SOURCE: location of oil filter on a 2007 pontiac g6

Oil filter location for a 2007 Pontiac G6. First open and lift the front hood of car. Its some what right from center on the engine about 9 inches from the radiator. All you will see is a black cap with black plastic nut in the center. You will have to buy a special tool to attach to your socket wrench to remove the cap. Turn it counter clockwise to remove it. Inside is a filter attached to a plastic part and rubber o - ring. The filter is NOT enclosed in a metal casing. Remember how it is positioned as you take it out. Pull off the old filter. Remove the old o - ring. Place new o - ring in place. Place new filter on plastic part and place it back inside the engine. Make sure it is placed in the same way it came out. Screw on plastic cap by hand most of the way. The tighten with special tool and socket wrench clockwise, but not too tight. This is now complete. Now you can drain out the old oil from the oil pan underneath the car. Remove hex screw with long wrench for more leverage. One to 2 hours later place hex screw back in by hand and tighten with wrench. Now add about 4 1/2 quarts of 5W30 oil only. Check oil level on dip stick. Add more oil if necessary. Job complete!!!

Have a 2006 pontiac g6 leaking oil above starter where is it coming from?


I always buy a service manual from advance or some parts supplier for every vehicle I own, that way the manual tells me how the parts are mounted to the motor and their location to the rest of the motor.
I am not sure where the starter is located on a Pontiac G6 but look above it if you have to use a flashlight, if your oil filter is near it, make sure it is tight and not loose.
Sometimes valve pan gaskets leak and run down the side of motor making us believe oil is coming from another place, just start looking and you will find it.

The sensor is located on the front of the engine, under the intake manifold to the right. It's to the left of the oil filter housing above the starter. The electrical connector is clipped to the oil dipstick tube.

Where are the camshaft actuator valves located on a 2006 Pontiac G6 GTP 3.9L V6


I believe you are thinking of the wrong kind of valve. You do not have solenoid valves, you have mechanical valves that open and close off of the lobes of the camshaft.

My oil light in the dash board is on on my 2007 pontiac g6 v6 the one with the oil can dripping so i got my oil changed and its still on what should i do?


that is the light to let you know there is no oil pressure (in theory). If the engine is not making any unusual noises than its probably just a bad oil pressure switch. The switch it typically located near the oil filter. usually a 1 1/16 oil pressure socket is needed to remove and replace the switch.

Cant find the power steering for a 2006 pontiac g6 (v6 engine)?


In 2006 Pontiac put ELECTRIC power steering in the G6's.

Your looking under the hood in the right location its just under that. its all electrical. Must have been not such a good idea because they switched back to normal power steering in 2007.

Oil filter location


The V6 has a screw on filter unlike the 4 cylinder which has a cartridge filter. The filter is located in one of 2 positions depending on which V6 you have. On one V6 it is located under the car towards the front where there is a splash guard that is held in place by two thumb screws. Remove the thumb screws take out the splash guard and there it is. On the other V6 it is located under the air tube that comes from the air filter where you will see a nut about the size 3/4 or bigger just unscrew it and change your oil filter.
