Step three: Remove the engine cover and place it somewhere safe.
Step Four: Loosen oil filter housing with 32mm socket
Tip: Loosen filter cap so that it is ready to pull off, leave it on for the time being. (Allows the filter to drain excess fluid so that when you do remove the housing and filter, minimal spillage occurs.)
Step Five: Underneath the car, rotate the oil drain bolt cover clockwise with two fingers to remove the plastic cover.
Step Six: Using the 17mm socket, loosen the drain bolt, afterward use hands to remove the drain bolt slowly.
WARNING: the fluid exiting the drain bolt will be HOT! Exercise caution!
- Tip 1: Angle the drain bolt in a direction so that the oil flows in a predictable path.
- Tip 2: If using a drain container, the oil may bounce off the container, be prepared for spillage or use a “No splatter pad” in a supplement of a drain device.
Step Seven: Observe a minimum of 15 minutes for the oil to drain completely. While waiting, remove the oil filter housing.
Step Eight: Remove old oil filter and remove oil filter O-Ring off of the plastic housing with a pick tool.
Step Nine: Replace Oil filter & O-Ring with one supplied with oil filter kit, Lubricate the O-ring’s(Inside new filter & Housing) with fresh motor oil, Torque Filter housing to 25 Nm (18 ft-lb)
Step Ten: After observing the 15 minute drain time, replace the crush washer on drain bolt and torque the drain bolt to 25 Nm (18 ft-lb) and replace the drain bolt cover by placing it back on the undershield and rotating clockwise.
Step eleven: Lower vehicle back down to the floor, Remove oil filler cap and fill to spec: 6.5 Liters (6.9 Us quarts) replace oil cap, and replace the engine cover.
