The oil filter is on the right rear of the engine. The attached photo, viewed from the center rear of the engine shows the oil filter cover, which black, circular, and about 3 inches in diameter. There is a special oil filter socket wrench (64 mm, 14 flats) that mates to the 14 flat spots around the circumference of the filter cover. You can also see on the lower left, a spring loaded tab, ostensibly to prevent the filter cover from unscrewing and falling off.
Note that this is a "cartridge" filter, so what you are seeing in the photo is the filter cover, not the filter itself. After unscrewing the cover, the actual filter will be inside the cover when you remove it. The new cartridge filter should come with a new O-ring, which you will place on an indentation on the filter cover. Be sure to liberally lubricate the new O-ring with clean oil. Then insert the new filter into the cover, and screw the cover back into the engine. Be very careful that the O-ring stays in place in the cover indentation, and does not slip out to the cover flange. This happened to me once, and even though the cover was properly torqued, when I started the engine, the O-ring popped out and oil sprayed everywhere. The oil filter cover flange should mate right up against the engine, without the O-ring (or anything else) in between. I don't particularly like this design because it makes oil changing a little more tricky than the old fashioned spin-on filters.
I raised the front wheels about 5 inches using ramps. Without raising the vehicle, I think it would be extremely difficult to get under there to access the filter.

SOURCE: fuel filter location
The oil filter is in an aluminum cylinder on the engine. It is not a "spin on" filter, it is now a cartridge-type filter. When you get one, make sure that you use the new o-rings provided in the filter box. The fuel filter is in the tank. Hope this helps, the graciousness of a FixYa rating would be appreciated. Thanks.
