I'm assuming engine oil and if it is a 4 cylinder i would use a 5W-30 but if it is a 6 cylinder i would use a 10W-30 only for better protection.

SOURCE: can't find the oil filter

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?

SOURCE: what type of motor oil

usually any name brand such as pennzoil,havoline, or such. just be sure to use the same kind of brand when you do oil change.
it is not good to mix oil because some have different chemicals in it and could cause to break down faster.
10w-40w is a good one for warmer areas.10w-30w is good for winter areas. the last number is the thickness of the oil. they do make thicker and thinner weights. id use like 20w-50w if the car smokes a lot.
make sure the oil has the api sticker on it. some brands are so cheap(like from dollar store-no mame brands), just wasting your money.
make sure also the it has the 10w in front of the other you get; 10w40w..etc
they do make some like just 30w or 40w.
check ads at parts store to get a good deal on oil..lots of places like autozone and such, usually can get lot cheaper than places like walmart or dealerships or such.might want to stock up when you see a good sale for when gas goes up will oil.
10w-40w havoline or pennzoil i recommend for your car.

95 Pontiac Grand Prix, 120 K, leaking antifreeze (small puddles after 1-2hr parked @ curb). Original owner/original radiator. Not a DIY-type. Advice ??

You need to pressure test the cooling system and then inspect for the source of the leak. If you are not a DIY, take it to a shop.

2007 Pontiac Grand Prix uses oil between oil changes and has a black carbon type ring around the exhaust pipe opening. Pontiac dealer told me it's normal for a 3800 V-6 to use a quart of oil in a thousand...

it is not normal for that engine to use that much oil. i know of another grand prix like yours that lost the engine and the dealer had to replace it. something is wrong with that engine. maybe talk to another gm dealer. good luck

My 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP has an oil leak located on the firewall side of the engine. It's a small leak (2-3 drops a day) but very messy on my concrete driveway. How can I fix it?

Try some motor honey. It can be bought at most part stores, advanced auto, autozone, ect. It worked for my 95 Grand Am when I had a leak in my oil pan gasket. Hope this helps
