We use Purolator PureOne oil filters. The part number is PL14459, available
at Advance Auto Parts.
To change your oil, after raising the front end and letting the motor cool,
remove the skid plate just under the motor. You cannot get to the oil
filter or drain plug unless you do. There are 5 bolts holding it on (I
forget the size, but I know they're metric). Once it's out of the way, you
will see the filter and oil pan. Drain the oil from the pan (remember to
recycle) and remove/replace the filter, tightening 1/2-3/4 turns after the
gasket makes contact. Clean and tighten the plug then add 4 1/2 quarts of
oil in through the filler on the top of the motor cover. We use Mobil-1
10w-30. Easy as pie.
