1. The oil filter is left rear of the engine(drivers side). Drain plug is on the left front corner of the oil pan.
2. The weight of the oil is dependent on your climate! In your area I would use a 0W-40 or 10W-40.
3. Reset of the FSS system is for 1998 & later cars!
4. The socket is a 74mm & factory part number is 103-589-02-09-00, price from dealer should be around $12. Possibly a local parts store would have a 74mm oil filter socket as well. ie; Pep-Boys or NAPA.
