No special wrench needed for filter.
The oil filter is located in the front of the engine on the right side, down at the bottom.
It's easier to change the filter by taking of the front skid plate underneath. You'll need a 12mm socket to take it off.

If you try to get it from the top, you'll get oil all over the skid plate and have a big mess to clean up. Plus, you may damage the radiator by leaning on it.

How to change the oil on a 2004 dodge ram 1500


Go under the car and locate the oil pan directly beneath the engine and use a wrench to remove the drain bolt after placing a container under it. If you need to change the oil filter, that is also accessed from underneath, and you will need an appropriate sized oil filter wrench to remove it. (It is not always necessary, although desirable, to change the filter with every oil change.)

Replace the filter by dipping your finger into fresh oil and coating the rubber gasket then simply screw it on and tighten it 3/4 turn beyond hand-tight using the filter wrench. Replace the drain plug and pour in the amount and type of oil specified in your owner's manual. Run engine a few minutes and check for leaks at the filter.

Location of oil filter


The 2007 Tundra 5.7l engine doesn't have a spin on filter - it uses a replaceable paper cartridge within a permanent housing. Located under the skid plate on the front-left portion of the engine, the oil filter unit has two coolant hoses, a black plastic screw-in housing, and a large, metal, round screw with a 1/2" square fitting in the middle of it. The cartridge-type oil filter is in the housing.

If equipped with a skid plate, access is accomplished by removing the 5 skid plate bolts, allowing the plate to swing down on integrated hangars (with the front plastic bumper skirt still attached). To completely remove the skid plate, three small screws holding it to the front plastic bumper skirt must also be removed.

Toyotafilter kits contain a new filter cartridge, a plastic drain plug, and two O-rings. The drain plug is used to drain residual oil from the filter unit prior to removing the plastic screw-in housing. After removing the large, metal, round screw with a 1/2" square fitting in the middle of it, the plug simply snaps into the bottom of the plastic housing. The smaller of the two new O-rings replaces the existing O-ring on the screw.

Once drained, the plastic screw-in filter housing is removed using a filter wrench (Toyota special service tool). The larger of the two new O-rings replaces the existing O-ring on the screw-in housing. VERY CLOSE ATTENTION must be paid in placing the new O-ring - failure to properly seat the new O-ring could result in a massive oil leak! The filter itself is currently only available from Toyota.

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.

Location of oil filter on a 2007 pontiac g6


Oil filter location for a 2007 Pontiac G6. First open and lift the front hood of car. Its some what right from center on the engine about 9 inches from the radiator. All you will see is a black cap with black plastic nut in the center. You will have to buy a special tool to attach to your socket wrench to remove the cap. Turn it counter clockwise to remove it. Inside is a filter attached to a plastic part and rubber o - ring. The filter is NOT enclosed in a metal casing. Remember how it is positioned as you take it out. Pull off the old filter. Remove the old o - ring. Place new o - ring in place. Place new filter on plastic part and place it back inside the engine. Make sure it is placed in the same way it came out. Screw on plastic cap by hand most of the way. The tighten with special tool and socket wrench clockwise, but not too tight. This is now complete. Now you can drain out the old oil from the oil pan underneath the car. Remove hex screw with long wrench for more leverage. One to 2 hours later place hex screw back in by hand and tighten with wrench. Now add about 4 1/2 quarts of 5W30 oil only. Check oil level on dip stick. Add more oil if necessary. Job complete!!!

G5 oil change


the filter is a cartridge filter. you will need a 1 1/4 inch socket to remove the filter. it is indeed on the left side. you will have to remove the oil filler cap, then remove the cowling/cover (plastic with foam padding-about the size of a regular pillow). the cowling is removed by just lifting straight up on the entire piece of plastic.with the filler cap off and the cowling off, you will find a round piece of plastic with a 1 1/4 inch hexagonal shaped head. use your 1 1/4 inch socket (or large crescent wrench) to remove the oil filter cover. the old cartridge pops off of the round oil filter cover, new one pops on, use new oil on the green gaskets, tighten the oil filter cover with new cartridge in to it's place and the rest of the oil change is the same as most every other american car. a picture of the oil filter at http://www.power-21.com/FramPower21i/Image.aspx?f=images/Fram/CH9018_012406.jpg
