The filter is located under the vent grille, directly in front of the windshield on the passenger side of the vehicle. Purchase a new Purolator filter and it will more than likely come with instructions, but just in case it doesn't here are instructions. (1) Turn off the ignition switch while leaving the wipers in the up position. (2) Open the hood and properly secure it in the open position. (3) Gently pull the rubber cowl seal away from the cowl vent screen. Place your hand underneath the right half of the cowl vent screen and lift straight up, thereby releasing the four spring clips and removing the right half of the screen. (4) Remove the water shield. Carefully disengage the two water shield locking tabs and slide the water shield toward the front of the vehicle, lifting the water shield up and away from the vehicle. (5) Remove the Passenger Compartment Air Filter, being careful not to allow debris or loose components to fall into the filter housing. Replace the Passenger Compartment Air Filter with a fresh filter and reverse the above procedures to reassemble the vehicle components.

The oil filter on a 1998 Mercury Mystique is changed by lifting the vehicle up on ramps, placing a drain pan under the filter, and unscrewing it. A new filter is then put in place and torqued down.

Filter is internal and does not need service. There is a drain plug on the bottom of the trans. case for fluid drain. Refill thru dipstick tube.

It is actually inside the transmission itself. You get to it be removing the transmission pan.
