I'm guessing the cap cover has separated from the cap base. If you gently pry at the cover, It should just pop off and then you can take a pair of pliers and twist and pull the bottom half off. You'll probably need to buy a new oil cap

How do you change the oil on a 2011 sonata?


Changing the oil in a Hyundai Sonata is an easy task that should be performed every 3,000 miles. Follo the below steps to change the oil on your Hyundai Sonata:
1) Ensure the car is parked on a flat surface. Place a drain pan under the engine. Locate the oil pan directly under the engine. The oil pan will be at the very bottom. Now, unscrew the drain plug at the front of the oil pan with a socket wrench. Allow all the oil to drain out into the oil pan. Tighten the drain plug back into the oil pan with a socket wrench.
2) Locate the oil filter in front of the engine. There will be a cut-out in the protective shield where the oil filter is located. Unscrew the oil filter with a strap wrench. Allow the oil to drain into the oil pan. Place the old filter in with the waste oil.
3) Fill the oil filter with fresh engine oil. Screw the filter on to the filter housing by hand. Do not wrench tighten, which could strip the threads of the filter or filter housing. Open the hood for access to the engine compartment. Unscrew the oil cap on the top of the engine.
4) Pour in three quarts of engine oil. Pull the engine oil dipstick out of the dipstick tube and wipe it clean. Push the dipstick back into the dipstick tube. Pull back out and look at the engine oil level. If the oil on the dipstick does not stop between the two marks on the dipstick, pour in a half quart of oil and check the level again. Do not overfill.
5) Start the car and allow it to run for few minutes. Turn the car off and check the oil level once again. Add another half quart of oil if necessary. Ensure the oil cap is back on the engine and the hood is closed. Hope this helps and if you need any parts for your sonata, this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews http://www.buyautoparts.com/carmodels/Hyundai/Sonata.html

the oil filter is not a regular looking filter, its a cartriage type that goes into a housing, if you open the hood and look on the driverside of motor near the oil fill cap you will see a cover cap with a nut shape head on top, use a 24mm socket on a rachet and unscrew the cover,then pullfilter out, install new filter and replace oring provide with filter on the cap. hope this helps.

How to replace a piston on an 06 sonata


You should not need an engine piston on such a new vehicle.
Do you mean a brake piston or something?

If you threw a timing belt, you don't have to replace pistons, just the valves.

If a piston really were bad, you need to take the head off, drop the oil pan, mark and remove the rod cap, and then push the piston and rod out the top.
If the car was not so new, you would also have to **** the ridge off at the top of the cylinder. But probably unnecessary after only 4 years.

Where is the oil filter ??


Open hood. Take off engine cover, 3 caps pop off with a screwdriver and the are 10mm nuts under that. Before you take off cover there's a vac line clipped in on the passenger side back of the cover- reach around, you'll feel it. Also remove the oil fill cap. When you lift the cover there is a tower shaped thing with a black plastic cap right in front of you- unscrew this and you'll find your oil filter. You DO want to replace the 2 o-rings on the cap. Pay attention to where the o-rings go.

Oh, and you had better be using 5w40 full synthetic oil...

I have a 1985 s10 blazer .. i drained the oil and replaced the plug, and replaced the oil filter .. however, i am unable to remove the oil fill cap. it does not pull out nor unscrew .. it does hand...


If you have any other fittings on the valve cover (pcv valve, breather tube etc) you can put a hose into the valve cover through that hole and fill it. (slowly...most have baffles inside). I have seen engines filled through the dipstick tube also (takes forever though).
Once you get oil in there, bring it to a shop and have someone show you how to get the fill cap off so it is easier next time.
