It's a spin on filter which just screws off counter clock wise. Then you spin on the new one after lubricating the seal just hand tighten. Instructions on filter usually Are you sure your are talking about the oil filter? The treaded stud that the oil filter screws on to is removable also but I have never seen one come out unless you make a concerted effort with an Allen key

1990 triton oil pressure relief valve location


Hi Lee, There are two oil pressure relief valves on most vehicles. One is fitted onto the oil pump assembly and another onto the oil filter housing assembly. The oil pump pressure relief valve is located at the front of the engine and is accessed via a blind nut on the side of the unit. The bolt is in the form of a cap, which when removed can be seen to be holding down under tension a spring, which in turn presses the valve. If the pressure becomes too high the valve body is pushed upwards and releases an amount of oil, thereby maintaining the required pressure. The valve built into the oil filter housing works in much the same way, but its job is to allow oil circulation in the event of a blocked oil filter. regards John

Oil leak from oil filter housing


Hello,
  1. First check and make sure the filter is not lose.
  2. You might want to pull the oil filter and check to see if the gasket has spit or if more than one was accidentally put on during the last oil change,
  3. Should that check out there then, with the oil filter off, take and try to rotate the housing itself a bit. Just see if there is some movement. If there is then there is a nut that you can tighten up. It the nut will be on the same bolt shaft that the oil filter screws onto. Sometimes when taking off a really stuck filter the housing can come loose.
  4. There are also two hoses attached to the oil filter housing. Make sure they have not ruptured or that the clap has not failed.

A ton of pressure goes through the oil filter housing. You don't want to drive the vehicle until this is fixed because all your oil can leak out rather quick and seize your engine. Regards, Tony

Oil filter is spinning in the housing. scared to try to take it out


i believe that that your car has a cartridge filter (paper filter) that goes into a housing and has a cap that you take off to get to it the filter presses into the cap then you screw the cap back on most of the cartridge filter fell off of the caps and sit in the housings by the time you change your oil next.

Information on how to remove oil filter housing


Removing your oil filter housing is a simple task with the correct tools. You will need to evacuate the oil in the drain pan before removing the filter housing. You need a torx bit to remove the housing. The oil filter housing is located near the distributor cap. You can unbolt the housing by unscrewing the torx bolt on the outside of the neck. The filter and the housing will come out.

How to change the oil filter


Put the car on a lift or jacks. Since it has low clearnance you will need lower jacks or use a ramp.

Remove the oil cap and the oil filter. You may need a strap wrench if the oil filter is too tight to come off by hand.

Look for trap door under the metal cover underneath the car. Open the trap door and you will have access to the oil pan drain bolt.

Use 17mm socket to remove the drain bolt and catch oil into a basin.

Remove the oil filter from the oil cap housing. YOu will also have to remove a large and small oil ring as well as a washer. The new filter will come with those. The oil rings must go into the groove to prevent oil from leaking. The filter goes on the cap housing. The washer that comes with the oil filter goes with the drain plug. Take off the old washer drain plug and put on the new washer drain plug and drain bolt once all oil has poured out.

Ratchet in drain bolt and close the trap door. Put on oil filter by hand. Put in 7 quarts of 5w-30 oil. Check with the dipstick as you get to the last half quart.

Replace oil cap, start engine, and check for any indications of leaks.

Fuel filter replacement


Removal & Installation
CAUTION Do not allow fuel spray or fuel vapors to come in contact with a spark or open flame. Keep a dry chemical fire extinguisher nearby. Never store fuel in an open container due to risk of fire or explosion.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4. Disconnect the quick-connect fuel supply line from the filter/regulator nipple.
  5. Depress the locking spring tab, located on the side of the fuel filter/regulator, then rotate 90 degrees and pull out. Be sure the upper and lower O-rings are still on the filter assembly.

How to change bulb on drivers side low beam head light


My niece has a jimmy, they should be the same. The inside should be the high beam, the outside the low, DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS ON NEW BULBS! Oil will cook on them and pop them! Both come off the same way. Take off the big rubber thing. They are soft but over hard plastic. Just pull them off. If you have trouble, you can flip the little wire clips that hold the headlight housing in place, this will give you room to see the rubber caps enough to figure them out better. The bulb assembly rotates CCW counter clockwise, and should slip out easily. Take the wires and plug off. it should be obvious how it pulls off. Snap the new bulb into the wires without touching the glass part. Gently replace in backwards order as you removed it. Put the rubber caps on, they keep water off the bulbs. It will break them!

The passenger side was harder for me. I had to take the air cleaner off, the whole cover and filter.You should be able to see or feel the same type caps, The low beam outside, High beam inside. The same 2 wire clips are there to release the housing. Everything pretty much goes the same, other than the air cleaner has to be removed and replaced. And make sure the rubber cap is replaced! Good Luck and good motoring!

How do I change oil filter cartridge on 1995 BMW 325is?


I would first clean up the oil around the housing with brake cleaner. Take the car for a quick run and see where the oil is coming from.

If the housing looks good, then simply take the cap off of the oil filter housing. Remove the existing filter and discard the o-rings. Make sure you lubricate the new o-rings with some oil before installation. This could be why it is leaking now. It may have been overlooked.

Once the o-ring is seated drop in the new filter and replace the housing cap. Tighten the cap to 18 ft lbs. Start the engine, making sure the warning light goes out, showing you have oil pressure.

If your oil is that new then I would not bother with a changeover.

I hope this helps. It is an easy filter to change. BMW doesn't make too many things easy.

Good luck
