Oil filter location


The oil filter on your 2004 sunfire is under the air intake hose. you take this hose off by loosening the two clamps that hold it onto the air filter housing and the air intake. Under that is a black cap with a large hex head on it, i believe 1.25 inch. that is the oil filter cap. take that off and pull the used oil filter off the bottom.

How to change the oil on a 2004 dodge ram 1500


Go under the car and locate the oil pan directly beneath the engine and use a wrench to remove the drain bolt after placing a container under it. If you need to change the oil filter, that is also accessed from underneath, and you will need an appropriate sized oil filter wrench to remove it. (It is not always necessary, although desirable, to change the filter with every oil change.)

Replace the filter by dipping your finger into fresh oil and coating the rubber gasket then simply screw it on and tighten it 3/4 turn beyond hand-tight using the filter wrench. Replace the drain plug and pour in the amount and type of oil specified in your owner's manual. Run engine a few minutes and check for leaks at the filter.

Where is the engine oil filter location in my 1998 pontiac sunfire?


if you have the 2.2 ecotech engine

the filter is directly in front of where you add oil, you will need a 24 or 32 mm socket with an extension to reach the black top enclosure.

they changed the size of the socket needed and i cant remember what year they changed it try the 24 first.
