2005 530d oil change/service

I want to change the oil on my 530d 2005. Is there an in-line filter as well? Do I need special tools?

    I went and actually did change the oil OK. The only additional comment I have is that a standard 32 mm socket or spanner is all that is needed to take off the oil filter housing. I was warned though to cover the alternator with a plastic bag to prevent damage from dripping oil as the filter came out.

Just had oil change done on my 2000 alero now my service engine soon light is on.I want to know what this means


It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.

What if any special tools are required for a


No special tools required. MAYBE!

I say maybe because if you've ever taken you car into a quick lube place and they've changed your filter they are Notorious for installing the new filter on TOO TIGHT!. They are actually told to do this so the owner is forced to come back and have them do the next oil change. Its almost criminal.

The plug to drain the oil from the car is a simple 5/8in bolt, a socket or open ended wrench with work just fine.

The Oil filter SHOULD be able to unscrew by hand. Now if its on there too tight. There is a tool at any auto parts store called a Oil filter Wrench. They run around 10-20 bucks. all it is a handle with a metal ribbon that loops around the filter and allows a better grip.

You can also get away with jamming a screw driver into the filter and using that for leverage to unscrew it from the engine. *Note* This is extremely messy!!!

Just remember when installing a new filter to tighten it one half turn after it becomes tight. It does not need to be cranked on there hard.

Hope this Helps and thanks for using FixYa.com

How do I change the oil filter on a MAZDA 6 4 CYL..


You don't need a special tool. Use a 6mm allen to remove the filter drain plug. It will probably start to spin the filter housing. You can remove the housing by hand or with a regular oil filter wrench.

Oil seal leaking on 1999 gmc half ton 4w/d on front of transfere case do i need special tools or can I drop drive line and replace seal


billbohman: Unless GMC has had some change I am not aware of and that has not been published in service manuals for the repair of these units, the procedures are the same as any seal replacement and require no special tool. There are some universal seal installation tools which I would venture the majority of techs don't have because they substitute other tools in their place most of the time. Most techs will have a special tool designed from removing seals. However, the seal can be removed without it.
Just use a little common sense when removing a seal. Don't damage the casing.
Good Luck.

Do I need a special tool to change a 2005 Excursion fuel filter?


I changed the fuel filter in my 04 explorer last week. You to need a special tool, it is just a little plastic tool that you slide onto the fuel line to release the clips holding the line onto the filter. If you know what your doing and have easy access to the filter, and most importantly...you enjoy doing the work then buy the tool and change the filter. By the way the tool ranges from $5 to $20, depending on what the part store has on their shelves.

Oil Change Instructions for VW Touareg 2004


Hi,

I just did an oil change service on my Touran last night (same principal as the Toureg). The Touran has a bleeder (there is a seperate screw type cover under the filter) to release the excess oil in filter (not sure it the Toureg has the same)The aluminum casing around the filter is a bit tough to remove, but turning it anti-clockwise with a little bit of force should do it. Try not to use the special tools that are available to grip the casing as you may dent it. The sump plug can be removed with standard tools. I am still working on the reset option for the 'service now' warning
