With a new oil filter I rub oil on the rubber gasket on the filter, thread the filter onto the housing finger tight and then give an extra quarter to half turn to seat the gasket. The housing should be wiped clean, first. BUT YOU KNEW THAT...

Buick rendevous 2002, 23,000 original miles. sat for about 5 years outside. drove fine first day. 2nd day i drove 10 feet and all oil poured out. it was coming out oil sensor. we replaced oil sensor...


Check the opening around the oil filter outlet and make sure that there is no gasket still on the housing. Fram filters are famous for its gasket coming off and sticking to the surface of the inlet. When you tighten the new filter it crimps the new gasket and leaks all the oil out. I have had this happen to me twice. No more Fram filters for me. Buy PUROLATER. Hope this helps

Check and make sure that the old filter gasket is not still on the housing. Fram filters are famous for coming off and sticking to the surface of the inlet. When you tighten the new filter it crimps the new gasket and leaks all the oil. I have had this problem twice so no more Fram filters for me. Buy PUROLATER they seem to be the best and they don't cost much more. Hope this helps

How do you change the oil on a 2011 sonata?


Changing the oil in a Hyundai Sonata is an easy task that should be performed every 3,000 miles. Follo the below steps to change the oil on your Hyundai Sonata:
1) Ensure the car is parked on a flat surface. Place a drain pan under the engine. Locate the oil pan directly under the engine. The oil pan will be at the very bottom. Now, unscrew the drain plug at the front of the oil pan with a socket wrench. Allow all the oil to drain out into the oil pan. Tighten the drain plug back into the oil pan with a socket wrench.
2) Locate the oil filter in front of the engine. There will be a cut-out in the protective shield where the oil filter is located. Unscrew the oil filter with a strap wrench. Allow the oil to drain into the oil pan. Place the old filter in with the waste oil.
3) Fill the oil filter with fresh engine oil. Screw the filter on to the filter housing by hand. Do not wrench tighten, which could strip the threads of the filter or filter housing. Open the hood for access to the engine compartment. Unscrew the oil cap on the top of the engine.
4) Pour in three quarts of engine oil. Pull the engine oil dipstick out of the dipstick tube and wipe it clean. Push the dipstick back into the dipstick tube. Pull back out and look at the engine oil level. If the oil on the dipstick does not stop between the two marks on the dipstick, pour in a half quart of oil and check the level again. Do not overfill.
5) Start the car and allow it to run for few minutes. Turn the car off and check the oil level once again. Add another half quart of oil if necessary. Ensure the oil cap is back on the engine and the hood is closed. Hope this helps and if you need any parts for your sonata, this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews http://www.buyautoparts.com/carmodels/Hyundai/Sonata.html

How to change the oil filter


Put the car on a lift or jacks. Since it has low clearnance you will need lower jacks or use a ramp.

Remove the oil cap and the oil filter. You may need a strap wrench if the oil filter is too tight to come off by hand.

Look for trap door under the metal cover underneath the car. Open the trap door and you will have access to the oil pan drain bolt.

Use 17mm socket to remove the drain bolt and catch oil into a basin.

Remove the oil filter from the oil cap housing. YOu will also have to remove a large and small oil ring as well as a washer. The new filter will come with those. The oil rings must go into the groove to prevent oil from leaking. The filter goes on the cap housing. The washer that comes with the oil filter goes with the drain plug. Take off the old washer drain plug and put on the new washer drain plug and drain bolt once all oil has poured out.

Ratchet in drain bolt and close the trap door. Put on oil filter by hand. Put in 7 quarts of 5w-30 oil. Check with the dipstick as you get to the last half quart.

Replace oil cap, start engine, and check for any indications of leaks.

Changing the oil


Buy four quarts of oil, oil filter, you'll need couple sockets, oil pan, jack stands, hoist, and strap wrench.

(1) Park vehicle on flat surface.

(2) Open hood and unscrew oil filler cap.

(3) Take oil pan and yourself under vehicle and unscrew drain plug to allow old oil to drain out of vehicle.

(4) As oil is draining from vehicle, go ahead and prepare new oil filter by applying some oil to the rubber "O" ring on new filter. Thats therubber ring on the filter that butts up against the block when thefilter is screwed and tightened into place.

(5) Now that the new filter is ready to be used go ahead and put drainplug back into vehicle oil pan at this point all old oil should havebeen drained out.

(6) Go ahead and use oil filter wrench to take off old oil filter, youmay be able to use your bare hands to take this off as these arejust hand tightened let old oil drain from oil filter housing for a fewminutes. Wipe area clean with a rag before putting new filter on. Nowyou can install new oil filter remember to hand tighten new filter onlyyou won't need to use oil filter wrench to tighten oil filter

7) Now you can add new oil by pouring it into the same place you took off the oil filler cap.

(8) After pouring in oil check oil dipstick to make sure you havepoured the proper amount, this is usually done by making sure new oilis at the top of of the crossed section that is at the bottom of thedip stick.

My oil gauge goes from low to hjgh and tappits get loud and my engine gets hot and its full of oil and water and coolant and can't find any water leaks and the water in the raidiator is circulating well


Pour a quart of auto trans oil, dexron, in the engine, run for ten minutes high idle and change boyh oil and filter. The Dexron works as a cleaneaner and will help flush anything that may have made house in your oil pump or bypass valve. Then change both oil and filter filter. do not throw out the old oil. Let it sit overnight tolrt it settle and separate. After 24 hours, check the bottom of the pan for water and trash. Let me know if you find either. Drag a magnet through it also,.
