Re: My first WK Oil Change

Get an oil filter remover with a wrench stub on it, it slips over the end of the filter and you can use a wrench to remove it, makes removing the oil filter much easier.

Re: My first WK Oil Change

I wonder what they changed because oil changes on my '08 are a breeze. Without having those two extra cylinders opens up enough space in the front and the oil filter is easily accessible. Plus, they have a plastic catch under the filter so it drains out of a spout right into my catch can. I applaud the engineers for that little thing!

I would like those two extra cylinders though...

Re: My first WK Oil Change

I'm the furthest thing from mechanically inclined and I've had absolutely no trouble doing oil changes on my '05 3.7. Everything is within easy reach and mine being lifted, I can slide right under the Jeep to drop the oil. Definitely not difficult. I think I had more trouble getting the airbox clips off to replace the filter than doing an oil change
