How do you replace the oil filter lines located on an 1989 Chevy Blazer S-10?

Unless an aftermarket filter is installed, there are no oil filter lines. The filter is mounted on the engine block or a special mounting plate.

I don't know about your 89 Blazer but my 93 S10 Blazer has oil filter lines leading from the place the oil filter would normally be mounted and the remote filter location under the air filter. I just had the oil filter hoses loose in my car to repair a leak in the block for the hoses where the normal oil filter would have been. I couldn't remove the hoses without removing the exhaust pipe but I was able to repair my leak by changing the o-rings on the hoses and the o-ring and gasket on the hose block on the engine. I had to remove the inner fender on the drivers side of the car to get tnough access to do the job and it took me about three days to do the whole job. I did a lot of trial and error to finally get it done.

I have a 89 s10 blazer, oil filter is located on the drivers side wheel well cover, had my mechanic replace with new lines 6 months ago. No big deal other than hard to get to!
