Make sure that you have a new replacement filter cartridge ready. See if you can locate a product called PB Blaster (available at most better auto parts stores). Spray the PD Blaster around the base of the oil filter where it screws into to housing. Using a small headed hammer, or anything else such as a cold chisel that has some weight to it, gently tap around the housing using a lot of small taps rather than really striking it hard. This sets up a resonance in the metal of the housing that helps the PB Blaster wick into the area where the filter connects to the housing. Wait a few minutes (I usually do this twice) and then try unscrewing the filter again. Worst case scenario is drive a heavy screwdriver all the way through the filter and try using that to unscrew it. If you tear up the filter, use Vice-Grips to rip off the remaining ring of the filter from the housing. Clean the contact area of the housing and also the rubber seal of the new filter with a rag. Get some clean oil on your finger and apply it all around the rubber seal of the new filter. Screw the new filter onto the housing and tighten it as hard as you are able using your HANDS ONLY!! One quarter turn past full contact should be all that is necessary. Never use a filter wrench to tighten a new filter as it makes it too tight. Fill the crankcase with new oil and start the tractor. Let it warm up and check for any leaks around the filter. Tighten by hand only, or VERY easy use the filter wrench to give it a SMALL tightening tweak. If this has been helpful, please rate it accordingly. Thanks and good luck.

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 to change your oil

umm if you have to ask you probably shouldn't try it yourself. But If you have everything needed to change your oil and are willing and able then here's what you do....
First: you will need and oil pan, funnel, wrench that fits your oil plug, new oil filter and possibly something to help remove your old oil filter, car jack stands/jack to lift your car.
Second: lift your car up enough to get under it using the jack, place oil pan under car's oil plug.
Next: remove oil plug let oil drain.
Next: remove oil filter
Next: once drained put new filter on and reinstall the oil plug.
Next: fill with the correct amount or quarts of oil for your vehicle, should say in user's manual. lower the jack and should be good to go.

Cannot remove oil filter toyota pickup

As a last resort, yeah, a screwdriver. What about a strap-type remover? Large channel-lock pliers? Make sure not to over-tighten new filter. Good luck.

Location of oil filter

on the camry with the 2.4L inline 4, the oil filter is located just behind the plastic shield which extends below the front of the car... it will be on the passenger side, and is best removed with the variety of oil filter wrench which attaches to a ratchet (custom fit super graphite from shcuck's is the best I've found). I DO NOT recommend you use a strap type, or serrated jaw type wrench on this car, or you WILL have to remove the plastic shield, and waste a lot of time in the process.
On a camry equipped with the 3.0L V6, the oil filter is on the driver's side of the engine - mounted sideways. you SHOULD be able to get it through the driver's side wheel well. You WILL spill oil getting this one off - it's almost impossible not to, so be prepared for this. I'd personaly reccomend the type of wrench that attaches to a ratchet for this filter, but a strap or serated jaw type might work as well.
Hope this helps

You cannot change the filter unless you have access to a lift or pit. It is located on the back of the engine, recessed above the front axle. I took mine to a friends garage and even with the car raised, it still took a filter wrench on an extension bar to get to it. It is impossible to reach it if all you have is a jack or ramps in the driveway.
