looks like a round bare filter with no casing. Comes with sealing ring(s). Apparently sits behind some "door" mechanism. At least for 3.2 2003 cts.
hello...could you please advise me on how to remove the oil filter on a 2008 cts..3.6....thank you
Please give me the location of the Oil Filter and Oil Plug on a 2007 Cadillac CTS 2.8L Engine.
In front of the motor
There is not a 2.3. It is a 2.8. The oil filter is on the top drivers side about the middle of the engine. There is a "cover" with a hex bolt in the center to remove it. The cts is a very easy oil change.
The Location of the oil filter depends on which engine you have in your CTS. the 3.2 engine the oil filter is located on the bottom of the engine to the left of the oil pan. It is not a screw on type filter it is a canister filter. You will have to unscrew the lid to gain access to the oil filter. On the 3.6 Engine the oil filter is also a canister filter but it is located on the top side of the engine. On the drivers side around the center of the engine cover. It will take a 15/16 socket to remove the lid.
The oil filter location is on the top of the engine. Just look on the top and you will see a cylinder like area that you need a special tool to take off. If you are looking at the engine it will be on the right side of it near the top.
The oil filter is on the drivers side of the engine. It fits into a canister, using a 24mm wrench to remove.
