Oh, my God, no. If it's anything like the 2001 6-cyl, it takes a pair
of needlenose pliers, a crescent wrench, 5/8" open-end wrench, and a
1/2" open-end wrench. Filter is located about the center of the
left-hand side, just under the edge.
Just be aware of fire hazard; you WILL drop some gasoline out (just a
few tablespoons.) Do in a well-ventilated area, have some rags handy.
Spend the money you save on a Haynes or Chilton's manual.

Maximum labour charge would 1/2 hr. Whatever that translates into
dollars in your neck of the woods. Anyone who knows what they
are doing can do this in 15 minutes....including driving the vehicle
into the shop and out. Don't compare Autozone prices to the
dealer prices. No doubt the GM filter is way pricier then $8.
