It doesn't matter when you take the oil filter off, but I would take it off after i drained the oil
because it will get really messy. The plug is a 5/8 unless it's been changed and it is located on the back rear of the pan.
Thanks for the info. I have a couple more questions that I should have asked earlier.
would you recommend going under on the passenger side or driver side? right now the jack is under the passenger side, but i am going to have to move it a little in order to get to the filter.
why can't they put it in an easier reachable spot?!?
my x used to put in a little more than 4 quarts. I took my car to Jiffy Lube last time and they put in 4 quarts...saying anything over 4 was bad for my engine. who should i listen to?
thanks agian for your help
