Question about 2008 Mazda Cx 7
Unless the CX-7 is different from all other cars I've driven, the filter is a cylindrical painted metal can, about 3 or 4 inches in diameter and 3 to 6 inches long. It can any color, depends on the brand. Go to an auto parts store and ask them for one for your vehicle, and look at it. Different vehicles take different sizes.
It is almost always located on the side of the engine block, between the oil pan on the bottom and the cylinder heads on the top. (You generally have to put the car up on ramps to reach it from the bottom, but I assume you are changing the oil, so you have to get under it to remove the oil drain plug as well.)
When you remove it, be careful for oil that may leak out of it as you are unscrewing it.
