Default Need Answer Quick!!!!!!!!!

When I bought my Ram with the 5.7 Hemi I crawled under to see how easy it is to change the oil and filter.

The drain plug is easy to get at, however WHERE THE HELL is The Oil filter.

I found it once and it didn't look to bad to get to, but for the life of me I cannot see it.

Default Thank You So Much.

I have an appointment to get it changed at the garage in about an hour so I am going to have them show me when they get it up on the hoist.

You fine folks said the first oil change should be by the garage as the oil filter could be a real pain to get off.

Like I said I have found it before but just didn't look in the right place this time.

Going to put in Mobil 1 with a Wix filter. I have a lot of faith in both products.

I have been using Mobile 1 synthetic & a WIX filter in my '09

when i was using regular oil, my EVIC lit up at close to 3,000 miles, telling me that it was time for service

now that i am using synthetic & the Wix filter, it lights up after 5,000 miles!!
I buy my Mobile 1 at WALMART for $25 for 5 quart jug, that is a lot cheaper than Pep Boys, they get $39.99 for the same jug
i buy 3 jugs at a time, i hate standing in line at any store
3 jugs = 2 changes plus

Anyone run M1 filters on the Hemi's? I ran them exclusively on my LS1s and liked them, plus we are a M1 "dealer" at my work so I can get them for pennies compared to normal stores.

Input?
