Okay, I took my catera for an oil change at local oil and tire place. They changed the oil and said to me that oil filter housing has to be replaced. Any ideas where I can get the part or is there a way to change it to a conventional oil filter? If so please post step by step details with pictures, if available.


Thanks in advance.

You never need to change the housing unless it's physically broken. I've had the seal leak from where the housing attaches to the block. Your best bet is to look for yourself and post a pic and let's see why it needs to be replaced.
