Unscrew the old filter, lube the rubber O ring seal of the new one with engine oil and install, tighten 3/4 of a turn from when it contacts sealing surface of engine.

    Apparently mr. emissionwiz has never done a oil change on the car in question. Don't comment if you never have done this car. The answer is a generic answer for any ol' car. try changing oil on this car and see if you still call yourself a guru.

    I don't see where you have provided the procedure, come, don't run others down to make you look good, just give the info on the filter change if you have it.

2008 dodge nitro change oil light how to turn off had oil changed did not go out

Directions are in the book, but you would put the key in and turn it all the way, just don't start engine. Pump gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times slowly, but it has to be with 10 seconds. Turn key off and when you start again, oil changed chime and warning should not be on. If it is, try again.
