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.

Cannot get oil plug off of oil pan to change oil

Hello, dont mean to sound rude but double check to make sure your on the right screw. The screw should be towards the bottom of the oil panpossible at a slight angle to drain the oil. No special tools are needed normally a socket set will get the job done not exactly sure on the size. Try some locking pliers, lock it tight as possible around the screw and tap on the the handle with a hammer or somethin solid. I recently had the same proble with my oil pan screw thats how I got it off. Replace the screw once it comes off. Hope this is helpful.

I need to change the oil on my 94 BMW 740IL. How do I do this? Do I need special tools?

Changing oil in the BMW 740iL is no different than other cars. If you are not comfortable with this find a trusted German Automotive mechanic to do it for you.
You will need a large socket to remove the oil filter housing cover. The BMW tool is expensive. You can use large channel lock pliers with a smooth jaw or place a small strip of cardboard (like cereal box) over the teeth on regular pliers so you don't damage the cover.

What size socket do I need to change the oil and brakes.

The oil drain plug is a 13 mm. The tools for the brakes, a 10 mm socket for the caliper pins, a flat head screwdriver, or a meduim size prybat to get the calipers out of the mounting bracket, and a 4" C-clamp to compress the pistons into the calipers so you can put the new pads on.

I was told I need to replace the oil sending unit on my 1994 Jeep Cherokee Country. I bought a Haynes Repair Manual, but I have not been able to find where the oil sending unit is located, or how to...

The switch is near the oil filter. It can be done with a pair of channel locks or pliers or a deep well socket if you have the correct size. If using pliers make sure you latch on to the metal part near the base.

Stripped oil plug

If you use a good pair of vise grips you may be able to get it off if you adjust the visegripes just beyond your ability to clamp them and then proceed to clamp them shut with a large pair of channel lock pliers, if this does not work drill the appropriate size hole through the bolt and tap in a large easy out bolt extractor into the hole drilled and proceed to use a star socket
on the end of the extractor to unsrew the frozen oil pan bolt.

Finding oil filter on 2007 toyota highlander hybrid

The filter access door is located under vehicle to the right near the front (about 24 inches forward of the oil drain plug). By removing two 10-mm hex nuts, you will see a cap that is removed using a ratchet extension. You will need a pair of Channel Lock pliers that is able to spread to at least 4 inches across to unscrew the filter housing. If it is similar to the 2008 you will need to keep the old housing and just replace the paper filter and "o" rings.

Good Luck
