Generally you will need to raise the front of the vehicle with jack stands or ramps to gain access to the oil filter from underneath the engine & at most you need to remove a small piece of plastic to gain access. Most of the time you don't but in some instances, it makes the job easier and/or is required.

The filter was put on by hand if it was installed properly and no tools were used. If you have on a good glove & the engine is just warm ( I recommend warm for oil changes, never cold or hot), you can grab the filter on the end with one hand and with a counter-clockwise movement, unscrew the filter. You can of course use 2 hands is needed. If this doesn't work, you can use large "channel-lock" pliers or an oil filter wrench to help in removing it.

You may want to purchase the oil filter wrench when you buy your filter that way you'll know which size to buy. Sometimes they are really stuck. You'll need an oil drain pan under the filter once you loosen a few threads to let it drain in to, as it stops leaking, continue to unscrew it. You'll want to make sure that the rubber "o" ring is still on the mounting surface of the filter once removed & not stuck to the filter mount. That's how to remove one.

To reinstall, fill the filter with new oil as much as possible, depending on how it mounts, 1/2 way at most & wipe the rubber "o" ring and the threads in the center area with a light coat of oil, place on the mount where you removed the old one & then with a clockwise motion, twist the filter until the rubber seal just makes contact with the mounting surface. The filter should go on easily, be sure not to tilt the filter, it will start easily if you just keep it kind of level. On the filter it will tell you to tighten to either 1/2, or 3/4 turns after contact and you should follow those directions as some filters & the type of gasket will determine exactly what to do. Once you've finished your job & filled up the oil, you'll want to start the car & check for leaks. good luck

How much more oil do I add when changing the filter as well?


Basically depending if the car is completly drained of oil then you would need the almost extra 1ltr of oil, the engine would retain a certain amount of oil in the internal parts, i'e hydrolic tappets etc, thus they say up to 1 ltr,
basically fill 3.8ltrs run the engine for a min, then check dipstick and top up as ness.
