The oil fill cap? try warming up your engine first, some of them have to be in a special position to enable the cap to open like a child proof cap on a pill bottle, if its siezed carefully spray some penetrating oil on the cap where it meets the edge of the cap, heat it carefully with your hair dryer not hot just warm enough for the oil to break that corrosion bond, carefully use pliers if you have to, and if you must, you can always break the cap off and replace it, and if none of that works, ask the first guy you see in jeans with a bandana

Where is the oil filter Located on the 2011 Lexus GX460


The oil filter on a Lexus GX460 is a cartridge type filter located at the bottom front of the engine. It is difficult to see without removing the front engine undercover, which is basically a steel plate shield held to the vehicle by 4 bolts. Once the shield is removed, the oil filter housing is visible right behind and just above the stabilizer bar. The housing is positioned sideways and a large pair of channel locks can be used to unscrew the black housing cap. Make sure you have a drip pan ready because a fair amount of oil will drain once the cap is removed. After the cap is removed, it's a simple matter of removing the cartridge filter with your fingers and popping in the new one. A new rubber o-ring should be included with the replacement filter.

Where is oil filter on 2006 hhr 2.2?


Hello, the oil filter location is on the front of the engine, just below the right side of intake manifold.



  • Use a 32 mm (1 1/4 in) socket on the hex on top of the oil filter cap, or an oil filter wrench on the outside diameter of the oil filter cap.
  • Remove the oil filter cap and filter.
  • Remove the filter from the cap.

    Where's the oil filter located at?


    That has a canister style fuel filter. The cap is located right next to the oil pan on the passenger rear corner roughly of the oil pan. It will be black and made out of plastic. You will need a filter cup to remove the cap. Once the cap is removed you will be able to replace the oil filter.

    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.

    I need to change my oil and filter on a BMW 745I 2002, does anyone know how to do it.


    The oil filter is located underneath the vehicle next to the drain plugand accessed through a removable trim cover. If I remember correctly the drain plug is a 7mm allen. The oil filter has a drain plug in it to predrain before removing the filter cap. I do not recommend removing the plug because it strips out sometimes. Instead you need to use a socket and loosen the cap slowly. Your engine will take 8qts bmw syn 5w30 oil. I like the factory oil because it is proven extended life oil. When reinstalling the drain plug make sure to replace the crush washer. Also, make sure to replace the oring on the oil filter cap and lube before reinstalling.

    G5 oil change


    the filter is a cartridge filter. you will need a 1 1/4 inch socket to remove the filter. it is indeed on the left side. you will have to remove the oil filler cap, then remove the cowling/cover (plastic with foam padding-about the size of a regular pillow). the cowling is removed by just lifting straight up on the entire piece of plastic.with the filler cap off and the cowling off, you will find a round piece of plastic with a 1 1/4 inch hexagonal shaped head. use your 1 1/4 inch socket (or large crescent wrench) to remove the oil filter cover. the old cartridge pops off of the round oil filter cover, new one pops on, use new oil on the green gaskets, tighten the oil filter cover with new cartridge in to it's place and the rest of the oil change is the same as most every other american car. a picture of the oil filter at http://www.power-21.com/FramPower21i/Image.aspx?f=images/Fram/CH9018_012406.jpg

    Oil filter


    On the V6, the filter is located on the bottom front of the engine on the passenger side. It is silver and looks like an oil filter cap wrench. It is not the traditional oil filter where you replace the entire unit. With this type you remove the cap, drain the oil, and replace the paper filter element and 2 gaskets.

    to get the cap off use a standard 65mm-67mm filter wrench "end cap" that you stick on your 3/8" drive ratchet like this one..
