Whoa! Good way to start a fight around here. Oil preferences are like @r$eholes, everyone's got one I use Mobil1 5W30 in my Saturns, except the VUE which gets dealership changes. Most any good quality oil, 5W30 or 10W30 should be fine.

Hell no When you're under the car, on your back, it is on the firewall side of the engine, to the passengerside. Some peole go through the whell well, but I think that's a little extreme. Reach up and feel around, you'll find it. Careful though, beacuse if you read the thread I linked, it'll come pouring down oon your shirt where you're now laying. I haven't ruined a shirt yet. Good Luck!

Easiest way to change the oil is by putting the car on ramps. You can reach the filter from below, it's kinda "above" the right driveshaft. Our "how to" section has a thread on a trick you can do with an old oil bottle, to better catch the oil from the filter when you remove it. Drain plug is right on the back of the pan, plain as day.

You can only get the oil filter at the dealership. KIDDING - reference to a previous post. Fram oil filters are flimsy; best recommendations I've gotten are for Wix and NAPA Gold (which are made by Wix).
