Hi sam
dave here
on the focus i believe it is on the passenger side of the engine block facing rearward about a foot higher than the crankcase(oil pan). It is very easy to access if you jack the passenger front side of the car up. Instead of jacking it up and relying on a jack while your under 1800 lbs i drive the right side of the car up onto a curb/sidewalk from a drive way entrance. This leaves plenty of room to get underneath and it is unlikely for the sidewalk to give out barring an earthquake. Also once you've removed the filter (I use a pair of old work gloves to get a good grip) make sure the rubber gasket hasn't come detached from the filter. If it has remove it from the flange where the filter goes or you will get leaks between the new filter and gasket and the old gasket. When installing the new filter open your jug of oil and slowly fill the new filter with oil this will take a couple of minutes. Also coat the new filters gasket liberally with new engine oil. Only install the new filter left hand tight meaning not too tight.

Where the oil filter located on 4.4


Oil Filter Operation:
00000_oil_filters.jpgA component, located near the oil pump, that removes abrasive particles from the motor oil by a straining process as the oil circulates through the lubrication system. How To Instructions:
Inspect - Check for obvious problems.
Replace - Out with the old, in with the new.
Check underneath the car on the engine (not the transmission which has the driveshaft(s) inserted into it) It's not in the oil pan, it's located somewhere on the block. Good luck finding the oil filter on your 2005 BMW X5 Check Autozone.com's site. I was having trouble with it, unfortunately, because they were experiencing technical diifficulty with the 'oil filter' section of their site, when I clicked on 'Replace'. Autozone's website didn't have a location for it under the 'location' part of their website.

Where is the fuel filter located on cadillac cts 2004


The Location of the oil filter depends on which engine you have in your CTS. the 3.2 engine the oil filter is located on the bottom of the engine to the left of the oil pan. It is not a screw on type filter it is a canister filter. You will have to unscrew the lid to gain access to the oil filter. On the 3.6 Engine the oil filter is also a canister filter but it is located on the top side of the engine. On the drivers side around the center of the engine cover. It will take a 15/16 socket to remove the lid.

2009 toyota corolla,location of oil filter


If this is the V6 engine, your oil filter should be a canister type filter, it should be located on the passenger side, underneath at the front of the engine. You should see what looks like a black cap (about the size of an oil filter) your oil filter is located inside this canister. Hope this helps.

The oil filter is in a filter housing located on the top of the engine. Take the engine cover off. The 3, 10mm nuts are located under the circular pop-off covers that attach the plastic engine cover. You should see the oil filter housing to the right of the engine valve cover. The oil filter housing is a black, plastic cylinder with a cover that unscrews. The filter is inside of this. Make sure you drain the oil before unscrewing the cover to the filter housing.
