaking. That is what the oil filter actually threads into. If so, that is not too bad to replace. Other oil leaks/seals to look out for are tail shaft seal (back of trans), rear axle seals, and vavle cover gaskets on top of heads. I would recomend checking the rest of the car carefully for any other leaks. Parts are typically cheap, but labor can get expensive to get to leaking seals and replace them.
Ur right about that!
U could use a high quality replacement parts for ur vehicle!
those replacement FiLTER was BACKed by STP w/c we all know was a BRANDED NAME in automotive industry!
Hope that lighten u up!
Every 10,000 miles partial service; change engine oil and filter, air and fuel filter's, spark plug's and check brakes fluid pipes and pad's. Every 50,000 full service. partial service plus change cambelt, check gear diff and power steering oils. Owners manual or any mechanic will let you know oil grades etc.
