when i got the first oil change, i told the shop 5w-30, but they didnt listen, and put in the 0w-20. so i decided to refill with 5w-30. dug out my old mityvac, it was really dirty from not being used in at least 4 years. so i take it outside to clean it, and trip over a sprinkler head that has not retracted, breaking it. skin up my arm falling against the wall. the freaking water nozzle is clogged up, again not being used, by some insect that has made a home in there. has anyone noticed that the oil filter is a cannister, and the filter also fits the accent? now i know why i quit doing this, and take the car to a shop

Yes I have noticed it's a canister, I did my first oil change myself, and it's just as easy of a change as a regular oil filter. I like doing my own oil changes because I know it will be a good job and I'll be putting in the oil that I want. I also chose 5w30 instead of the 0w20, I live in hot southern cali weather.

i didnt change the filter, where did you jack the car from? the last cannister filter i had was a 1968 bmw, and i never changed the oil on it. it was totaled just 2 weeks after i bought it. i hate these cars nowdays that dont have central jack point. ramps just dont do it for me. this is where i miss the shop where i can stand under the car.

do you happen to know the part number you used? Do you install a drain valve while you were doing it?
i have a genuine right here. 26350-2M000. also, cabin filter, 97133-L0000. this also has got to be the same for another car. the aftermarket takes a while to get up to speed on parts for new cars.

No, this filter doesn't use a drain valve. I don't remember the part#, I didn't save it. I just went to the dealer and they searched the oil filter by my VIN#. I wanted an OEM filter and/or I didn't think an auto parts store would carry a different brand oil filter for this car yet being a new model.

this is typical of an aftermarket parts store. depending on the size, they may have a research dept that takes genuine part numbers and crosses them to aftermarket parts, like wix. however, wix may have the wrong cross, and it gets passed downhill. after i retired, and got bored to death, i got a part time job at oreillys. at that time, we had a couple of mazda millenias with the 2.3 engine. all the catalogs showed the wrong spark plug, and i continually sent correction emails to national. ngk also had the wrong cross, and i only contacted them once, they replied that i was correct, but that it would take a while to correct it in their catalog. way before that, i worked for a company that direct imported parts for german cars out of europe. we were a huge bosch warehouse. bosch has a big rebuild plant in georgia. in their catalog, they had a starter for a certain bmw, and they listed 3 different starters for the same year car. i was on the phone with the plant product manager, told him to pull all 3 starters, and call me back. he did, and he agreed that all 3 were completely different. then he asked if i knew which one was correct. of course, i did, but i declined to do their work for them. another time, we got a pile of alternators for a very popular car, and they were all clocked wrong. at first, the owner didnt believe me. "how can bosch, who is the original manufacturer be wrong?" when several shops sent them back, and verified they were clocked wrong, we notified bosch, who pretty much said we were a bunch of dumba$$e$, and to leave the research to them. we sent them all back, and several months later, we get a notice from bosch that the alternator in question is clocked wrong. DOH!!

A fumoto (or oil change valve) valve replaces the standard drain "plug" (bolt) in most cars used to drain the oil. It is not used by the filter. I am ASSuming this car has a standard drain plug, but i could be wrong..
