It is not visible from the top. It is on the back side of the engine. Visible from the bottom of the vehicle. Use a jack stand whenever going under your vehicle to be safe. Always engage the parking brake, and have an assistance watching you. Good luck.

Where is the oil filter in a 1996 cadillac sts



  • The oil filter is accessed from the bottom of the oil pan. You won't see it if you're looking underneath the car from the front as the filter sits up inside the pan from the rear. Once you get under there you will see it no problem.

Looking for the oil drain


here's the whole process
Start the engine and let it idle in neutral until the radiator fan goes on. Hotter oil drains more completely. Shut off the engine and let the oil drain into the drain pan for five minutes.

  • 2 Unscrew the engine oil-filler cap. You don't need to remove it, since you just want air to get in so the oil can drain. The engine oil cap is labeled SAE 5W-30 and is on the right side of the engine toward the front for both the V6 and the V8 engine. The dipstick is an inch or two away on both engines.
  • 3 Slide under the car engine and locate the oil drain bolt. It will be the lowest point on the engine. Don't mistake the transmissionunderlined.png?1 fluid drain plug for the oil drain bolt. You can tell them apart because the metal around the engine oil drain bolt will still be hot.
  • 4 Loosen the drain bolt counterclockwise with a crescent wrench. If it doesn't budge, use a closed end wrench for a better grip. Slide a drain pan under the engine oil drain bolt. Unscrew and remove the drain bolt by hand. Workunderlined.png?1 on the oil filter while the oil drains.
  • 5 Identify the oil filter as baseball sized; a cylinder about as tall as it is wide. It will be on the underside of the engine. Orient your oil filter wrench to grip when turned counterclockwise, if it's the type that has an oriented grip. (Some oil-filter wrenches grip when turned one direction but not the other.) Fit the oil filter wrench over the oil filter. Turn it, preferably with a socket wrench, though a crescent wrench suffices. The male socket goes in the center hole of the oil filter wrench. Just loosen the filter with the wrench. Unscrew and remove the filter by hand.
  • 6 Screw the drain bolt back in, after draining for an hour. If you use a torque wrench, make sure to tighten to 29 foot-pounds. Edmunds recommends replacing the washer, since drain bolt washers are compressible and wear out fast.
  • 7 Remove the O-ring that seals between the filter and the engine. Clean the engine cavity with a rag, including rubber O-ring residue. Coat the new O-ring on the new filter with clean oil, hold it in the cavity and screw the new filter on manually until you feel some resistance. Set the oil filter wrench to grasp clockwise. Place the oil filter wrench on the new filter and turn clockwise an additional 2/3 revolution. Be careful not to overtighten, which can lead to an oil leak. For the oil filter, use GM part 25177917 or ACDelco part PF2129 for the 3.6L V6, and use GM part 89017342 or ACDelco part PF61 for the 4.6L V8.
  • 8 Pour six quarts of motor oil in the refill cap opening of the V6 engine and eight quarts. into the V8 engine. Cadillac recommends that you use only an oil that meets GM Standard GM4718M. Otherwise, you could cause engine damage that is not covered by your warranty. Cadillac also recommends using SAE 5W-30 viscosity oil, with the API "for gasoline engines" starburst on the packagingunderlined.png?1.
  • 9 Check the dipstick, which is one or two inches from the engine oil-filler cap. The oil should come to the cross-hatched area, but not higher. Overfilling can reduce mileage and even harm the engine. Screw the filler cap back on.
  • 10 Start the engine and idle it in neutral until the radiator fan goes on. Inspect the drain bolt and the filter for oil leaks. Take the car off any supports.
  • 11 Reset the engine oil life system after every oil change. Scroll the Driver Information Center (DIC) until it displays "Oil Life." Hold the reset button until it reads 100%.
  • good luck

    Where is the oil filter located on a 2006 sts cadillac


    the oil filter is not a regular looking filter, its a cartriage type that goes into a housing, if you open the hood and look on the driverside of motor near the oil fill cap you will see a cover cap with a nut shape head on top, use a 24mm socket on a rachet and unscrew the cover,then pullfilter out, install new filter and replace oring provide with filter on the cap. hope this helps.

    Oil filter location


    The V6 has a screw on filter unlike the 4 cylinder which has a cartridge filter. The filter is located in one of 2 positions depending on which V6 you have. On one V6 it is located under the car towards the front where there is a splash guard that is held in place by two thumb screws. Remove the thumb screws take out the splash guard and there it is. On the other V6 it is located under the air tube that comes from the air filter where you will see a nut about the size 3/4 or bigger just unscrew it and change your oil filter.
