How do you change oil filter


The oil filter is a can shaped object that is screwed into the side of the engine.
You need an oil filter removal tool that wraps a strap around the oil filter so you can unscrew the oil filter in an anti-clockwise direction. When the oil filter is loosened you will get some oil spillage.
When you replace the oil filter, apply a little fresh oil on the rubber o-ring seal before you screw the oil filter back onto the engine. Do not over tighten the oil filter as you can damage the o-ring seal and cause the oil to leak out of the engine when the engine is running.
After installing the new oil filter I suggest you start the engine and let it run until the engine warms up, then check the oil filter to see if there is any oil leaks from the oil filter (between the engine and the oil filter). If it leaks and you have not tighened the oil filter enough then screw the filter a little tighter/

Where is the oil sending unit located


Hello equnn3261: My name is Roger and I will help you. You can locate the oil pressure sensor just to the right of the oil filter. The sensor screws into the oil filter housing just above the flange that the filter tightens against. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya.

Location of oil filter


The 2007 Tundra 5.7l engine doesn't have a spin on filter - it uses a replaceable paper cartridge within a permanent housing. Located under the skid plate on the front-left portion of the engine, the oil filter unit has two coolant hoses, a black plastic screw-in housing, and a large, metal, round screw with a 1/2" square fitting in the middle of it. The cartridge-type oil filter is in the housing.

If equipped with a skid plate, access is accomplished by removing the 5 skid plate bolts, allowing the plate to swing down on integrated hangars (with the front plastic bumper skirt still attached). To completely remove the skid plate, three small screws holding it to the front plastic bumper skirt must also be removed.

Toyotafilter kits contain a new filter cartridge, a plastic drain plug, and two O-rings. The drain plug is used to drain residual oil from the filter unit prior to removing the plastic screw-in housing. After removing the large, metal, round screw with a 1/2" square fitting in the middle of it, the plug simply snaps into the bottom of the plastic housing. The smaller of the two new O-rings replaces the existing O-ring on the screw.

Once drained, the plastic screw-in filter housing is removed using a filter wrench (Toyota special service tool). The larger of the two new O-rings replaces the existing O-ring on the screw-in housing. VERY CLOSE ATTENTION must be paid in placing the new O-ring - failure to properly seat the new O-ring could result in a massive oil leak! The filter itself is currently only available from Toyota.

How to oil change 2005 Mercedes Benz E320 Cdi


Mercedes makes it easy! Get a 10 quart oil pump and draw the oil out of the dipstick tube. The oil filter is on top so can be removed with a filter wrench and easily replaced. No need to jack the car up or crawel under. No fuss no mess and a 10 minute oil change!!!

Oil is leaking from where the oil filter screws in. Is that the oil pump? Only leaks when car is running, kind of pours out! I replaced the oil pan gasket and its leaking from that thing that te oil filter...


Did you check the old oil filter if the Oring is present when you remove it? If the not, the old Oring is still there, so, you have two Oring there, that's why is leaking. Remove the new oil filter and remove the other one O ring, the old one and then install it back, and don't forget to wet with oil the Oring before you install it back. ok

Where is oild filter on 2000 GMC Jimmy


After you have the hood open, locate your oil cap and remove it to release any pressure in the system. For the next part you will need a flat head screw driver, a socket wrench and set of sockets, and an oil pan or something to store the used oil in.

Begin by sliding the oil pan underneath the truck and back. Because your GMC Jimmy has higher suspension there should be no need to lift the suv up on jack stands. Lay on your back and slide underneath until you are about midway underneath. Locate the oil pan, and the oil pan plug. The plug will look like a small bolt head. Position the oil pan underneath the plug. Next, taking your socket wrench and, using the appropriately sized socket, loosen the oil plug and remove it. At this point you may get a little dirty because the old, used oil will come out.

After the old oil has finished draining put the plug back in, but only tighten it down hand tight. Next move forward under the vehicle until you are just below the front bumper. There will be a small black door at a horizontal angle with a screw holding it in place. Taking your flat head screw driver twist it until the door swings open.

Now you have access to the old oil filter. To remove the oil filter reach in and twist it counter clock wise. If the oil filter will not move with your hand try using a piece of light grit sandpaper for extra grip. You may need to purchase an oil filter wrench.

After removing the old oil filter take the new filter from its box, ensure that the black rubber gasket is in place at the end of it and rub a small amount of the old oil around the gasket. This helps to ensure that the new gasket will seal to the car. After tightening down the oil filter close the door.

Hop helps.
