    This engine uses an element type oil filter, as opposed to the cannister type used on nearly everything else. It is located on the drivers side of the engine, just to the right of the large plastic cover over the top of the engine. It is inside a metal housing that has a large nut looking top on it. The "nut" is what you loosen to remove the metal housing, and the filter is fitted inside the housing.
