A standard oil filter "cap" type remover will work. I bought one at Wal-Mart for a few bucks.
Before I bought the remover I just used two large bolts threaded through a piece of wood - spaced about 2.5" apart. Worked, but not as easy to use as the real thing that fits on to a 3/8" ratchet.

Where is the oil filter located on a 2002 Aurora?


It's on the front side of the engine between the engine and the radiator and a little to the passenger side. Reach it from the bottom of the car just behind the shield.
If, you have the 3.5L it's internal. Remove the cap on the oil pan with an oil filter wrench and then replace the cartridge.

How minny quarts of oil dose a 96 olds aurora hold


A typical automobile holds 4-5 quarts of oil.....Depends on the size of motor. If changing yourself, Drain out all oil, change filter, put oil plug back in. Put 3- 31/2 quarts back into car. put oil cap on and start car. Let run for 2-3 minutes then shut back off. Wait for a few. Pull out dipstick wipe, put back in then pull out a second time...Now you know how much you need to top off level.

I need "step by step" instructions on how to replace the fuel filter on my 2001 Dodge Ram 3500 pickup. Thanks !


Here you go if it is a diesel:
A. FUEL FILTER REPLACEMENT:
The fuel filter is located inside of the fuel filter housing
1. Unscrew and remove fuel filter cap at top of fuel filter housing. To unscrew, attach tool to 6-sided hex center of cap. Do not loosen cap at outer edge. The fuel filter cap is designed to remove filter while pulling up on cap.
2. Remove O-ring from cap and discard.
3. The filter is retained to cap with little fingers. Carefully pry a couple of them off from old filter.
B. FUEL FILTER REPLACEMENT:
1. Thoroughly clean inside of filter housing, cap, etc. with clean diesel fuel
2. Fill filter housing (canister) with clean diesel fuel. NOTE: If you do not do this, you will have to manually bleed air out of system later. No fun.
3. Snap new fuel filter to bottom of cap.
4. Install new O-ring
5. Apply lihgt film of clean diesel oil to cap O-ring
6. Load filter/cap into housing.
7. Tighten cap to 25 ft. lbs. torque. Do NOT over-tighten.

Where is oil filter located on 2000 olds intrigue


Not exactly sure on the intrigue, but on the Aurora 3.5 it is a cartridge filter accessed from a big black cap on the bottom of the oil pan. Use an oil filter wrench to get it off.

Change fuel filter on 1995 olds aurora


Hi, here is a step by step guide that will help you with the replacement of your fuel filter.

Step1 Put on your protective glasses and gather your tools. An assortment of wrenches and screwdrivers are necessary. The ones you use will depend upon the vehicle. Step2 Elevate the vehicle. This can be done by using a jack and jack stands, or drive-up ramps. Do not rely solely on a single jack, as this is very dangerous. Step3 Find the fuel filter. The location varies from vehicle to vehicle. It’s a safe bet to start your search near the fuel tank under the body. You can also reference your owner’s manual or call your local dealership. Step4 Remove the protective covering that guards the fuel filter. Most filters have some kind of plastic covering over them to prevent damage, and can be removed by a common wrench, hex wrench, or screwdriver. Step5 Remove the fuel lines attached to the fuel filter. There are a number of ways these hoses might be linked to the pump, such as links, brackets or clips. Use either a screwdriver or wrench, whichever the attachments require. Step6 Cap the fuel lines with a pencil or golf tee, and keep them tilted toward the drainage canister. Step7 Remove the fuel filter from the assembly, noting which way it was oriented. An arrow will likely be on the filter. It should be pointed toward the engine, and away from the fuel tank. Step8 Install you new fuel filter. Be sure that it is oriented so the fuel arrow points toward the engine. Step9 Reattach the hoses and guard.


-WARNING-




  • Do not over-tighten the fuel filter. Tighten to hand-strength, and let it be. Over-tightening can cause damage and fuel leakage.
  • Change your fuel filter approximately every 10 or 15 thousand miles, but more frequently if you often drive gravel or dirt roads. Vehicles older than 10 years might have rusty fuel tanks, which also contributes to clogging.
  • A new fuel filter is cheaper than a busted fuel pump, which is one of the more serious consequences of a severely clogged fuel filter.
  • Sometimes special tools are required to remove the Ford fuel lines and filters. Ford provides these tools with your vehicle or upon request.
  • Make sure that the engine is cool. Any heat could spark a fire.
  • Be sure that the car is secure before venturing underneath. Use a jack and jack stands, or drive-up ramps. Give the car a few nudges to Be sure it will not collapse.
  • Never smoke or light matches when changing a fuel filter.
Please rate and god bless:)

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!!!
