No Oil Change DIY??

Hey guys,
I can't seem to find any DIYs for changing the oil.
Yes, I'm sure it's a simple process and doesn't really require it.
I've been wrenching on my cars for over 16 years so I'm sure this car will be no different than most.

I was hoping to find info on tools needed such as oil filter wrench size, drain bolt socket size, also part numbers for materials needed, etc.

I've read about a dozen threads discussing Mobile1 vs PUP and the difference in the 04884899AB vs 5038041AA.
But I haven't seen anyone mention a drain plug crush washer??
Most oil filters I've bought for past vehicles come with these in the box.

Sorry if this have been covered already.



Thanks
Drew

If you've been wrenching all these years, crawl under & have a look! Everything needed to buy can be found in your manual! Good luck!

Re: No Oil Change DIY??

Oh yea?
Hmmm....read the manual prior to posting this. Surprisingly, it didn't have much info regarding the procedure. Only to use 0w-40 and mopar approved products.

Re: No Oil Change DIY??

If you are looking for more info than the owners manual provides you probably want to get the service manual if you are a DIY it is good to have for various things. Users guide is fairly worthless, the owners manual is better and gives you some more info but is not really meant to be an extensive DIY guide. The service manual is probably what you are looking for. I wouldn't buy it for something simple like an oil change but it has good info in it for various procedures and more technical info if you plan to DIY the vehicle long term.

Users Guide - abbreviated information they stuff in the glove box, fairly worthless. 200-300 pages
Owners Manual - More extended information for download or free by request from jeep. not usually in the glove box.
Service Manual - Technical information and procedures on CD for purchase only and around $100.

I believe you would be better served driving to Mr. Lube & have them do it!! Nothing to think about . . .

No Oil Change DIY??

Not sure if you're trying to be funny or not ma'am.

Maybe I'm not like most here, but I prefer to do all my own work. To this and all my cars.

Main point of my thread was to get vehicle specific information, such as specific tools needed and any unusual notes.



Heres a shot from the last time I changed the spark plugs on my 997TT.

the 6.4 has a built-into the drain bolt rubber flatish "o" ring thingy and should be reusable for a season or two, you'll know if it's time if it leaks ....however, I am a fan of the Fumoto Quik Valve (106S)...so much easier but to each his own...

I see you have a very fun kraut kar ...had 3 myself, loved the 540 6spd the most but always wanted a 911, esp a Turbo...I have never seen a US car oil filter come with a drain bolt fiber washer/o-ring in the box outside of the obvious oil filter seal ring...

I would check your dipstick to make sure you have the correct "AB" one...this TSB is for MY15 but MY14 folk have reported having the wrong "AA" dipstick...http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_0901115.pdf

don't crank too hard on drain bolt, 25ftlbs will do...have you seen this site? loaded with info:

Re: No Oil Change DIY??

After I changed it once by crawling under and eyeballing everything. I feel completely confident I'll only need lay on my back in front of the nose and just reach under to do it all now. It'll be the easiest oil change ever, you'll see once you've done it. So basic a kid could do it simply. Good luck
