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.

Where is the oil filter on 2006 hyundai sonata 3.3 l dohc

It uses a filter element and cap, not a cartridge. Look for a black plastic dome on top of the engine, between the cylinder heads. There are a couple of o-rings to be very watchful for as well, so they do not become lost! There are (or were) two different filter elements available, so make sure to obtain the correct one.

Is there a certain torque you need to tighten the oil filter cap? If so what is it and also I have tried hand tighten and then turning a 1/4 turn with a oil filter wrench. this worked for a little while...

Tighten to 18 foot lbs. and be sure to replace the o-ring in the cap these are prone to nicks and than leaking, put clean oil on o-ring before putting back on housing!

2006 BMW 530i with a slow/small oil leak.

Common oil leaking areas on that engine is the plastic lid on the oil filter,and the gasket in between the oil filter adapter and the engine block.I would suggest you take it to a qualified shop and have them diagnose the oil leak.

Where`s oil filter 08 santa fe

It is located on the top of you engine compartment, under the hood, to the right (Driver Side) of the engine and left of your battery. You need to take off the plastic engine cover (two bolts and four screw nuts) to expose it. It is cylinder in shape with a black plastic cap, which screws off to show the oil filter. The filter is different than your normal one, it doesn't have a outside metal cover to it.
When you purchase your replacement filter, it will come with two "O" rings, one small and one big. The big one replaces the "O" ring at the top of the screw part of your black cap and the small one goes on the bottom of the same cap.

2006 hyundai sonata oil filter leak

I finally figured this out. I was putting the o-ring on incorrectly. I actually had two o-rings installed.
The o-ring should not be visible when it is tightened down. The plastic should be touching the metal housing. The o-ring sits inside the housing, right above the threads, but not at the top. Two pictures attached._388.jpg
