This must be the wrong filter, do you have a thread pitch guage? I have changed 1000's of filters, the only time ever had a problem was when the filter had the wrong thread pattern, even when it looked like the right one, get another brand and double check the info on your car.

If at filter it could be only what comes out (oil drip) when changing oil filter. If filter is good then use oil filter tighter tool to tighten the filter snugger. Make sure its not the oil bolt that is leaking, which could leave that pesky oil spots. Tighten it or replace oil bolt with new one.

Oil filter gasket blowing out with on minutes of restarting after oil filter & engine oil changed.


Hi hope this helps.
When you removed the old filter, did you check if the old oil filter rubber gasket was removed also.
Some time when you remove the oil filter the old o-ring will get stuck on the filter housing.
Then when you place the new filter on you have what is called a double gasket.
this will cause you to leak oil rapidly.
I would remove the filter and check for a double gasket.
Hope this helps FixYa
leave feedback please.

Do I need a mechnic for changing oil in my chevi


No. The oil is very easy to change. All you need is a filter wrench and a 15 mm. socket, and a drain pan. Get under the truck and the oil filter is right there and the drain plug is in the oil pan. Drain the oil first, then remove the oil filter with the filter wrench. Take your finger and dip it in the oil and put a film of oil on the new oil filter gasket. Then install the new oil filter. Once you install the new oil filter, put the drain plug back in. Then put 5 quarts of new oil in the oil fill.

How to change the oil in a 2002 chevy trailblazer


Get the oil, and filter first then get it up on jack stands. On the side of the oil pan is a 15mm bolt, remove that bolt and drain the oil. Once that is done put the bolt back in and tighten it up. Next locate the oil filter and spin off counter clockwise, let all the oil drain and then take the new filter and dab a little of the used oil on your finger and smear it on the new seal for the new filter. Tighten up the new filter and then take the car off the jacks. Pop the oil filler cap and add oil. Once you have done that start the car for 60 seconds then turn it off and check your oil level. Add more oil if needed. Then your done.

What are the steps to changing the oil in this


1. As for parts, you will need an engine oil filter that is made for your vehicle, new oil and something to catch the oil in. Depending on the size of your engine and the type of engine it is, you will want to make sure that you have the correct engine oil that is recommended for your vehicle. Most engine oil is either synthetic or not, and most cars do not need to have synthetic oils. Check your owner's manual though to make sure of which you need. There are many options out there for catching the oil, but many stores sell dedicated oil pans that will hold many quarts of used oil. You may also want to invest in a tool that will wrap around your oil filter to allow easier extraction and installation.
2. With your engine heated up - to allow for better flow - jack the vehicle up.
3. Position the oil pan underneath the drain plug. This is a small plug that sticks out from the bottom of the vehicle's oil pan. You will need a ratchet to remove this. Once removed, watch out for the oil that comes out of the bottom.
4. For a faster release of oil, you can also open the oil cap on the top of the engine.
5. After the oil pan has been drained, you can replace the drain plug and go to work removing the old filter. Make sure the oil catch pan is now under where the filter is, as there will be more oil draining from it. Twist the filter to remove and let this oil drain as well.
6. Now start to prep the new filter. This simply means pouring a little bit of new oil into it and spreading some around the top of the filter with your finger so that a better seal is created. Get back under the car, if required, and then put the new filter on. Hand-tighten and then add a little more pressure with an oil filter tool.
7. After that has been done, you can lower the car and measure out the amount of oil that you need. Pour this into the oil reservoir on the top of the engine. Finally, replace the dipstick and check the level of the oil. If all looks good, you are all done. Clean up with some soap or grease cleaner for your hands and put the used oil in a safe place.

Looking to change the oil on my V6 AWD 2004 SRX. Where is the drain plug and filter case located? What size wrenches are needed?


Locate the drain plug, size 13mm, drain the oil, replace drain plug. The oil filter is located by the dipstick. Replace filter put 5.6qtz of 5w-30 synthetic and you are good to go. and the oil filter is located to the right of the engine cover if your looking in at it. It looks like a small cast iron canister with a nut on top (its all molded together). unscrew the top of that and it is in there, the oil wrench come and can adjust to different size, I assume you never done an oil change and don't have any tools. go to any local auto parts store and tell them you need everything from oil,filter,removal tools, oil pan, funnel and they will give you everything you need ans some advice. when you put the filter back on, I would only do hand tighten. make sure you rub a bit of oil around the new rubber seal on your new filter using your figure. Buy the time you spend for all the tools what what need for oil change you will spend as much as having the pro do it, Oil change has been cheaper to change now day compair doing it your self. many places are offering 19.95 to 29.95 oil change, its worth all the hassle to let them do it. do the math, filter 6.00, 6qt of oil 27.00, tools 8.00, funnel 3.00, oil pan 12.00 right there is 56.00 buck plus you get to craw under the car and get dirty.

Oil change procedure on a 2005 Hyundai elantra


it is very easy to change the oil put the car on ramps secure the back end look for the drain plug underneath the engine make sure you have the right size wrench and when you remove the plug also check the gasket on the plug to make sure it is not cracked you will also need an oil filter wrench and my other suggestion to you is to go to autozone to see if they have a Haynes repair manual for your car and if they don't see if they can order you one in the mean time they can also print you off a diagram of how to change the oil in you car safely
