If you have the 2.2 ecotech engine

the filter is directly in front of where you add oil, you will need a 24 or 32 mm socket with an extension to reach the black top enclosure.

they changed the size of the socket needed and i cant remember what year they changed it try the 24 first.

Where is the oil filter located on a 95 pontiac sunfire


The filter is a cartridge element type which is located on the forward side of the engine on the drivers side; (below and slightly left of the power steering reservoir). The oil filter is located under (inside) a black cover about 3-4 inches around and has a large hex head nut molded on top of it, to fit a socket on it. When replacing the oil filter element, press the tipped O-ring side of the filter down into the filter cavity until it locks in place. Then place the cover on top and tighten it. The cover will automatically lock onto the top section of the oil element as it is being tightened.

I accidently poured antifreeze in the oil resevoir of my 1998 Pontiac Sunfire. What should I do?


You need to drain 1 quart of oil, pour in a bottle of engine cleaner, let car run for 3-5 min and drain oil. Install a new oil filter and re-fill with correct oil and amount. You can get by with just draining the oil and doing an oil change but I suggest running the engine cleaner along with changing the oil.

Need location and part number of oil filter on


It's a Fram cartridge CCH 9018. The container is on the front of the engine close to the air intake. It is a Black plastic container and unbolts with a 1 1/4 socket.
The filter will come out with the cap. Unscrew and attach the new filter to the cap and screw back in.
It's quick and easy.
