On a 2007 Cadillac CTS, finding the oil filter can be especially difficult for those who have never owned one or those who are not familiar with car engines.
The 2007 Cadillac CTS has three engine sizes: the 3.6 liter, the 2.8 liter and the 6 liter V8 engine. The oil filters for all are canister types but the oil filter on the 6-liter model has a different location.
2.8 and 3.6 Liter CTS
The oil filter on this model is at the top of the engine next to the fill cap, on the driver's side. The lid for this is locked in though, and a socket or torque wrench is needed to open it.
6 Liter CTS-V
In the 6-liter model, the oil filter is at the bottom of the engine to the left of the oil pan. This filter can be easily screwed off.
