I am planning on getting an oil change done here soon. I talked to my families mechanic/oil change place and they did not know if the 2010 has a plastic housing cap or not.

Does anyone know?

They are also having troubles finding a oil filter number in their computer, any idea on a good one?

Thanks guys

PS: if it matters i have 2.0L

I am 100% sure that the 2.5 has a spin on filter, and 99% sure the 2.0 has a spin on filter as well. I had no trouble finding the proper filter in the books hanging at the parts store. If anything I would say you can conctact your local dealer and find out from them as they would be 100% sure on proper filter. You can buy OEM filters online around 5 bucks a piece.

All the research I dod showed that it was a spin on one, its just good to have other peoples input.

Thanks
FRAM Part # PH3614

There is like 5 different levels of FRAM filters, the "best" one being Double Guard. They all have different letters at the front, but the "3614" is the same across the board for your car.

KnN Filter Part Number: HP-1002

also if it helps looking up in the computer, the 2010 uses the same filter as the 2009 model. Some computer software hasn't been updated to the new model yet but it will be the same.

it is indeed spin on, no special wrench needed. but im not sure if its just my car or if its everyone, but my oil filter hole on the plastic case does not line up with the actual oil filter, so just be wary of that

Fram:
PH3614 - ExtraGuard
TG3614 - Tough Guard
XG3614 - ExtendedGuard
DG3614 - DoubleGuard
HM3614 - HighMileage
M-102 - Mobile 1
Purolator - L10421
Purolator PureOne - PL10421

I personally use the Mobile 1 Filter, read too much bad stuff about Fram Extraguard, such as cheap or bad pressure relief valves and bypass valve.

excellent information!! I too use the Mobil 1 filter.

2.0/2.5 uses the same filter.
