How to change oil filter in 1997 lexus es 300

I can get the wrench on the filter but I don't have room to turn the wrench. The handle is hitting the exhaust manifold, engine block, radiator hose or electric fan shroud. I'm trying from the top facing the filter. I don't see where there is room for my hand or wrench coming in from underneath. It almost looks like you have to loosen and move the exhaust manifold but that can't be right. I'm using a standard filter wrench purchased from auto zone. Any help would be very much appreciated....Barry

No you can get to them by using an extension on your rachet with a rotating socket. Play around with the extension and rotating sockets to see which works best.

How to change rear spark plugs on a 1997 ES 300 Lexus


you should be able to see wires coming from the body to the distributor you need to pull one of those wires out of the body or valve cover. JUST ONE you don't want to mix them up. then with a spark plug removal socket you should be able to run the socket down that whole until you feel it grab on the spark plug don't wrench really hard on it. if it has been a while since they've been changed then they may break with too much force. then after it is out put the anti seizing grease on the new one and install it repeat the process with the other spark plugs.franktilt_2.gif
