I believe you are talking about the oil filter removal tool that looks like a small half-cup? If so, they are always getting stuck on the filter. Easiest way I know of is to hold the filter and then gently tapping the edge of the tool with a hammer. It should come off with just a few light taps.

How to change an oil pan gasket?

You do not have much information to reply to.

First, buy the proper gasket, oil filter and enough oil for your vehicle so that you can complete the job. You will also need a drain pan large enough to hold all of the oil you drain out of the engine (5 quarts is usually what you need). You will also need sockets, wrenches a rubber mallet to remove the pan as well as rags to wipe up any spills.

You will need enough access under the vehicle to crawl under it and place the drain pan under the drain plug. (you might need to either use ramps or jack the car up to gain access. Be careful.)

Use a wrench to remove the drain plug turning counter clockwise to remove. The oil will then drain out. (make sure you have a rag to wipe up any spilled oil). Use an oil filter wrench to remove the oil filter from the engine.

Look up at the pan and you will see lots of small bolts around the upper part of the pan. These are what holds the pan to the engine. They must be removed. If the pan is stuck to the engine after removing all of the bolts, us the rubber mallet to GENTLY tap around the top part of the pan to break it free from the engine (be very careful as the metal of the oil pan is very thin and easily bent).

Lower the pan from the vehicle and clean, removing all traces of the old gasket from the pan as well as the engine. (use a putty knife and be careful not to put any gouges in the pan or engine surface.

Place the new gasket on the top of the pan, place it up against the engine and hand tighten all of the bolts. Then using a socket, gently tighten the bolts (clockwise) using a cross pattern to keep the gasket from warping. (do NOT over tight the bolts as they will break off fairly easily) Do not forget to tighten the oil drain plug as well.

Replace the new oil filter on the engine and add the proper amount of oil.

Start and run the engine and check for any leaks.
Turn off and let sit for a minute and re-check the oil level.

Oil leak from oil filter housing

  1. First check and make sure the filter is not lose.
  2. You might want to pull the oil filter and check to see if the gasket has spit or if more than one was accidentally put on during the last oil change,
  3. Should that check out there then, with the oil filter off, take and try to rotate the housing itself a bit. Just see if there is some movement. If there is then there is a nut that you can tighten up. It the nut will be on the same bolt shaft that the oil filter screws onto. Sometimes when taking off a really stuck filter the housing can come loose.
  4. There are also two hoses attached to the oil filter housing. Make sure they have not ruptured or that the clap has not failed.

A ton of pressure goes through the oil filter housing. You don't want to drive the vehicle until this is fixed because all your oil can leak out rather quick and seize your engine. Regards, Tony

Installing a new fuel filter in a 2001 hyundai tiburon

There is two possible locations. One is inline which is under the car, the other is in engine compartement. First you need to remove the gas cap and release fuel pressure. Also relieve pressure on fuel rail with a rag to catch excess fuel. Than use a flex nut wrench to remove filter, or remove claps that hold on filter. Some filters require special cheap plastic tools that will remove the filter connections.
Remove filter and replace with new one. and your done.

Small oil leak

Most likely it is your ATF container is leaking were the two hoses on the bottom connect to it. Also there is an o-ring on the cap that can be replaced. Replace the hose clamps at the bottom with quality claps with rounded over edges. Try this part number at Bavarian Autosport, CL 16-25. Here is the BMW part number for the o-ring: 32411128333. The o-ring on the oil filter cover comes with and is replaced with the filter.
