You only need a few. You need a wrench or socket that fits the oil pan drain plug. Car makers have used all sizes of drain plugs, don't know Saturn's, anywhere from 13 millimeter to 19 millimeter size wrench or socket. One of them will fit yours.
So one wrench (when you find the right one) and you will need a drain pan to catch the oil. Next you will need an oil filter wrench or tool. There are several types and sizes-when you buy the new oil filter you can get the filter remover that fits your filter . A parts person should be able to help you select the right one. Also buy a small funnel to pour new oil into the engine .And don't forget to have a few rags handy to clean up spills and wipe off areas. That's about all that is normally required.

I want to change oil filter. Where is it? and do i need special tools.


I would suggest with that question, you would be
better off continuing to have the oil changed,
where ever you have been doing it

You must know you would have to raise the
car up somehow & need at least an oil filter
tool or cup & several other tools

I just don't see it worth your while to get
involved.

Is it easy to change oil myself in my hyundai 2002 sonata


yes it very easy if you have all the tools and a small ramp you can drive the car up on. today my opinion its not worth changing your own oil anymore unless you enjoying get down dirty and greasy. us "mechanic" don't even change or own oil. most places now offer oil change for 19.95 to 29.95. take your car which will take 4.5 quarts of oil and it will cost you, 2.25 each would come to 10.00 bucks, filter 8.00 buck and now you have 19.00 bucks. Im assummed this will be your first oil change, you will need to by the oil filter removal tools, two small car ramp, oil pan and a big container to storage your used oil. you will have close to 100 buck on the tools. if you plan to change your oil regularly, than it would be good investment in the tools. even though oil change is 29.95 to me it worth paying some one 10 bucks to get underneath that car and have them do the oil change. hope that help some

Looking to change the oil on my V6 AWD 2004 SRX. Where is the drain plug and filter case located? What size wrenches are needed?


Locate the drain plug, size 13mm, drain the oil, replace drain plug. The oil filter is located by the dipstick. Replace filter put 5.6qtz of 5w-30 synthetic and you are good to go. and the oil filter is located to the right of the engine cover if your looking in at it. It looks like a small cast iron canister with a nut on top (its all molded together). unscrew the top of that and it is in there, the oil wrench come and can adjust to different size, I assume you never done an oil change and don't have any tools. go to any local auto parts store and tell them you need everything from oil,filter,removal tools, oil pan, funnel and they will give you everything you need ans some advice. when you put the filter back on, I would only do hand tighten. make sure you rub a bit of oil around the new rubber seal on your new filter using your figure. Buy the time you spend for all the tools what what need for oil change you will spend as much as having the pro do it, Oil change has been cheaper to change now day compair doing it your self. many places are offering 19.95 to 29.95 oil change, its worth all the hassle to let them do it. do the math, filter 6.00, 6qt of oil 27.00, tools 8.00, funnel 3.00, oil pan 12.00 right there is 56.00 buck plus you get to craw under the car and get dirty.
