A common problem when replacing an oil filter is that the o-ring from the old filter stuck to the block during removal and when the new filter is put on you have two o-rings stacked on top of each other. This will cause a leak.
The oil filter on the 2007 Chevy Impala is located on the side of the oil pan. The engine oil inside the oil pan needs to be completely drained from the oil pan before removing the oil filter from the oil pump. The oil filter is removed and installed by screwing it into the bottom of the oil pump.
Oil filter on Chevrolet Impala is located under the car like in picture. Remove the old oil filter by unscrewing and. Be careful, the old oil filter contains used oil. Add oil in the new filter and lubricate the O-ring an after that screw the oil filter back.
Car manufacturers often suggest changing oil filters every other time you have your oil changed. Most parts and oil manufacturers, however, say to replace oil filters with every oil change, which should occur every 3,000 miles or three months (whichever comes first).
Can I Change My Engine Oil Without Changing The Filter? Yes, you can change your oil without changing your oil filter just know that old oil filter won’t be able to effectively remove contaminants from your engine oil.
There is no way to prime it (as the oil would just run back down into the engine anyway). The reason you prime it is to try and minimize the amount of time the engine is ran without oil. The shorter the better (obviously). Always make sure you put new oil on any seals which are on the filter as well.
Neither the owner’s manual nor the factory service manual says anything about priming the filter after an oil change, but conventional wisdom (and answers to questions like this and this) suggest it’s a good idea to fill up the new oil filter with fresh oil if you can manage it.
