: Oil filter Help!!

11-07-08, 02:55 PM
I have recently purchased a 2000 Catera and after doing the first oil change I noticed my oil light was on. It seems to have a small leak. I will replace it again tomorrow with a new o-ring but was wondering if there is some way I can convert this to a spin on filter? The oil filter cap came off fairly easy-The whole canister is not supposed to be removed is it? I can only assume the o-ring is pinched-there is just a tiny leak but my oil pressure gauge is on. Is there some secret to installing these? Thanks for the help!! So far I like this car! Am I supposed to change the timing chain at some interval? I just turned over 70000 miles.
