Raise the front end of the PT, I believe it is on the driver's side. Trying to remember () when it was on the lift when I last had the oil changed. It is very visible tho when the PT is on a lift.

as holligan said, it will be very visible from under the car. for its position, it is just a little on the passenger side behind the engine, pretty mush at the same level as the plug and close to it, and very accessible

Easiest car to change the oil I have ever owned next to V-8 Chevies from the '60's and up.

Filter is right there by the drain plug.

I use Mobil 1 synthetic media filter M1-209, one of the best brands out there.

Agree with all that...

I drive it up on ramps to get to it easier. - warms the oil up (from cold) just enough to flow but not too hot to handle in a plastic container.

We are from the same cloth - except I like the rig good and hot - easier removal of filter.

LOVE my RHINO ramps - use them all the time - even just to get the car up to working height when changing spark plugs - or wash/wax you name it!

Crewzin, this is great. A picture is worth a thousand words. I'm all set as soon as I find a Cadillac horn I can install in my PT.

Most of us went with an Ahooga Horn, but I guess a Cadillac horn would be different. You might be able to stick it right where the OEM horn is (right fender).

Mobil One Oil 0w30, Mobil one filter M1102 is the right one for a 2001 base (N/A), M1209 for a 2004 Limited (turbo).
