Tools for oil change


You only need a few. You need a wrench or socket that fits the oil pan drain plug. Car makers have used all sizes of drain plugs, don't know Saturn's, anywhere from 13 millimeter to 19 millimeter size wrench or socket. One of them will fit yours.
So one wrench (when you find the right one) and you will need a drain pan to catch the oil. Next you will need an oil filter wrench or tool. There are several types and sizes-when you buy the new oil filter you can get the filter remover that fits your filter . A parts person should be able to help you select the right one. Also buy a small funnel to pour new oil into the engine .And don't forget to have a few rags handy to clean up spills and wipe off areas. That's about all that is normally required.

you need to buy first the optimal oil filter to your car dont use a similar then take out the screw of the carter with a wrench, but first take out the cap was in the surface of the motor the one has de label OIL is uses to fill the motor because this help to empty the liquid so quik and put in the floor a recipent for the uslees oil to dispose (use a jack preferably to this action), and continue to take out the oil filter, always be in the back of the motor and you need to taken out by down near of the floor.
and when the motor will empty of oil, put em again the screw in the carter and the new filter for this use the strenght of your hands only (now you can down the jack), and fullfill the motor with 4 or 4 and a half liters (oil a course) better 20w-50w and put the surfece cap of the motor, and thats it you chane your self the oil of your car.

Where is the oil filter for a 2005 chevy cavalier located


ECOTec 2.4 Liter engine (and all ECOTec engine blocks in 4 cylinder sizes) have a cartridge type oil filter housing on the front of the block, driver's side of the vehicle.

The cap must be removed with a wrench, and the filter pulled out, then the new one put in. Now is usually a good time to replace the O-ring on the cap.

Changing oil and filter


If you have never changed your oil before use care:

0.) Safely Jack up vechile
1.) remove oil filler cap
2.) remove oil drain plug on oil pan
3.) Let oil drain into a container
4.) Flush a quart of through with the drain plug removed to get any deposits out.
5.) remove and drain oil filter
6.) install new oil filter(make sure you put some oil on the filters gasket by hand)
7.)Install oil drain plug
8.) Re-fill with oil
9.) Put oil filler cap back on

Hope this helps and again use with care if you have never turned a wrench before, people get hurt easily by being careless while working under a car.
