Uhh..RH thread. compare the hole in the old one to the hole in the new one. use the same finger to compare. be sure she's kinda warm before starting this exercise. theres always a possibility of a quality control problem at the filter plant. but, still, 4 in a row? recheck for correct part number. or, try another filter brand. lookup by application. be sure not to double gasket. lube the new gasket with clean eng. oil. spin clockwise till filter contacts engine, threading on. then hand tighten 3/4 turn. complete the rest of the service and fill engine with specified # of quarts. startup, watch light. if light for oil goes out, leave running and go make visual inspection of your handiwork

Howdoi remove the oil filter on a 1989 celebrity?

If I recall, that is a rather small filter. There would be a filter remover that fits over the end of the filter and is turned with a ratchet wrench. They are called oil filter cap wrench, at any parts store. There are about 3 different sizes of oil filters, so you need to find the proper fit for your filter.
You put the cap over the end of the filter and use a 3/8 drive ratchet wrench to turn the filter counter clockwise to remove. Once off, wipe the filter surface clean with a rag. then put fresh oil on the new filter's rubber gasket and install only hand tight-as tight as you can get your hands to turn the filter. OR, you spin new filter on till the rubber gasket touches the base of the engine block. then turn filter 3/4 turn more.

Remove oil filter

Some oil filters require a ratcheting type filter remover. It fits over end of filter housing with a tight fit, and you use a 3/8 drive ratchet wrench or it's extension to fit into the square hole in the center of the filter tool to unscrew it.

How do I change the oil on 2004 Trail Blazer with inline-6,4 wheel drive

Warm the vehicle first you may have to jack it up but you don't have to get the tires off to ground. With the vehicle off in park and the parking brake on and you should caulk the rear wheels with apeice of wood 2x4 4x4.Get a wrench that fits vary tight a box wrench is best you don't want to damage the head of this bolt the oil pan drain plug bolt. Loosen the drain plug so you can turn it with your fingers then put your oil pan under the plug and take it out all the way so the oil goes into the pan. Let it drain 10 minutes or so you can be working on getting the oil filter off. Depending where to filter is mounted on the bottom of the block or if you have remote oil lines that usely go the the bottom of the radiator where there will be a small axess door. You will need an oil filter wrench or strap wrenches work well to lossen the filter but don't remove until the oil is done draining from the engine. When the draining slows to a drip clean and install the oil drain plug don't try to over tighten it will have a gasket or seal you don't to over compress this gasket wipe clean with a rag. Then slide your oil pan under the filter and unscrew by hand this will get a little messy sohave a rag with you. You won't get a lot of oil that comes out of the engine but the filter will be full of oil and much heavyer then to new one. Try to flip it over so to oil goes into the pan then you can get the pan old filter out of the way clean where the new filters base gasket will contact wipe with the rag . Put a small amount of oil on the new filters base gasket you can stick your finger in the old oil and run it around the gasket screw it on by hand as tight as you can then tight en with your filter or strap wrench 1/4 turn Then put your new oil in read your oweners manual for engine capacity and look for with the filter because it will take more to fill the filter. Start check for oil leaks shut off check your oil on the dip stick there will be an opperating range over add oil and full you should be in the middle of that . Then pour the old oil in a container with a funnel and you can take to the auto parts store an dispose of it put the oil filter in the box the new one came in and your done as soon you take the vehicle down off the jack

I can't get the housing cap off. I fit a 1 1/4" socket on there but cant get the wrench to fit between the socket and the engine

You should go to your local parts store or tool store to buy the special socket with low clearance for the oil filter housing. Otherwise try a local dealership to buy the socket. If you dont use the low clearance socket you can crack the intake.

The service shop left my oil cap off after an oil change. So far they have brought in 3 different caps, and none of them fit! Two came from parts stores and one from Mazda. I have a 2004 Mazda 6i 2.3L 4...

I had the same problem finding a replacement oil cap after my husband left the cap off. The usual auto parts stores didn't have one that fit. I had to order the cap through the dealership. The problem was that Mazda changed the oil cap midway through the production year. Try oil caps from the years on either side of yours: if you have a 2004 vehicle, try getting a 2003 and 2005 oil cap.

What kind of tool to use on a olds aurora 3.5L, 2001, on the oil cap to remove the filter

A standard oil filter "cap" type remover will work. I bought one at Wal-Mart for a few bucks.
Before I bought the remover I just used two large bolts threaded through a piece of wood - spaced about 2.5" apart. Worked, but not as easy to use as the real thing that fits on to a 3/8" ratchet.

Can't find the oil plug and filter on my 2009 g3 wave?

Oil plug is on the bottom of the oil case (under the car). The plug takes a T45 star socket (available at auto parts store to fit a 3/8" drive). You may be tempted by the transmission plug on the driver's side of the car, this is NOT it. The oil plug is on the passenger side and drains straight DOWN. The plug is flat with the case so it is easy to overlook. Look for the round quarter sized circle with a star indentation that the T45 fits into. This is the oil plug. Most auto parts stores do NOT stock the filter (which has a no metal casing) so plan in advance to order one or two before you decide to change oil.

Can't get oil filter off 2008 Mountaineer

I think you need a bad boy like this:
7519ec0.jpg Most auto parts stores carry it. It's a 3 leg oil filter wrench. You can put a ratchet with an extension on it. They come in different sizes, so make sure you get the right one. They are about $20.
