Question about Toyota Corolla
Welcome to Fixya
There is a housing for the oil filter. Please see procedure below:
1. Jack you car up and place jack stands under the car. Get under the car and remove the bolt to release the oil into a pan. Using the 65mm, 14 flute oil wrench cap, loosen the oil filter housing. This will be pretty tight. Make sure and use a 65mm, not a combination oil wrench cap.
2. Once you have the oil filter housing removed, take out the old filter cartridge and old o-ring, which goes around the end of the oil filter housing. Wipe the oil filter housing clean.
3. Slide the new oil filter cartridge into the housing. Lube the new o-ring with new oil. Slide the o-ring over the housing threads into place. Wipe the engine clean where the filter housing connects. Start to screw the filter housing onto the engine by hand. Once you cannot turn it more, use the ratchet and screw till tight.
4. Replace the drain plug and fill with oil.
