I have to different sized oil filter cap wrenches. One for the stock, smart oil filter, the other for the Mobil 1. Body shell, just a little different.

Since any smart dealer is at least 2hrs drive, I opted for a local solution for the first service on my 2008 Passion... The Yamaha motorcycle dealer. I got a Yamaha 5DM-13440-00 oil filter (that cross-refs with Mitsubishi's Tokyo Roki filter) and 10 years ago it went for $17.23.

The stock filter is for a Mitsubishi motor (the Smart part # is A-132-180-00-10: the Mitsubishi part # is 1230A040) the copper ring can be re-used (part # A-018-997-44-45) The drain plug screen needs to be washed in solvent (solvent available at any parts store) be sure the screen is dry before re-installing- it does not need to be replaced. Minimum oil spec is 229.9, I live in a moderate-cool climate and used 3.5 qt Mobil 1 10w40.

BTW, a longer oil filter will reduce ground clearance, so that's a consideration.

The transaxle drain and fill:
Facing the rear, the plug on the lower right side of the diff is the drain... on the left and several inches higher is the fill plug.... Use Mobil 1 75w90 gear oil (2.4 qts).

You need to use a GL-4 gear oil in the transmission.

Mobil1 75W-90 is GL-5, which is bad for brass synchros.

This is my smart service advisor recommended. For the transmission oil. He used it, in all 3 of his smart cars.
