What a load of rubbish! I change my own oil and perform my own maintenance.
No Jethro dealer tech is gonna touch my Ram unless it's a recall visit.

I only allowed the dealer to change my oil on the 1st change as I figured the factory tightened filter would be a b_ to remove. Plus, it was only $9.95, and they flashed the computer with a firmware update. They did good work, no drips or over/under tightened filter.

My only complaint was I was the third guy in line on a Saturday morning, and it still took them 3 hours to finish my truck.

Amen Brother!

The tech was an idiot who didn't want to take the time to provide proper customer service, and didn't want to admit that someone where he works did not know how to properly install an oil filter.

You should probably be happy he remembered to even put the oil filter on. That is why I try and do all work myself.

You should probably be happy he remembered the oil filter at all. That is why I try and do all work myself.

Oddly enough, I did my first oil change and the filter was coated in oil, couldn't figure out why. The filter was on way too tight, maybe something to do with that. See what happens with the non-mopar I used.

i had a free oil change and took advantage of it and sure enough they did not tighten the oil filter. i did my own oil change last week and will continue to do so from here on. it's really not that hard
