Where is the oil filter located on a 2007 Santa Fe with the 2.7 engine I know the 3.3 has a canister-type filter - is it a regular filter on the 2.7 Is it easy to change the oil on this one?
If you are under the car from the front side; look up at the plastic covering/cowling. You will see an access hole that is about 4 inches in diameter---just bigger than the oil filter diameter itself to give you access to the oil filter. The filter is up inside this access hole by about 6 inches.
Where is the transmission located on a 1998 mystique Does the engine need to come out to change the transmission?
The user is expected to change the engine oil on regular basis as the oil which helps in lubricating the engine and its various parts have a limited self life. Due to regular use it gets contaminated with metal parts and dirt, this harms the engine mechanism and needs to be changed. Thus, after the change of the oil it helps in understanding how far the lubricant will work and keep the vehicle mobile.
