Where is oil filter on 92 mercury grand marquis ?

It shoud be next to the oil pan.
If you need to change the oil, get an oil wrench
but first get the oil pan screw off to drain the oil and get some kind of oil collector so you won't spill it all over.
Then, after you drain the oil, take the oil filter off. It will drain more
oil. Let it drain a few minutes and then screw back the the oil pan screw; then , on the new filter put some oil on the rubber filter
and tigh it by hand, not too tight. Then fill the oil. It shoul be 4 or 5 quarts. Start with 4 quarts. Do not over fill it. If after a couple of days the oil stick shows that the oil is low, you may want to put some mere oil.

Using synthetic oil

I would switch to a 'Synthetic Blend' first - and stay with that for the next 3 or 4 oil changes (watching for any oil leaks to appear), before going to a full synthetic oil.

Trasmission oil change

My personnel recommendation is every 60,000 miles. If your owner's manual list a lower miles to change it at, follow the manuals advice.

Engine ceased VW 2004 passat 4cyl. 59k, multiply oil changes from local garage, VW too expensive engine ceased. called VW they want to change me to see the car. What shoud lI do?

Let them see the car.

Did you check to see if the vehicle actually had oil in it? Sometimes small shops forget to put oil in or forget to put the oil plug back on.

It may be less expensive to go to your local corner garage at first, but now look at what it is going to cost you.

You may be able to find this engine in the scrap or junkyard. Look for a car that has rear end damage. This indicates that the engine is still good and none of the seals have been shifted because of the damage. Front end damage may cause seals to shift and have an oil leak

What type of engine oil shoud i use

10/40 full synthetic. I personally use Valvoline, but feel that most major brands are providing a good product (Castrol/Quaker). I also use a bottle of Lucas oil treatment with every oil change. Don't forget your filter.
