I purchased a used 2013 SE 1.6L from Carmax 3 months ago with 9K on it. They said the previous owner told them that the oil had been changed at 7K so they did not change it. It now has 12K on it so I thought it would be a good time to change it.
Mike134 was right. After only 1 oil change the bottom shield was attached with only 6 torx head screws, and most of those were only hand tight. The 3 metric socket screws were missing. What do the metric socket screws look like and in which holes on the shield do they go in? Do they have fine or coarse threads? Suggestions on where to purchase them. I have looked in Advance Auto for the torx head screws but no exact matches.
There was a CarQuest filter on it, so I'm assuming the previous owner had the oil changed at CarQuest. I was able to get it off with a rubber glove, but I needed a breaker bar to get the oil pan drain plug off.
Taking the side mounted filter off is messy. There is quite a bit of oil left in the filter. Replaced the old filter with a Purolator L10241. A good wrench for the Puolator filter is the 76mm metal cap style wrench from Advance Auto. It's narrow and fits snug.
