Hi Bart465, The filter is located on the bottom front of the engine on the passenger side. It's silver and looks like an oil filter cap. This is not your traditional oil filter where you replace the entire unit. You remove the cap, drain the oil, and replace the paper filter element and 2 gaskets. Hope this helps!

When changing the paper oil filter are you required to change out the two rubber gaskets as well ?
