Best Answer

Many older cars used an oil filter element or cartridge which was placed INSIDE the oil filter housing or canister. Usuallly the canister had one long bolt through its center to hold it onto the engine. It was difficult to change without making a mess of oneself and the garage floor. The instant the long bolt was removed, the oil started leaking. Today's "spin on" filters are a vast improvement. Kits are available to change to the newer system for several old cars.

Raise hood. Using your hands, remove the plastic engine cover. Look to the side of the engine for a canister that hangs down. This is the filter.

The oil filter is a cartridge type filter which is accessed from above the engine, not the bottom as is normal with US cars. There is a black plastic cap about 3" in diameter on the drivers side of the engine, just behind the radiator hose. Unscrew the oid drain plug and drain oil from below. Then from the top side you can unscrew the oil filter cap, pull out the old cartridge, and drop in a new cartridge filter element.

Where do you install an oil filter on a 1960 Rambler six cylinder if it is missing?

Are you talking about a cartridge type filter? If so, you install it in the filter cartridge housing, normally located under the hood. Purchase the filter and you will then see what type it has. Of course a screw on filter is probably not what you have as the engine would dump all the oil, if the filter were missing. I must assume it has a cartridge filter. No assuming here, a PB50 fram spin-on oil filter that is between the battery and the air cleaner, under the hood. Upside down and if it wasn't there, you'd know it.

How do you change the oil filter on a 1997 BMW Z3?

Most European cars use a cartridge type oil filter. It's on the top of the engine, usually near the power steering reservoir. Use the proper oil filter cap wrench to remove the cap and filter assembly. Replace the cartridge and related seals, and install a little more than hand tight. You need to remove the filter before draining the oil pan, or the oil contained in the filter housing will not be changed.
