2019 Equinox oil filter question
Here in the next month or so, I will be doing my own oil change on my 2019 Equinox. We are in the cold weather season, so I'd like to get in and get out, and have the oil change complete. Sure I could take it in to have it done, but no thanks. I like doing my own maintenance if possible. The first free oil change by the dealer ended up with the mechanic spilling oil on the top of the engine cover. Looked like ass. I didn't notice it till some time after when I popped the hood. So I figured no more, I'll do it myself.
I know there is not much in the way of how to videos on changing the oil on these vehicles since they are still so new. I'm trying to see where everything is, and possibly what all is needed (type of filter, and tool sizes). A couple of videos I did see, have an oil filter that was like a plastic cartridge, where a ribbed paper filter would slide into it. Then you'd screw it into place. I have never seen that before. Then when I see another video, it showed a typical oil filter that screwed in from underneath the car. That method is what I am used to.
That cartridge cap/paper filter set up is throwing me off. What is that filter, and what cars do those apply to?
I haven't bought anything yet, want to make sure I get the right type of filter. When I google oil filter for my specific car, the results show the standard oil filter that I'm used to seeing. So why are others using the cap/paper filter?
Is what I'm asking making sense?
