Tools for oil change


You only need a few. You need a wrench or socket that fits the oil pan drain plug. Car makers have used all sizes of drain plugs, don't know Saturn's, anywhere from 13 millimeter to 19 millimeter size wrench or socket. One of them will fit yours.
So one wrench (when you find the right one) and you will need a drain pan to catch the oil. Next you will need an oil filter wrench or tool. There are several types and sizes-when you buy the new oil filter you can get the filter remover that fits your filter . A parts person should be able to help you select the right one. Also buy a small funnel to pour new oil into the engine .And don't forget to have a few rags handy to clean up spills and wipe off areas. That's about all that is normally required.

Where is oil plug on a 2005 volkswagen jetta and what tool is needed?


Should be on the back side of the oil pan about dead center. At least for the 1.8 and 2.0 liter engines. You will need a 19mm wrench or socket (if its the O.E. drain plug). Be careful when tightening the drain plug after draining the oil. The oil pan is aluminum and we replace a fair amount of them because the threads for the drain plug are stripped out. The drain plug only needs to be torqued to 22 ft-lb.

I want to know how to service my 2000 Audi A3 myself. Oil change, oil filter change, plugs. What tools do I need?


You'll need some Metric wrenches and sockets and a rachet. Also, an oil filter wrench to fit your oil filter and a spark plug gapper. Don't forget to check the air filter and replace the fuel filter.

Were is the oil filter on my scion xd 2008


2008 Scion xD oil filter is a cartridge (element only) type. It is located under a heavy, black plastic cap right next to the oil drain plug. To remove the cap, you will need a Toyota "Special Service Tool" or an Assenmacher Specialty Tools "TOY640" or similar cap wrench. Toyota is the only source for the oil filter element; make sure you get a new o-ring (should be in the box with the filter element) and a new drain plug gasket.

Looking to change the oil on my V6 AWD 2004 SRX. Where is the drain plug and filter case located? What size wrenches are needed?


Locate the drain plug, size 13mm, drain the oil, replace drain plug. The oil filter is located by the dipstick. Replace filter put 5.6qtz of 5w-30 synthetic and you are good to go. and the oil filter is located to the right of the engine cover if your looking in at it. It looks like a small cast iron canister with a nut on top (its all molded together). unscrew the top of that and it is in there, the oil wrench come and can adjust to different size, I assume you never done an oil change and don't have any tools. go to any local auto parts store and tell them you need everything from oil,filter,removal tools, oil pan, funnel and they will give you everything you need ans some advice. when you put the filter back on, I would only do hand tighten. make sure you rub a bit of oil around the new rubber seal on your new filter using your figure. Buy the time you spend for all the tools what what need for oil change you will spend as much as having the pro do it, Oil change has been cheaper to change now day compair doing it your self. many places are offering 19.95 to 29.95 oil change, its worth all the hassle to let them do it. do the math, filter 6.00, 6qt of oil 27.00, tools 8.00, funnel 3.00, oil pan 12.00 right there is 56.00 buck plus you get to craw under the car and get dirty.

NEWBIE: How difficult is it to change the oil and oil filter?


ok, this should be pretty basic but if you have any doubts buy a repair manual for your car from auto zone or checker or wherever you shop.
first off buy the new filter and the oil, that filter should look very similar to the one that is on your car, although keep in mind that the color and sometimes even shape can be a little different, but you have a basic idea of what to look for.
the oil filter will be on the motor itself, as well as the drain plug, usually both are easier to access from underneath the car.  remove the oil filter counter-clockwise, some oil will leak out at this point and may be hot, so be careful, this may require a tool depending on how tight it is, the tool is usually relatively cheap.  NEVER use an oil filter tool to tighten your filter, it is only for removal and may damage the filter adapter, when you put the new filter on tighten it as much as you can with just your hands, this should be plenty tight. you will also need a drain pan, preferrably sealable so you can take it with you when it is full to be dumped (usually checker/auto zone will have an oil dump). 
next loosen and take out the drain plug, this will be on the bottom of the oil pan, which is the bottom part of the motor itself.  when the oil stops (or reduces to a very fine flow being almost all gone), put the drain plug back in and tighten it down.  add 3 or 4  quarts of oil, start the car and let it run for 15 to 20 seconds, this will fill up the oil filter, then check the oil and add as needed.
hope this helps.
