Default First DIY Oil Change

I changed my own oil for the first time and was in for a surprise when I located the oil filter. There are steel cross plates that evidently stiffen the chassis but one runs directly under the canister style oil filter. I 24mm socket will not fit and a box or open end wrench is too long. The filter holder top is made out of plastic so a vise-grip wrench, if would fit, will maul it. I lucked out because I had a 6 inch adjustable wrench that fit between everything and loosened the filter holder one flat at a time. After I cleaned up I went on line to find a Buick tool without luck. Hopefully some after market company will come out with a oil filter relocation kit to make the job a little easier.

Default Fist DYI Oil Chgean

Hi Dennis,
Thank you for your posting, it was very helpful. I also like to change my own oil. Let me know the the exact tools needed to open the oil drain plug. I do understand that you used a small adjustable wrench for the oil filter housing.

Let me know if this tool I found would work for the oil filter removal of the Casada oil filter housing?

Default Oil filter housing tool

It looks like it might work but is kind of expensive. You can buy a 6" adjustable wrench for much less.

I uesed a 15/16 combination wrench with no problem. My issue was removing cap and filter from Protruding stem on inside of the filter. After the cap and filter were removed the stem unscrew giving me enough to install filer and stem. The other issue how to tighten the stem? There must be aSpecial tool?
