Question about 2004 Cadillac CTS

1 Answer

I can't get the cap off the oil filer in a 2004 Cadillac CTS.

The filter cap has a 25mm nut on the top with an arrow pointing clockwise. Do I turn clockwise to loosen or tighten? Also, it looks like it is frozen on. Is there an easy way to loosen the cap? Thanks for your help.

Finding oil filter cannister in order to change itjiujitsublade


Hello, Stand in front of the car with the hood open, on the front left side of the engine there is a cap with a large nut (3/4 I think). Loosen it (counterclockwise) inside you will find a paper element. Pull it out, note the top and the bottom, it should come out with the cap. The car (engine) has the element type filter not the canister type.

Where is the fuel filter located on cadillac cts 2004


The Location of the oil filter depends on which engine you have in your CTS. the 3.2 engine the oil filter is located on the bottom of the engine to the left of the oil pan. It is not a screw on type filter it is a canister filter. You will have to unscrew the lid to gain access to the oil filter. On the 3.6 Engine the oil filter is also a canister filter but it is located on the top side of the engine. On the drivers side around the center of the engine cover. It will take a 15/16 socket to remove the lid.

WHERE IS THE OIL FILTER FOR THE 2007 CADILLAC CTS - 2.8 L ENGINE?


the oil filter is right next to the engine on the right side (if your looking at it from the front of the car as if you were about to work on the car) its a metal cylinder with the filter inside of it. it has a "nut" on top so you can get it with a wrench or socket. if you need more help look it up on youtube theres a good guide on there thats how i first found it lol

Make sure you have the socket on the nut securely and use a piece of pipe or a big wrench on the end of the ratchet to give you more leverage.
