I did my first oil change, the oil filter was a pain in the butt to get loose, went to pepboy, oreiley, autozone and non of they have the right tool. Hyundai dealership where i bought the car didn't sell a tool to remove filter. I ended up using a pipe wrench crush the filter and unscrew it.

Anyone eslse has trouble removing the filter, what tool did you use?

When did u replace your oil? I just bought my Sonata and the sales woman emphasised twice that I need to change it every 3 months or 3,000 miles (the old fashioned standard), but I know most modern cars it is less frequent. I looked through the manual and it says the change the oil every 7,500 miles/12 months under normal use and 3,750miles/6 months under severe use....

i haven't done an oil change to my sonata yet but one thing that always works for me is a screwdriver. punch it right through the sides and it gives a nice handle.

3750 mile for conventional oil and 7500 for group 3 synthetic oil with mobile 1 or wix filter, thats the rule i follow. Don't get fram filter they will fail when you least expect it.

I don't want to make a mess by poking a hole with screwdriver, oil slick on the drive way means an hour cleaning with castrol concrete cleaner.

IF you put it on correctly you wont need a tool ever again. Getting the first one off from the factory tends to be a chore. I used a strap wrench to get mine off.

And yeah, the Hyundai Warranty booklet says 7500/12 months for normal and 3750/6 months for severe. So determine what section you are in and dont listen to what that lady said she is beyond wrong and raiding your pocketbook.

Well, I can't be sure but on my 2008 and 2009 engines I finally got one of the multi-fit filter removal tools that came from Wal-Mart if I recollect correctly. I don't know if this engine is significantly different from the older engine but I found that if I went to the NAPA store and bought the filter and oil and an oil filter wrench that fit over the filter it was an in and out operation.

I've changed many an oil filter in my life and the worst was on my '91 Ranger V6 where it was nearly impossible to get any kind of wrench on it. I resorted to the screwdriver through the filter to finally get it loose but that was a very messy job and as anyone knows getting oil over your hands makes it doubly difficult be cause you can't grip the filter.

I would consider taking off the shroud on the bottom of the engine to gain access. It will take a little longer and then you can use one of the univeral filter removal "strap" arrangements that simply wraps around the filter bottom and you put an extension on it to tighten it up and it will come off. These type of filter strap removal tools should be available at most any auto parts store.

I have a question though. How the heck does the Hyundia oil change guy get the filter off? That sounds screwey to me.

Note: The dimensions of the Hyundai filter and the aftermarket filters like the Wix filters at NAPA are different. That's why I had to use the multi-fit arrangement that has about six filter sizes to finally get one to get the stock filter off. That is a pain the rear end. The aftermarket filter is much easier to remove. Otherwise let the Hyundai dealer change the oil and filter like I do on Wednesday when the special price of $19.95 is in effect. That's the easiest of all remedies.

No kidding, they must used a torque wrench to install the filter.

the initial filter change was a pain because it was so tight I had to remove the plastic cover to get any kinda leverage on it. But once it was removed the rest will be easy. dont put it on so tight and a standard socket style filter wrench will be able to remove it easily without removing the plastic cover. I bought the Mobil1 filter and my old filter wrench fits it perfectly. It's a little fatter than the stock filter. should be cake from here on out.

After my engine is broken in I intend to install a Canton non-bypass racing filter. These are canister style filters that take a 22mm wrench or thereabout on the end cap, and the internal element comes out for the change.

Speaking of which, anybody know what the thread size is on the stock filter?


Canton "Billet" filter canister... the end cap at the bottom ("top" in this picture) unscrews as described above:


these filter down to 8 microns (typical oil filters do 10-20microns and have bypass valves that allow for ZERO filtering under high-pressure situations such as cold start up, etc.) These have no bypass valves; they filter all the oil all the time, and filter it very well.
