Where to find oil filter

It probably is located under a plastic cap with a hex nut on it. This cap is located on the engine near the radiator. The filter has no metal casing. Your engine is the metal casing. You need to purchase a special socket at a auto parts store to remove the cap. Make note of how the filter position is so that you place the new filter back in properly and not upside down. Place a new o ring on the plastic cap with a small amount of oil. Screw the cap back on by hand as far as you can to prevent the plastic threads from stripping. Then use the socket with ratchet to tighten. Do not over tighten the cap.

Did you try right after turning the engine off? If so, it might not of had time to cool, the metal could have expanded making the cap nearly impossible to get off.

Cannot remove oil filter toyota pickup

As a last resort, yeah, a screwdriver. What about a strap-type remover? Large channel-lock pliers? Make sure not to over-tighten new filter. Good luck.

    Were is the oil filter on my scion xd 2008

    2008 Scion xD oil filter is a cartridge (element only) type. It is located under a heavy, black plastic cap right next to the oil drain plug. To remove the cap, you will need a Toyota "Special Service Tool" or an Assenmacher Specialty Tools "TOY640" or similar cap wrench. Toyota is the only source for the oil filter element; make sure you get a new o-ring (should be in the box with the filter element) and a new drain plug gasket.
