Re: Changing the SRT 6.4 oil filter

Changed mine today. I used the oil filter end cap wrench. Tap it on the end of the filter then uses a 3/8th inch ratchet to loosen. Take the end cap wrench off before loosening enough to cause it to drip. Then finish by hand with a disposable glove on.

As info

Re: Changing the SRT 6.4 oil filter

Yes, it's very easy and accessible from under the car, it even has a built in drain ramp so the oil doesn't run all over the underside of the car, very slick feature..... you may need an oil filter wrench, I like the kind that slip over the domed end portion of the filter, some are made to only fit specific filters, so you have to known what filters you plan on using them on, others come with adapters to fit many different filters......overall one of the easiest and cleanest oil changes I have ever done....I paid for factory oil changes when I bought my SRT, but it is so easy that I almost rather do it my self..... I also added one of those quick, lever action drain plugs, now I don't even have to remove the oil pan drain plug.......just flick the lever over, attach the hose adapter and the oil drains right into what ever I want it to, with no spills or mess

Re: Changing the SRT 6.4 oil filter

Based on the broken knuckles I've gotten changing the factory filter on every Jeep I've ever owned, I'm pretty sure they have a gorilla installing them. There's no way that's "hand tight". The SRT was the toughest one yet. My god that was one tight oil filter.

Cleanest is the Pentastar V6. You remove a filter housing from the top of the engine and change the element. There's no oil in the housing when you remove it.

Re: Changing the SRT 6.4 oil filter

I use a K&N oil filter, mainly because I like their products but an added benefit is the nut on the end to remove the filter.

I'm just saying that there's no point in discussing an oil change on the Pentastar this is about the SRT

It's a casual conversation. I have both so I commented on what I believe is a interesting design in that regard.

But I've known lots of little boys over the years that thought being the hall monitor made them big and powerful so I understand why you couldn't resist the urge to make a nasty comment.
