This answer was rated:

I'm changing oil on a 2005 F-250 with a 6.0L Diesel, where the heck is the oil filter?

HelloCustomerand welcome to JA,

Below is a short intro to your F250 Truck ( air/oil & fuel filter info)

Motorcraft Air Filters, Fuel Filters, Oil Filters, Transmission Filters and Glow Plugs for Ford 6.0 Liter Turbo Diesel Trucks. Dependable parts for whatever you drive. Find your filter by part number or click a product to see more information on the available filters and parts.

Engine.gif" border="0" alt="" width="200" height="169" align="left"/>Ford trucks equipped with the 6.0L Power Stroke ® Diesels are designed and built to deliver outstanding performance and outsell all other diesel engines - Dodge, Chevy and GMC - combined. The 6.0L Power Stroke ® provides powertrain performance you can feel. A state-of-the-art EVRT ® turbocharger, a V8 configuration and a 5-speed TorqShift TM automatic transmission deliver improved acceleration, drivability and aggressive low-end torque. The 2005 Ford Power Stroke ® Diesel remains unsurpassed in rated horsepower in the heavy-duty pickup market. Enhanced reliability and durability providing uninterrupted operation and lower service costs are also virtues of the 6.0L. A rigid cast iron bedplate and multi-layer stainless steel head gaskets add to the Power Stroke's ® reliability and durability. Excellent serviceability and ease of maintenance are added hallmarks of the 6.0L's Power Stroke Diesel design. No valve lash adjustment is ever necessary because the Power Stroke ® has hydraulic roller followers. Cartridge-style fuel and oil filters are both accessible from the top of the engine. Externally accessible glow plugs add to the Power Stroke's best-in-class service accessibility.

Good Luck

Where is the oil filter on the engine?
Its on the top of the engine-- look at the picture I sent -- looking at your engine you will see a plastic "cap" with what looks like a bolt attached to it/// the filter is inside of it-- its not a usual filter- but a filter cartridge.
