I have a 2003 Mazda Miata sport edition. I checked my oil and nothing registered I just changed it 3 months ago. I don't see any physical evidence of leakage and no black smoke from tail pipe. What could...


I just had the same problem. I bought a 04 Miata 2 days ago that had just had an oil change. When I checked the oil yesterday and nothing registered on the stick. Then today I noticed some oil on the driveway. I looked at the oil filter with the engine running and saw the leak. There is an oil cooler pick up cylinder is between the oil filter and the block. with the oil filter removed, there is a nut that is not a locking nut which can back off. I took the nut off, cleaned the rubber seal ring between the cylinder and the engine block. I put everthing back together and no more leak. If the seal ring is damaged, it costs $12 ( I Priced one today but didn't need it. This may be the problem you are having.

What if any special tools are required for a


No special tools required. MAYBE!

I say maybe because if you've ever taken you car into a quick lube place and they've changed your filter they are Notorious for installing the new filter on TOO TIGHT!. They are actually told to do this so the owner is forced to come back and have them do the next oil change. Its almost criminal.

The plug to drain the oil from the car is a simple 5/8in bolt, a socket or open ended wrench with work just fine.

The Oil filter SHOULD be able to unscrew by hand. Now if its on there too tight. There is a tool at any auto parts store called a Oil filter Wrench. They run around 10-20 bucks. all it is a handle with a metal ribbon that loops around the filter and allows a better grip.

You can also get away with jamming a screw driver into the filter and using that for leverage to unscrew it from the engine. *Note* This is extremely messy!!!

Just remember when installing a new filter to tighten it one half turn after it becomes tight. It does not need to be cranked on there hard.

Hope this Helps and thanks for using FixYa.com

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.

Oil Change Instructions for VW Touareg 2004


Hi,

I just did an oil change service on my Touran last night (same principal as the Toureg). The Touran has a bleeder (there is a seperate screw type cover under the filter) to release the excess oil in filter (not sure it the Toureg has the same)The aluminum casing around the filter is a bit tough to remove, but turning it anti-clockwise with a little bit of force should do it. Try not to use the special tools that are available to grip the casing as you may dent it. The sump plug can be removed with standard tools. I am still working on the reset option for the 'service now' warning
