I have Lennox Sentinel EC10 with "Hammock" filter. I'd like to change to standard square with cardboard frame. Is there somebody know what's the model #?

Not very hard by all means if you have a few basic hand tools, a torque wrench and ramps or a jack and stand to lift the car up...
About 95% of automotive automatic transmissions do not have a drain plug, so you have to remove the transmission pan to drain the fluid, and the filter is up under the pan anyway. Remove all the pan bolts, drop the pan, make sure you have a container ready for the oil under it... If you buy the filter/pan gasket kit and you look at the filter it should be a pinch to spot. This is what your particular filter looks like (from the top)
Replace the filter, clean the pan/transmission mating surface with emery cloth, scuff pad, or whatever needs to be used to get the metal clean again (without removing too much material eg. a grinder would definitely cause a leak).
Reinstall the pan with the new gasket (do not use silicone or any type of fluid "gasket maker" Automatic transmissions have a lot of tiny oil passages which can easily be blocked by these products and cause severe transmission damage)
Torque the bolts to the manufacturer's spec (you don't really need a torque pattern, just start from the middle of the pan and alternate from side to side (this is to make sure the pan seats square with the transmission body)) 90% of the time you could tighten them anyway you want and wouldn't have a leak but you want it done right the first time so don't take any chances (you should be able to get the torque value from the parts store where you get the filter/gasket kit). I'm not able to pull out an exact spec for you right now.
Fill the tranny up, then drive th

Remove gas cap and relieve fuel system pressure from fuel rail pressure relieve valve.Then you will want a drain pan of course. Before you can remove the fuel line, you will have to buy the cheap plastic quick-connect fuel line removal tool that fits your car. Or buy a universal pack for like $5. Then you press the plastic tool inside the fitting and pull on the other side and it disconnects instantly. then grab the new filter and the lines will just click right back in.

Hiya...the cabin air filter is located below the front passenger/windshield area.
It's only accessible by standing outside the Equinox with the hood open.
Here's how to do it...(before you pop open the hood)
1) Stand outside at the front-right door area.
2) Just below the front windshield area, pull up a few small black plastic clips that's on the black windshield wiper cowl area- a small flat screwdriver or a special clip-remover tool is handy.
3) Raise the hood up.
4) There may be a triangular-shaped hard foam sound damper at the left side nearby the hood hinge...pull it off if it allow you to work around it with ease.
5) Continue to find a few black plastic clips around the black windshield wiper cowl area.
6) Gently pull up the black windshield wiper cowl cover with care not to bend it too hard during removal.
7) You should see the cabin air filter inside that's held in place by a black rectangular box inside.
8) There's 2 black tabs that holds the cabin air filter in place.
9) Insert your finger or tool to pry the cabin air filter away from the tabs.
10) Remove old cabin air filter.
Remember to reinstall the clip parts back into place when you're finished.

You will need two wrenches for this job, as well as some rags and perhaps a drip pan. Please do not smoke during this operation. Find the fittings on each end of the fuel filter that accept wrenches. you need to find wrenches that fit each one, and turn them opposite directions to loosen. You will instantly have a fuel leak, which you should catch in a pan, and wipe up the fuel that ran down your arm in the process. Let the pressure drain, then unscrew the filter the rest of the way. Loosen the other end in the same manner, and it should pull out of the clip that holds it to the frame. Empty it out and discard it. Place the new filter in position, taking note of the directional arrow on it. The arrow points to the engine. Screw the lines on just as you removed them, and you're done.

you will need the proper Quick Disconnect tool, Look on the Frame rail for the filter, remove filter from the spring type retainer, remove the safety clips on the lines but not remove them completely, insert the disconnect tool & push into the fitting of the fuel line, push line & tool into eachother then pull filter away from line, if not done properly you will have a big problem putting the line back on
