SOURCE: How do I change oil filter cartridge on 1995 BMW 325is?

Those Bmws have a canister filter that is notorious for breaking. To get the top of it is best to use a band filter wrench and hold the canister with large channel wrench while taking the top off. Also check inside the housing to make sur none of the lower gaskets are not stuck in the bottom of the canister. O yeah I work at one of those non Bmw oil change places. If they cannot tell you how many quarts of oil your car takes they probably haven't worked on many and you should leave.

I have a problem with my BMW'05 series 1, there was a oil leak and a mechanic replaced the seal and top up the oil to optimum level. After a week, every morning till now, when I insert the key the red lamp...

Dear sir :
you never mix different oil origin in together. In order to top up the oil it has to be the same origin , type , & grade ,
now you need to drain all that oil out and put fresh oil
purchased from BMW dealer and change the oil filter also then use diagnostic
computer to clear the eng oil pressure light . I hope this will help
let me know.

Have never serviced a Mazda atenza before and have bough the oil filter, not to sure where it goes?

While Frank I would put the car on ramps and get under the car, Oil filters are locate under the car you really have to look it could be any color do to the company who made it fram is orange, stp blue, and some white. Once you find it be sure to put new oil on rim of new filter before install on the o-ring of new filter.

Where is the oil filter? Any advice on changing it? 97 mazda 626

A oil change in my area is about $25.00. A filter for my car is about $6.00. Oil is about $1.50 a quart. A oil filter tool is about $4.50. A oil catch pan is about $2.00.

You asked for my advice ... here it is: I'm not going to spend an hour crawling under my car and get dirty for the $5.00 'savings' I might achieve to be stuck with five quarts of dirty oil that I cannot dispose of.

If you are not convinced, the oil filter on your car is probably toward the rear of the engine, normally white. It will look like a small or large soda can (it will be 1/2 quart size or 1 quart size). They come in two 'standard' sizes but are not interchangable. You will need a wrench for the your sized filter. The oil drain is on the bottom of the oil pan. You will likely have to jack your car up and properly support it (dont trust the jack) so you can get under it to remove the drain. I dont know if yours is metric or USA size plug. You will want to take a collection of wrenches or sockets with you ... probably 11,12,13,14 MM and 7/16, 1/2, 9/16, 5/8 wrenches or sockets, which ever you prefer. BE @!%@ careful you dont strip the plug when you put it back - that will add probably $75.00 to the cost of your oil change.

I hope I have helped you with your question. Thanks for your interest in

How do I change oil filter cartridge on 1995 BMW 325is?

I would first clean up the oil around the housing with brake cleaner. Take the car for a quick run and see where the oil is coming from.

If the housing looks good, then simply take the cap off of the oil filter housing. Remove the existing filter and discard the o-rings. Make sure you lubricate the new o-rings with some oil before installation. This could be why it is leaking now. It may have been overlooked.

Once the o-ring is seated drop in the new filter and replace the housing cap. Tighten the cap to 18 ft lbs. Start the engine, making sure the warning light goes out, showing you have oil pressure.

If your oil is that new then I would not bother with a changeover.

I hope this helps. It is an easy filter to change. BMW doesn't make too many things easy.

Good luck
