AFAIK they switched out from the in pan gasket.
Should be a spin on type that looks similiar to a oil filter.

If it's the GT the A/T filter will be in the driver's side fender well. Remove the battery for access. However, if it's the 2.5i then the filter should be on the side of the transmission itself. Either way, they both resemble an oil filter.

Yes, behind the battery.
Not trying to sound sarcastic but you could have/should have read the owners manual to get this answered. There is alot of usefull info in there.
