oil change right now help!

ok im changing the oil for the first time and im confused i know its supposed to be easy but ok help me out , the directions i got below, questions are in bold, thanks!


This how-to is written simply for reference only. Perform these steps at your own risk and use common sense. The author will not be responsible for any ill-effects (if any) if you make a mistake somewhere during the process.


Tools Needed:

1) 17mm socket or closed-ended wrench

2) oil filter wrench

3) jack and jack stands

4) oil catch-pan

5) shop rags


Steps:

1) Carefully jack up your vehicle on the jack-up point just behind the passenger-side front wheel, under the passenger-side door.

ok done

2) Secure the vehicle on jack-stands, never hold up the vehicle on the hydraulic jack alone.

ok done

3) Remove the oil-filler cap and the engine oil dipstick.

so the car doesnt have to be on right now?? the manual says:

Quote:
ENGINE OIL REPLACEMENT
M1121001000803
1.Start the engine and allow it to warm up until the temperature of the coolant reaches 80 − 90C (176 − 194F).
WARNING
Use care as oil could be hot.
2.Remove the engine oil filler cap.
3.Remove the drain plug to drain oil.
4) Turn the oil drain plug counter-clockwise using the 17mm wrench.

so turn it just enough so oil comes out, dont remove it all the way??

5) Turn the oil filter counter-clockwise using the oil filter wrench.


6) Let the oil drain thoroughly before reinstalling the oil drain plug and a new oil filter.

7) If you are replacing the oil filter (as recommended), you will need approx. 4.5 quarts of oil. The recommended oil viscosity is 5W-20. If you are not replacing the oil filter, you will need approx 4 quarts.


8) Reinstall the oil filler cap and dipstick.

9) Run the engine for about 5 minutes. Then shut it off and wait for a few minutes before checking the oil level on the dipstick. The oil should be somewhere in between the 2 dots on the dipstick. Also, check the oil filter and drain plug for leaks.

4) remove the drain plug all the wait out! wait till all of oil is drained.

7) it's over 4qts make sure you have 5qts

9)after pouring oil in car you don't have to run it for 5 mins, 30 sec is fine, shut it off and check level add if needed

hope that helped

In a gt, put 5 quarts in and don't even bother checking

Your car shouldn't be on, but the oil comes out much easier (and more of it) if it's been warmed up recently. Take the bolt all the way out, and make sure you clean the boss (the area around where you removed the oil filter) before you put the new one on. Stick your finger in the new oil and coat the gasket on your new oil filter before putting it on... only has to be hand tightened, no more.

Our cars hold 4.5qts of oil for an exact fill. Put in 4, turn it on and let it run for a minute, then turn it off and check before adding the last half a quart. Torque on the oil pan bolt is 30ft lbs. Have fun!

Both engines hold 4.5 qts, and always check... it's not worth over filling it and causing damage.

you get what you need man?

unplug/unscrew the plug/bolt
drain into pan
remove oil filter if you want to do this
fill up new oil filter w/ new oil - screw back on
replace the oil pan bolt/screw - use lock-tight (*optional)
fill up w/ oil - let run - turn off - check again until just right.
easy as it gets, my son.

this was the number filter in the book at autozone for me to get

, so i bought the oil filter wrench " B" and i tested it on the mobil one filter, and it fits perfect, but then i get home and the fucking oil filter "B" wrench cap doesnt fit on the stock filter?

what size?? damn it



i drained the oil so far and i put the screw back on it, hand tightened it, good enough?

man - this is a situation where the torque wrench is invaluable. you have a mechanical garentee that it's torqued/tightened just right. If you don't have a torque wrench - get one. You won't regret it. will be the best $30 - $40 you spend on the car - especially if you intend to keep modding.

If you can't get your old filter off by hand, and the oil filter wrench you have isn't working, AND you can't go get one that does...

Punch a screwdriver through the filter and use it like a handle.

Didn't trust my screwdriver method? It works, you're just punching through aluminum and if it was the stocker probably some cardboard crap on the inside. They're not meant for reuse so you can pretty much do whatever you want to it on the way off.

No big loss, other than to your pocketbook. Swapping the oil out again that quick will actually help "rinse" everything inside and get you a few miles of extremely pristine slippery stuff.

ah if you have the time, I'd just drop by autozone/pep/oreilly/walmart/kmart/target/convenience-store/back-alley/bobs-place/napa and get an oil filter wrench that'll grip any size of filter. They sell strap ones in various sizes and "claw" grip style ones, sometimes as cheap as $2. You don't need anything fancy, you'll only be using it once every 3000 miles, and after installing your own, probably not even then.

WOW DUDE!!!! Mine was hard to get off and I ended up using channel locks to grab it and get it off. I did dent the hell out of it. I have no clue what to suggest to you at this point because you don't have much to grip onto. Only thing I could think for you to do know is to get a screwdriver in one of the little hole on the top of the filter and at an angle and maybe tap it with a hammer or something. Are you sure you were turning it in the right direction????

The holes are part of the filter. Look at the new filter and you can see that the big hole is threaded and that screws onto the car. The gasket seals it onto the car.

I've never seen an oil filter look like that before, I'm not going to lie.

Two things, Mike's on the right track, use a flat head to brace against the edge of one of those holes and tap it with a hammer until it comes loose. The other is you could get two pairs of needle nose pliers and put a pair in either side and torque it out. Those holes are the filter so you can hurt them. Try not to hurt the part in the center.

Sorry you're having trouble with this, the next time will be much easier, I guarantee it!

Let us know how it goes. Don't be worried to do it again believe me it won't be as tight. I only tighten mine as tight as I can by hand. I've been doing it that way for years and have never had one fall off or leak.

holy jumbo !!!
i never thought a girl could rip out an oil filter like that

just giving you a hard time, but damn, first time i changed mine it came off by hand, not like Superman-hand-power, just average joe twist...
and since then like someone said, i only tighten it back by hand...

get a screwdriver or something in one of these holes and hammer away...

props to you for trying girl, not everyone would do it ! it's just like **** ***, first time is always rough, but after that it's easy-peezy...

as i said,they put those bitches on tight.i would try a flat head screw driver, stick it on the edge of one of the filter holes and try tapping it with a small hammer being very careful counter clockwise.thats some crazy shit,yours must have been on extre tight from the factory.

EDIT; looks like this advice has allready been given.if it was me and this last ditch effort didnt work,then i would have to tap me a couple of bolts in two of those holes,one on each side, making sure the bolts dont go far at all in the filter holes.then use a tool to slide between the two bolts and turn.kinda like a breaker bar

fill up w/ oil - let run - turn off - check again until just right.
easy as it gets, my son.
Yea, what he said
