Quote:Wix shows it as a 57061, which is a cartridge, not a spin-on. Media: Paper Height: 5.157 Outer Diameter: 2.893 Inner Diameter: 1.677 The factory filters are pretty decent. DongWoo, Inc., makes them for Hyundia, Kia, and GM Daewoo. It's a joint venture with Mann+Hummel of Germany, and the filters I've looked at appear to be Mann+Hummel designs.
I'm doing an oil change on my friends Sonata Monday afternoon. But I've read different things about it's filter. Is it a spin on or cartridge type? It's a 2006 with a v6.

Quote:An older lady down the street just bought a 2007 3.3 V6 Sonata. I told her I would help with oil changes. Are you saying the oil filter is located at the top of the engine compartment? I have not checked yet but that is unusual I think. I've always changed filters from the bottom of the car/truck. Is there anything else I should know like crush washers (my Honda requires a new washer at the oil plug after each drain)?
Got around to the oil change today. No suprises , real easy to do. The dealer was the only place that had the oil filter.If it was my car I would throw the engine cover away pain in the butt for no reason.
