Oil filter

I see Walmart has the cartridge style oil filters for some cars. Like the 2.2 Saturn ecotec motor but NOT the 3.0 motor. I reckon there are few 3.0 Saturn motors on the road. But Walmart got rid of their house brand filters anyway so all they carry now is fram and they charge the same price as oreilly or autozone. No money to be made in auto parts. Gotta sell flat panel tv's I guess.

RE: Oil filter

oil pan bolt has a female torx drive. t-45. and i have a 40 and 50. time to buy a 45 bit or get a hex head bolt for oil pan. filter cap came off easily. the filter cartridge body is bolted to oil filter bracket or side of engine block. i cannot really tell but it has been known to loosen and leak at o-ring seal. but luckily it came loose as designed. u can remove housing and install a threaded coupler and than use a standard metal shell oil filter. pf-47 or typical GM filters.
