But a new cap, drill a hole on both sides, put a screw driver in the holes, and turn, hope it helps.

How do you remove a oil filter cap when its stuck?

First make sure you have the right tool to remove it and try again and make sure you turn counterclockwise (yeah.. it happens), then if it is a plastic oil filter cap you can try to heat it with a hair dryer , it should do the job. Plastic cap are not supposed to get stuck ; or it was dirty when put back, or the O ring broke and the cap got stuck, if you can't take it off at all have a quick run to the garage they'll remove it for you.

How to change the oil filter on a 05 cadillac cts

should be a 15/16" socket and ratchet, they can be tight so you might need a breaker bar or a pipe on the end to get some leverage.

1996 Jeep axle nut.Will a 1/2 electric impact wrench do it?I have broke a ratchet a drive bar with a three foot breaker and have soaked it for days with oil.This is not a reverse thread?

Before you try and get the nut off,go and get a spare replacement wheel stud.Don't use a ratchet because they are not strong enough.If you use an impact gun,tighten it first and then ondo it.Other than that,use an impact gun socket,a long handled breaker bar to suit the socket and get into it.Good luck

Had the oil changed at walmart they put a fram filter on it and the filter caved now the motor appears to be locked up if the oil pump went out would it appear that the motor was locked up my husband...

Yes it is bearings, rings, and part of the cylinder. If the oil pump went out the motor would lock up. The oil pump pumps oil throughout the motor. If the pump quits, it is just like running the engine without any oil at all. Without oil pressure then the motor would lock up because nothing in the engine would get any lubrication. Don't think it has anything to do with the oil and filter. Probably just a faulty oil pump. I have heard of Walmart not putting oil back in cars, and causing them to lock up. But if you had oil in the car, and it has metal shavings, then it is more than likely the oil pump just quit.

Cant get oil plug loose

FIRST: oil the plug (I know it sounds redundant)
1. breaker bar instead of ratchet wrench (buy one if you dont have one)
2. extension bar on breaker bar handle
If Getting desperate:
1. buy a new oil pan plug
2. use a damaged/rounded extraction socket on a breaker bar.
3. use an extension handle on the breaker bar handle
Be prepared to buy (and install)a new oil pan if the threads on the oil pan are ruined.

Installing a new oil pan is "easy" for experienced mechanics, but
replacing one can be involved for 1st-timers - and you'll usually want to buy (and install) a new oil pan gasket with the new oil pan.

That's everything from breaker bar (your minimum for stuck bolts) to replacing plug and pan (the worst-case scenario).

The oil filter is stuck? 99 Cherokee Sport 4x4 4.0L

I think the best way to get a stubborn filter off is to use an oil filter cap wrench. about 7-8 dollares. get a new oil filter from the shilf and fit it to the cap wrench to make sure it's the right one. you also need an extension bar and ratchet.

Oil in the air filter and housing

Normally due to a worn out engine, called "blow by."
But, see if you have an air tube coming from the valve cover that may have a PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve. This valve can plug up and cause a little bit of oil issue.
You can get a compression test done to see what condition the engine is in.

Cant get oil filter cap off my 325i 2001 car

There is no reason it would be a reverse thread. It should come off counter clockwise. I don't know anything about BMW though..
