We use the AC/Delco PF61 on our 2005 N*V8; our filter is located about 2 ft back from the front bumper on the right side of the engine (looking forward), viewable between engine and frame; it is accessible from under the vehicle.
We believe the V6 filter is inside the engine compartment and accessible under the hood.
Good luck!!

If you have the V6, the oil filter is on the top of the engine, near the dip stick and the top of the drivers side strut tower. It is a canister (cartridge) which uses a socket for removal; not the normal oil filter wrench. Hope this helps.

If you have the V6, members have compiled a manual on this vehicle. E-mail me at jpettit(at)swbell.net and I will send you the pdf.

In the V6 the oil filter is near the dipstick as posted above, mine is silver in color and requires a 15/16 socket, I was told to use only AC delco, the reason is that other filters are thicker and oil does not circulate as quickly and this important in this engine. I guess I'm a nerd because while I was changing my oil last weekend I took pictures, lol. Although the above posters described it accurately, I can send you pics if you like, good luck.
