Just bought a 2016 Smart Passion, Where can I pick up a oil filter tool ? And what do I need? Oil to use ? How many quarts? Also want to change the Transaxle oil, oil type and quarts needed? Thanks for the Help

Assuming you have a 453 model, I think the correct size is a 27 mm socket for the end of a ratchet. Oil filters can be bought from Amazon and some other places, besides the dealer. Careful, the “nut” on the filter housing is plastic and will distort easily if the socket isn’t fully seated and slips off.

The 453 needs a 8mm square male to pull the drain plug. The easiest thing to do is grind down a cheap short 3/8" extension.



Changing the transaxle oil in not necessary nor recommended. The CORRECT oil is very hard to source in the US, and the factory interval is 100K miles.
