When I got the truck home I crawled under it to see if changing my own oil is going to be easy.
Looks like the drain plug has no interference with dumping the oil. The filter looks pretty easy also (straight up and enough room to get at it).
Anybody have any problems changing the filter without dumping oil all over the truck and yourself? I've read somewhere to loosen it up, just slip a clear plastic bag over it and unscrew it till it drops in the bag. Anybody try this. Makes sense to me.
I have a long time before I need to change it. Only 700 miles on the truck so far. I'm going to change it at 3000 miles, then every 5000 miles using a Wix filter and Mobil 1 Synthetic. I've been doing that for years in all my new vehicles.
I go by the miles not what the computer thinks I should do.
Thanks for any info on what I should watch out for to make it nice and easy changing the filter.
