    It's plastic and has a paper filter inside. A screwdriver will destroy the part and you will have to tow the car or order a new filter canister. and top cover.

How do i change the oil in my 96 gmc sonoma


the bottom of the engine is the oil drain plug when the engine is cold put a container under the engine and loosen and remove the oil drain plug engine and also remove the cap off the engine (the valve cover) that to facilitate drainage of the oil, allow to completely empty engine oil, then remove the oil filter which is next to the engine using a wrench to remove engine oil filters (eye, when removing oil filter is normal that you can throw a little oil through the filter) use a cloth to clean .... also remove the dipstick engine oil and clean with the cloth .... when it stops bouncing oil ... place the screw down the motor and adjust. then lightly lubricate the rubber seal of new filter or with a little oil (this is to lubricate the seal fit oil filter) then place the oil filter using the filter wrench and adjust (please do not adjust too tightly as it can break the new filter) then pour the new oil according to the number of manufacturer .. Ej 10w 30, 10w 40 ect ... remember to take the correct amount depending on which type of engine has and measuring the oil level measurement with the rod

I need to change the oil and oil filter how mutch oil do i need and what grade for a citroen xsara 1587cc petrol


Oil filter replacement:

1. Removing:
"a" tabs
(1) Filter element protective cover
(2) Seal
(3) Filter element of the oil filter
(4) Plunger tube.
Untighten the filter element protection cover.
The filter element protection cover incorporates a 27 mm on flats Allen screw with 2 lugs at "a" which enable it to be held in a Facom S27 HLA socket.
Remove the cover (1).
2. Repair: When removing the filter element, the plunger tube ( 4) frees the oil return pipe, thus permitting the oil remaining in the filter element to return to the engine sump.
The filter element ( 3) and plunger tube (4) assembly should be replaced at every service.
Filter element protective cover : Tightening torque : 2,5 (0; -0,5) daNm. Proceed in the reverse order to removal.

Oil filter gasket blowing out with on minutes of restarting after oil filter & engine oil changed.


Hi hope this helps.
When you removed the old filter, did you check if the old oil filter rubber gasket was removed also.
Some time when you remove the oil filter the old o-ring will get stuck on the filter housing.
Then when you place the new filter on you have what is called a double gasket.
this will cause you to leak oil rapidly.
I would remove the filter and check for a double gasket.
Hope this helps FixYa
leave feedback please.

Information on how to remove oil filter housing


Removing your oil filter housing is a simple task with the correct tools. You will need to evacuate the oil in the drain pan before removing the filter housing. You need a torx bit to remove the housing. The oil filter housing is located near the distributor cap. You can unbolt the housing by unscrewing the torx bolt on the outside of the neck. The filter and the housing will come out.
