Hi Buckeye, please can you tell me what's the dimension of end cap wrench you bought to remove your wk2 oil filter?. Sorry for the question, but i live outside USA where's difficult to find one, so I'm planning to buy it on ebay (or maybe you can tell me where to find it) to do my first oil change on my WK2 limited 5.7 hemi.
For reference my oil filter Mopar reference number is MO-089
It has 90 milimeters aprox of diameter
Thanks in advance

The size is 93x15 (93mm - 15 flutes). Just search for "93mm x 15 flutes".

Example:

Lisle 54780 93mm Cap Wrench : Amazon.com : Automotive

Re: Question for Hemi guys regarding oil change.

Hey, if anyone can offer some help on this, I would greatly appreciate it...
I want to change my oil myself, and was looking underneath the front of the vehicle but can't seem to find the drain plug (2013 Grand Cherokee, 5.7L).
Is it underneath the plastic guard? Any help, particularly a photo or link to a write up, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Just get under there more and look through the hole in the black plastic. In the photo, the oil filter is to the right and the drain plug to the left.

Re: Question for Hemi guys regarding oil change.

Just thought that I would add that I've switched to K&N oil filters since you can use a socket wrench to tighten/loosen it. Makes it worlds easier.
