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.

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...

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

Hey ducks unlimited what valve are you talking about?

Re: My first WK Oil Change
 
he MAY be talking about a oil drain valve. how that helps with the OIL FILTER REMOVAL will be interesting to hear.

i can share Laverne that I have a Oil Drain Valve. her is a pic. fumoto oil drain valve with nipple.

^ i have the same drain as rob and it is great. my 4.7 is the easies vehicle i have ever owned for oil changes. i also change oil for 5 other people and this is the easiest vehicle of all of them.
