2014 Grand Cherokee 3.6L V6 Oil Change
 
Attempted to change the oil on my new Jeep. Draining the 6 Quarts of oil was no problem. I unscrewed the oil filter housing cap using a 24mm socket. I think a 15/16 socket might be the correct size.

Does anyone know the exact socket size for the oil filter housing cap?

Auto Parts guy told me the 2013 Oil Filter would fit my 2014 Jeep. That is not the case. So after having the oil drained and the old filter out I was stuck with having to reinstall the old filter. I used the o-ring from the new filter because I didnít want to take any chances with it leaking. That was an expensive o-ring.

So I have new oil and an old filter. Iíll get the new oil filter from the dealer this week. Should I just replace the oil filter now or should I also drain the oil again? Seems like the oil filter could easily be replaced without having to drain the oil.

nope just undo the fill cap then undo the filter housing you should then be able to change the filter.

I was researching diesel filters recently but came across this Service Bulletin on the gasser oil filter change for 2014:

Just so everyone knows the oil filter cap needs a 15/16" socket. Once I got the correct filter cartridge form the dealer I changed it out with no problems.

I will eventually be doing this on my 2014... Let me try to understand this the V8 engines have standard looking filters, but the V6 has a top filter that looks like a pool filter or something?

Where do you buy new filters from? Each oil company website I've gone to list the 5.7 and 6.4 engines but doesn't list parts for the V6 2014 model.

I'm assuming the new filter cap will come with a o-ring and new filter. New filter snaps into the oil cap and the old o-ring is removed and replaced with the new one.

no you use the same cap, and filter snaps into it. filter normally comes with an oring.

that's what I meant, the new filter snaps into the same cap every time, and you replace the old o-ring with the new o-ring, right?

Where are you guys purchasing the v6 oil filter from?

I just purchased the OEM one off Amazon. I'd like to know when some companies like K&N and Royal Purple will offer a drop in filter to replace the Mopar one.

Yeah that's what I wanted to know too. I can find the mopar filter from their site but hadn't seen others that are from other companies to purchase. I guess give it some time. I'm not sure is it a new design concept for engines in general or just new to jeep?
