Finally after much pondering decided to just go and buy that V8 and I pick it up next week:rofl2:, its a demo so has 3000 or so km s on it so i want to do an oil/filter change straight away.

So as this is my first V8 just wondering were the oil filter is located and is the filter the same as the paper ones in the V6 or the metal cased ones???

Its a Series 2 auto AFM if that makes a difference,

thanks in advance

The oil filter is located at the bottom rear of the engine (where the sump is). As for its composition like the V6 I am not sure, they are and ACdelco brand, metal casing design with a paper type filter inside encased in metal also. Here is a link to the AC delco range http://www.acdelco.com.au/PDFs/Catalogue_ACDelco_Filters_29-04-09.pdf

Or you can see it here http://www.acdelco.com/parts/filters/oil-filters.jsp

Hope this helps
