HELP>>>>>Oil Change Time
Where do we order Oil filters? I have 7,000 mi on my Smart Car and starting to worry...

Hi @Bob , You could go to Advance Auto Parts and get the Bosch # 3300, or your smart dealer for the OEM smart oil filter. Also you will need 3.5 qts. of Mobil 1 0W-40 full synthetic motor oil. And a wrench for the drain plug 24mm or 15/16". Be carfull because there is a screen on the drain plug. I don't know it can fall offf so just watch for it. Good Luck with your first oil change.

the dealer will stick you for $16 for the filter (i just got whacked for $70 for front wiper blades) better off going to advance. when pulling the plug, there is a screen assembly attached to it, about 1-1/2 inches long, just be aware of that when taking it out. smart recommends 10,000 mile intervals, i did my first change at 5000 miles.
you can use 5W-30 mobil one, i'm running that now, depends on how cold your winters are and how hot are your summers. if you're in the far north or south 0W-40 is best, but in most of the US you can get by with 5W-30.
