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.

I have a 2009 Dodge Nitro 4X4. How do I remove the oil filter

My dodge Nitro is 08 4x4 ... not sure if it is the same, but i changed my oil filter in less than 10mins. it is beside the water tank, so open the bonnet, use a wrench or an L key, depending on your size, i assume must be as easy as mine, you will see a round and Black metal thing with a lid, that is the oil filter holder, with your key opened form the top, lift it, change it, put seals back, close it and done... some people buys the whole molar thing, i did it once but then i noticed that with just the filter will do it, no need to a holder...

Some people seal the lid, but i use the seal that comes with, and presto ! the job is done...

Read also this, might help ;) and good luck:

After changing my oil a few time`s I got tired of busting my knuckles and it taking for ever.I checked out the plastic drain underneath the oil filter and realized if it was not there,there would be a clear shot to the filter.Oil spills out the filter any way you try to get the filter out so the drain is useless any way.There are 2 bolts holding the drain on.

Figure 1,when putting this bolt back in put some rtv sealant on it.

Figure 2,this bolt only has to be loosened,slide it up and it pops through the hole above.....hmmmmmmmmm starting to look like it is made to come off quick....wonder why[img

Figure 3,clear shot to your filter

Figure 4,wrench has easy access

[img src="" border="0" alt="" >

Figure 5,Slide filter out.Its just barely slides out so take your time.Clean up spilt oil.....which you would have done any way except this took ten minutes instead of an hour and lot of cussing.Now reverse.
