Not sure why the question is even being asked, but you can change the oil yourself in about 15 minutes; simply jack the front end, put a pan under the oil drain plug, open the plug, let it drain, put the plug back in, and add new oil.

Take it to any outlet that changes oil (Wal-Mart, for example, charges about $18, some places charge as little as $15) and they'll include a new filter because otherwise you're running new oil through an old filter, which defeats the idea of the oil change. You can ask them not to put on a new filter, but you'll still pay the base price.

My question is, why would you not want a new filter if you're changing oil.

Let me know if this answers your question.

Why is the old oil filter empty when I changed the oil?

I have the 4 litre (UK) version of the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Your oil filter is 'horizontal'?
It's simply because the oil filter isn't 'upright' and doesn't hold oil - think of a coffee mug: A coffee mug standing upright can hold more coffee than a mug lying on its side.

When you start the engine the oil pump shoves oil into the filter. When switched off, the majority of oil finds its way back to the sump because of gravity. Remember that it's an oil filter which receives oil at pressure. It's not an oil container/reservoir. You have nothing to worry about.

I have a 93 grand Jeep Cherokee Laradeo ,to change the oil pan seal , and or the oil filter housing to change the O rings , or the timing cover seal or the rear seal , dose one need too lift up or pull...

The oil filter housing and the timing cover can all be worked on with engine in car.
For the rear engine seal (rear main seal), the transfer case and transmission will have to be removed to access the seal.
Most of the time, the oil pan can be removed without raising the engine. Check your clearance under there for anything obstructing removal. (I loaned out my Jeep manual and never got it back!) On some cars, engine needs to be raised about 4 inches for pan to clear the oil pickup tube. Don't know about your Jeep.

On a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4 with a 4.7 H.O. engine do you have to remove the front skid plate to access the oil filter for changing? Thanks in advance.

Not as far as i know. But if u can't get it from top or bottom the skid plate is an easy removal. Hope this helps.

I am trying to change the air filter on a 2004 jeep grand cherokee. Where is it located?

filter is inside the box at the end of the long 4" diameter black varigated hose that runs from the throttle body on the engine to the front of the car. Usually there either clips or screws around the perimeter to remove the top portion to get at the filter, On some it's easier if you remove the hoses from it first.
