SOURCE: dodge nitro fuel cap
You stated "key in and key out", I'm assuming that your car has a locking gas cap. If that's the case, turn the key to the right (clockwise), once the key stops, hold it in the far right position with your right hand, then grab the gas cap with your left hand and turn it clockwise. That should do it. Hope this helps. If I was able to FixYa, please rate my answer. Thanks.

If this is a 2008 it should have a decal with the routing on the radiator support across the front of the engine when you open the hood.

First, I have to say that being retired profesionnally of the mecanic I have not change it by myself. However, it seems that the 4.0 L is relatively easy to replace but the 3.7 L one is located near/between front axle/differential, the harmonic balancer and masked by a bunch of hoses.
Several users reported that the factory one is hard to remove being too much tighted in place.
These things being said, depending on your mecanic experience I'm sure it 'feasible' taking maybe 45 minutes rather then 2 minutes.
My only warning will be to resist to the idea to 'break it ' with a scewdriver with the idea to pry it if it's tight in place. It's really amateur and you could really be in trouble if it doesn't work. A strap wrench is very ofter the most appropriate tool.
Assuming positively you will reach this point, make sure the previous oil filet gasket didn't stay in place and second, put some oil onto the new filter rubber gasket to make the next removal easyer. Tight strongly by hands.
Hope it will help
Sorry for my english

Have it checked for trouble codes sounds like it could be an injector problem or something as serious as a loose rocker,maybe try a crank&cam shaft position sensors

You can access the oil filter easily from underneath next to the front, driver-side wheel at the front of the engine. There is clear access to the filter there.
