The oil filter on these models is a by-pass model. If I remember correctly, it is a Purolator 9018. It does not "look like an ordinary oil filter. If you are facing the front of your engine. it is just to the right of center, and down. It has a 32mm lug on top of the container that hold the filter. Use a 12-24" socket extension with a socket wrench to get it started. Once it is started, (remember, lefty loosey, righty, tighty) then you can undo the rest of it by hand.

Pull the top completely off, the filter will still be attached. Pull (yank) the old filer off the top housing, and install the new one. Start the threads by hand, and tighten to 20"lbs (just past hand tight).

Where is the air filter?

Hi, slide under your Vue forward of the driver-side front tire. You oil filter mounts on the lower side of the engine. It's about the same diameter as a coffee cup--without a handle. Around the bottom of the filter, you should see small dimples. You can remove the filter by turning it counterclockwise by hand. If the filter does not turn by hand, use an oil filter wrench to remove it. Drain the oil completely into a drain pan before you remove your Saturn Vue's oil filter.

Where is the oil filter on the 2007 saturn vue


The 2007 saturn VUE FWD 4 uses a cartridge type oil filter instead of the traditional canister.
The location of the oil filter varies, but for your car it is laying horizontally in the front of the engine next to the exhaust manifold.

Take care and good luck

Where is the oil filter on a 2004 saturn vue

the filter is inside a housing on the front of the motor, theres a cap that you need to remove to get oil filter cartrige out, this is not a metal type filter. look to right of intake toward the bottom you will see a plastic cap about 4 inches in diameter with a hex on top for a socket to attach to for unscrewing. heres a diagram to help you locate it.464d497.gif

2007 saturn vue 4 cylinder - change oil

if you've never done this before, i wouldn't experiment...instead, find a friendly mechanic that will do the job and allow you to look on as he completes the work :o)
P.S. ALWAYS take your own WALMART oil filter and use MOBIL ONE, I think your car is 5W20 and takes 4 qts. Then only change the filter every 5k-(when you rotate the tires) and at 15k do a complete drain and filter!
Good Luck

Where is the transmission filter located??

It is inside of the transmission oil pan. This pan must be lowered to change the transmission filter. This is true of almost all automatic transmissions. Most people have this done by a repair garage. The oil should be drained from the converter ( if possible) at this time also.

Good Luck
