Question about Cars & Trucks
Front right wheel does not want to turn when we took the tire off to change the oil. car vears to the right also.
Check that the caliper is free to slide on the mounting pins It is necessary so that the caliper body can self centralise and let the brake pads come of the disc rotor. When the body seizes on the pins then one side of the caliper will have the pad in constant contact with the rotor and makes for bad braking and low economy

Warm the vehicle first you may have to jack it up but you don't have to get the tires off to ground. With the vehicle off in park and the parking brake on and you should caulk the rear wheels with apeice of wood 2x4 4x4.Get a wrench that fits vary tight a box wrench is best you don't want to damage the head of this bolt the oil pan drain plug bolt. Loosen the drain plug so you can turn it with your fingers then put your oil pan under the plug and take it out all the way so the oil goes into the pan. Let it drain 10 minutes or so you can be working on getting the oil filter off. Depending where to filter is mounted on the bottom of the block or if you have remote oil lines that usely go the the bottom of the radiator where there will be a small axess door. You will need an oil filter wrench or strap wrenches work well to lossen the filter but don't remove until the oil is done draining from the engine. When the draining slows to a drip clean and install the oil drain plug don't try to over tighten it will have a gasket or seal you don't to over compress this gasket wipe clean with a rag. Then slide your oil pan under the filter and unscrew by hand this will get a little messy sohave a rag with you. You won't get a lot of oil that comes out of the engine but the filter will be full of oil and much heavyer then to new one. Try to flip it over so to oil goes into the pan then you can get the pan old filter out of the way clean where the new filters base gasket will contact wipe with the rag . Put a small amount of oil on the new filters base gasket you can stick your finger in the old oil and run it around the gasket screw it on by hand as tight as you can then tight en with your filter or strap wrench 1/4 turn Then put your new oil in read your oweners manual for engine capacity and look for with the filter because it will take more to fill the filter. Start check for oil leaks shut off check your oil on the dip stick there will be an opperating range over add oil and full you should be in the middle of that . Then pour the old oil in a container with a funnel and you can take to the auto parts store an dispose of it put the oil filter in the box the new one came in and your done as soon you take the vehicle down off the jack
