How to change oil pan on 2001 x5 bmw 3.0


remove the reinforcement plate under the engine. 4 x 17mm nuts. You will need to hold the back side of each bolt with a box end wrench or it will just spin. Then you will see the oil pan. Remove the 10mm nuts and the pan will come off. . (Drain the oil first!). When you replace the reinforcement plate, use new bolts. They are one-time use. (Really).

How do i change the oil on my 2001 dodge neon?


Raise the vehicle off the ground and support with jack stands(both front wheels off the ground), chock the wheels, buy and oil change drain pan and a oil filter strap wrench for that filter application(parts store will supply the proper wrench), have available a set of box wrenches 1/2"-3/4".
Purchase the proper replacement oil filter, and oil, be careful not to overfill the oil check the level after filling three quarts in crankcase, also only hand tighten the oil filter, and be sure the drain pan bolt has a gasket on it and it is tightened securely.

Hello-what size oil wrench would I need to change the oil filter on a 2001 VW Jetta TDI? Is there a particular brand or model needed?


not really. The TDI's have a drop in filter, and you will only be loosening the cover that the filter rests in. It should be hand tightened from the dealership, so a simple oil filter wrench will work. rubber gloves can sometimes disengage it also.

1997 bmw 540 abs light on


any number of failures can cause the light to come on, the most common is the individual wheel speed sensors, u can have the dealer test the system and get a trouble code out of it that will lead them in the right direction to the faulty circuit or sensor.
As long as the light is on the system is disabled.

How do I change oil filter cartridge on 1995 BMW 325is?


I would first clean up the oil around the housing with brake cleaner. Take the car for a quick run and see where the oil is coming from.

If the housing looks good, then simply take the cap off of the oil filter housing. Remove the existing filter and discard the o-rings. Make sure you lubricate the new o-rings with some oil before installation. This could be why it is leaking now. It may have been overlooked.

Once the o-ring is seated drop in the new filter and replace the housing cap. Tighten the cap to 18 ft lbs. Start the engine, making sure the warning light goes out, showing you have oil pressure.

If your oil is that new then I would not bother with a changeover.

I hope this helps. It is an easy filter to change. BMW doesn't make too many things easy.

Good luck
