3.8L V6 Engine Oil Filter Removal

When removing Lambda 3.3L or 3.8L engine oil filters used on Sedona (VQ), Sorento (BL) or Borrego (HM), be sure to pull the oil filter cartridge off the filter cap in a straight line. Do NOT bend or rock the filter cartridge back and forth during removal, as this may damage the inner parts of the oil filter cap assembly.

I know this is a stupid question, but I haven't found my oil filter on my 3.8L yet. Where is it located?

Open the hood, look straight back... it's on top, behind and to the right of the manifold.

5w30 should be fine as it doesn't get that cold there. Synthetic is best.
