Please use an oil filter wrench.
if not available, you can use an old fan belt and loop the belt just like how you use a rubber band if you want to tie them together.

then you can use the belt to loosen the oil filter by pulling unto it.

tnx 4 using fixya,

What size in millimetres is the female socket to undo the oil filter's cannister where one has to insert paper made oil filter and does it come straight out


If you can't remove the filter by hand just use a common oil filter wrench. The filter is easy to access and remove. When you buy your new filter you can find the correct size filter cap wrench which is most likely a 64 mm.

Low oil pressure warning light comes on. oil level is ok


four theories.. two easy.. two not so easy.
one. oil filter is plugged.- change the filter
two. the pick up screen in the oil pan is clogged.- remove oil pan(if you go this far change the oil pump on speculation)
three. the oil pump itself is worn out of tolerance.- remove oil pan, change pump
four. the sensor is defective- change the sensor on side of engine.

How to oil change 2005 Mercedes Benz E320 Cdi


Mercedes makes it easy! Get a 10 quart oil pump and draw the oil out of the dipstick tube. The oil filter is on top so can be removed with a filter wrench and easily replaced. No need to jack the car up or crawel under. No fuss no mess and a 10 minute oil change!!!

Need to remove oil filter housing - oil leaking out. How do you remove it? Bolt location, etc. The car just dumped almost all it's oil in the driveway while it was idling. The leak appears to be around the...


This is not an easy repair in your driveway, but can be done. 1st thing, have you checked to see if the oil filter is the issue or is it the drain plug? If its the oil filter housing gasket, you will need to remove the filter. The housing is held in place by the threaded bolt assy that the filter screws onto. You will need to remove that bolt, remove the coolant hoses. Clean the engine block surfaces, for the new gasket to mate to, clean the cooling housing surfaces, install the bolt through the housing, and install the gasket onto it. Then install the bolt/housing into the block and tighten the bolt. Install the coolant hoses, oil filter. Fill the cooling system with the coolant that you removed. Fill the engine with oil, start and check for leaks.
