The oil filter will be tight if it has been on for a long time, they undo anticlockwise, turn to the left,
when replacing do not overtighten. You can purchase oil removal tools cheaply from most motor factors.

Removing the drain plug and oil filter on a 2005 pontiac vibe


They sell octagon shaped oil filter wrench that conforms to your oil filter's shape. Take your replacement oil filter, then call the auto parts store in your area and ask if they carry oil filter wrench for your car, If a standard filter wrench keeps slipping off, wrap 2 or 3 layers of rag to the old oil filer, then attach the oil filter wrench. The drain plug turns left to loosen, right to tighten. If you're using a socket wrench, attach a 1/2-inch pipe to the handle to increase leverage (cheater pipe). Another solution is a strap oil filter wrench

How do you get a stuck oil filter off when the oil filter wrench won't budge it?


Buy one of those filter socket type wrenches. It fits over the filter's end, you put a ratchet wrench in the center drive hole, and turn it to loosen it.
There are 3 or more types of oil filter removers. One should work, or the hillbilly method of driving a screwdriver through the filter and loosening it-done that a few times. You may get oil everywhere, but you sure can get the filter off. You may be surprised by how easily a screwdriver can be punched through a filter. Keep that screwdriver in your toolbox as your favorite oil filter remover-lol;.

Where is the oil filter located?


The engine oil filter is located just right of center if standing in front of the car. By removing the LARGE Black cap with the 36mm nut you will expose the filter element, make sure to do this before draining the oil from the drain plug in the pan. Otherwise the filter will still hold oil until loosened a bit. A typical oil change should go like this.
1. Engine Hot, not running, Loosen filter housing, don't remove yet.
2. Drain Oil, Replace plug.
3. Remove and Replace filter and O-Rings
4. Add oil.

It is very hard to turn, but it will come loose, a cut off allen wrench attached to a pipe works great, as there is no clearance to do it any other way. Have at it cause the allen bolt is pretty hefty.
