It's the transmission filter, and your tranny fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles. Saturn decided to try a spin on filter, instead of the traditional paper / frame filter that goes into the transmission pan.

Can't find oil filter, need location


2.2 ecotec motor?

The oil filter is located under the oil filter cap located on the drivers side front of the motor. Remove the plastic cover that goes over the top of the engine. As your standing in front of the vehicle look down and just to the right of the intake manifold. You will see a black plastic cap about 3" in diameter. It will have what looks like a large bolt head molded into the top of it. Remove that cap and the oil filter will be under it.

Want to change the oil myself,don't know how


look in your owners manual or look up online what type of oil you acura takes. Go to the store buy a 5 quart bottle of the oil type. Also buy an oil filter for your car. Just ask the people at the store to look up what filter fits your car. Get under the car or jack it up a little and put it on jack stands and get under it. Locate the oil pan and at the rear of it there is a small drain plug which is a bolt. Loosen it and get ready because once you remove it the oil will come pouring out so have a pan under the car to catch it. Then locate the oil filter and twist it off, replace the filter with the new filter and hand tighten. You dont need to gorilla grip it just snug it. Then replace the drain plug. Now your ready to refill with new oil up top. Make sure you get the right oil type and also lookup how many quarts your car needs. It is easy it takes less than 15minutes

Need to now were to find and look to locate oil filter on a 96 ford windstar v6 3.8 thank u


the oil filter is located under the vehicle usually on the engine block towards the front of the vehicle, sometimes they can be on the rear of the engine block as well. if you take a look under the car and look up into the engine bay you will find it! you need to jack the front end up and make sure you have the car on jackstands with the parking brake on. in case you didn't know, you also have to remove the drain plug and let the old oil out. drain plug is located on the oil pan. any other questions, just ask!

Location of oil filter on a 2008 hyundai elantra


It is located under the alternator. If you are looking down at the engine, it is to the far left. If you are under the car it is to the far right before the oil pan.

Can't find the oil filter where is it located 95 chevy blazer cant find oil filter for an 2002 pontiac grand am


You probably have a canister filter which is located under the hood. You have to screw off the top of a canister and the oil filter looks like a small cylinder-like paper filter. Did you check your owners manual?
