Not reverse thread, just really stuck on there! try using a good strap wrench as close as possible to the engine end of the filter (it's stronger there). Worst case, I've seen some that were so tight that you need to drive a large screwdriver through it and pretty much destroy it to get it off. Don't do that till all options are exhausted. When putting the new one on wipe the gasket with some clean oil to prevent this from happening again.

NO, it is NOT reverse threaded! This is messy, but take a Philips #3 screwdriver with a long, strong blade, and ram it through the filter about 1.5 inches away from the mounting location (not too close, or you could damage the threads of the threaded filter attachment tube). Slowly apply pressure counterclockwise. It should open. Hope this helps. Bilal Hassan Clarksville, MD

Often change transmission fluid

Hi Costas, Very good idea and often overlooked by too many. Its good to change the fluid once or tice a year depending on the number of miles driven, but even if the vehicle remains parked for the year, it needs replacing. Drain the fluid and drop the oil pan,and remove and replace the internal oil filter. (Some Mitsubishi vehicles have external oil filters fitted making the job easier. Replace it and the drain plug and then refill. Check the level with the engine running at idle speed and after getting in with park brake engaged and pressing the foot brake and changing through each gear, pausing between each change (including reverse) and return to N. Check oil level on dip stick. Regards John

Oil filter mount is stripped

hi John, here in New Zealand we can buy repair threads for this type
of problem. You should find them in your local auto parts store.
Failing that a good engineer should be able to run one up on a
lathe in no time at all.
happy new year

Just purchased a 1994 Firebird, took it in for a smog test, and it failed at 15MPH, measuring 522 while the max allowed is 483. Car had been in storage for two years with the battery disconnected. Also low...

522 what? Get it registered. Yes it needs to be driven, Yes do an oil change. Add some injector cleaner, I recommend Chevron TECHRON fuel system cleaner. The shop that is checking it most likely knows what it needs to be repaired. If you dont trust them to properly repair it, find a different shop.

How often should I change the oil in my 2002 Nissan Frontier?

Some people change oil at 3000 miles,most people don't really care or keep track
I would say 3 times a year,if you drive less than 10,000 per year
4 times a year ,up to 20,000 miles per year driven
Use at least semi or full synthetic oil

I just want to know the mpg for a 1994 toyota camry le 4 cylinder it has 214,000 but looks very good?????????????

If this is a car you own ... figure it out ... miles driven divided by gallons. Example ... drove 100 miles, then bought 10 gallons of gas to fill up the tank = 10 MPG This is an example ... not an estimate of the MPG of your vehicle.

Here is what I found when I googled your question:

What motor oil is best to use in my 1991 Jaguar xj6 with 108,000 miles on it and how often should it be changed

Pennzoil High Mileage 10w30 as well as a Fram High Mileage filter. 10w30 is an all around oil that's suitable for ALL temperature ranges, except for below zero degrees Fahrenheit...possibly -10 degrees. Any other oil has a range that's not acceptable in ranges above 60 degrees Fharenheit or below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. I would also recommend putting a BG® product in your oil when changing it called MOA. This will "clean" the mechanical parts of detergents left from all the other oils used thus far that have stuck to various components. Insofar as changing the oil? Every 5000 miles, with the newer oils available is enough. The old 3000 mile rule is over-kill now a days..

Car is slow shifting into reverse.. it takes a second or two after i put it in reverse, and trans also does not like shifting itself into the last gear till it driven a couple miles

Have you ever changed the transmission fluid and filter?? If your car has more than 80,000 on it, it's due. DO NOT go to one of those Jiffy-Oil type places that just **** out the fluid. You need someone that actually drops the pan (that's where the filter is) changes the filter AND GASKET (very important). I might recommend an additive like SEAFOAM. I've had a few GM cars and this seemed to cure the problem for a while... Did it twice on an Olds 88 and it lasted 256,000 miles.

Blue smoke out of exhaust, replaced turbo, still smokes a lot when engine revs

have you driven it at least 100 miles since repair?, the oil residue builds up inside the exhaust and burns off very slowly from the previous failed turbo seal.

My 1996 Volvo 960 2.9 ltr drives in all Position except reverse

I am not 100% but this should be a good place to start and it will cost you nothing. You need to get under the car. You will see that there is a thin long shaft that is theaded on the end. It should have a rubber gromet at the connector. I believe that your gromet is worn out or perhaps you need to simple adjust the threaded end to be tight as your shifter is traveling to far. I am not an expert, but I have been all over my 960 for the past 261K miles and 10 years of ownership.

Good luck.

I have a 94 4.0L and I use 10W-40 in the winter and 20W-50 in the summer. It keeps the pressure up and it doesn't smoke when I start it because of the valve seals. It takes 8 quarts everytime including the filter. 2 gallon jugs. I change it about every 4,000 miles.
