Open your hood It is directly in front of where you add oil, you will need a 24 mm socket with an extension to reach the black top enclosure it's located on the front of the block, drivers side. It is not a canister-style oil filter. These engines have a cartridge type oil filter easy to change. You should see a black plastic cap with a large hex nut on top. Unscrew this cap counter clockwise and the filter will come out with the cap. Have some paper towels ready as a small amount of oil is still captured around the filter and will drip out as you remove the filter.Hope this will help you. Walt
