How do i remove the oil filter

The Hyundai Getz takes a spin on oil filter. You just need to locate it under the bonnet and spin it off to replace. If it is tight you may need a tool to help.
Of course this should be done with an oil change, so follow the appropriate procedure

Change oil filter also ..located under skid plate..use filter wrench to remove filter. Be careful as filter is full of oil ..drain in waste pan
wipe filter mounting plate clean..put a thin coating of oil on new filter gasket before spinning it on to the mounting plate..hand tighten and then tighten about 3/4 more turn.. reinstall drain plug. do not over tighten or you can strip the threads.

Where is the oil filter

Not only does this YouTube video show the location of the oil filter on a 2001 Chevrolet Blazer, but it also claims that an entire oil change can easily be done by an average individual with a few common tools.

The oil filter is place underneath a flap on an easily-serviceable part of the car.

How to change the oil in a 2002 chevy trailblazer

Get the oil, and filter first then get it up on jack stands. On the side of the oil pan is a 15mm bolt, remove that bolt and drain the oil. Once that is done put the bolt back in and tighten it up. Next locate the oil filter and spin off counter clockwise, let all the oil drain and then take the new filter and dab a little of the used oil on your finger and smear it on the new seal for the new filter. Tighten up the new filter and then take the car off the jacks. Pop the oil filler cap and add oil. Once you have done that start the car for 60 seconds then turn it off and check your oil level. Add more oil if needed. Then your done.

How to change the oil on a 1999 ford expedition

oil filter located inside of front drivers side fender. lay down and look up you will see the filter in the front of the fender. oil drain plug located on the back of the black oil pan I think its a 15mm bolt unbolt let drain. When done draining put it back in the oil pan. next pull oil filter off turn counter clockwise and put new filter back on then fill with 6quarts of oil. I think its 5w-30 but you can use 10w-30 won't hurt it.

Oil light comes on, yet there appears to be sufficient oil in the engine

Probably in need of an oil change, if it hasn't been done recently.If that isn't the case, the oil sending unit might be faulty, that is usually located around the oil filter housing.

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.

Oil change

locate the oil pan. on it will be a bolt that ull need to undo witha wrench or socket. have a drain pan under and try not to drop the bolt in to the pan cause the oil should come out pretty fast. while thats draining i like to pull the cap off for the oil filler on the top of the engine.
once that is done draining if u are to replace the oil filter which i always do every oil change. locate it. and remove it also with the drain bucket underneath. because it will be full of oil., before putting a new oil filter in take one of the new quarts crack it open and pour a small amount into the cap. take ur finger and stick it in it and lube the rubber ring on the new filter. helps seal and prevent it from seizing. once that is in. put the drain plug back in tighten it down and fill up the oil to the specs.
