The first time I did my oil change I took the filter cap off with a pair channel-locks. The next time, I bought the oil filter cap socket and it was much easier. I didn't know the size, I just bought it online, as it was just a light-duty one meant for oil filters. HERE is the one I got, it does show the size.

Good to know regular ramps may not work. I used my DIY ramps, which are real long with a gradual step, but kind of a pain to use.

The cap is just plastic, it shouldn't need to be cranked on hard at all, since it uses an o-ring for the seal.

Out of all the vehicles I've changed oil on, after having the socket, this is one of the easier ones. There are much worse out there.

If its the 2.4l, you're going to need either a socket, or an inch and a quarter wrench. You can find the wrench at a hardware store, or find the socket at an autoparts store, but watch out if they try to sell you a tall socket. Check it to see if it fits before you leave. With the oil filter being on top, you want to change the filter before you drain the oil believe it or not. Because its essentially upside down, the oil sits in the filter reservoir until you pull the filter out. The filter doesn't sit under or on the side of the motor like a conventional one. It's a black circular cap you can see on the right side from the top down.

If you just go to your preferred store, they'll help you out with your filter. I usually just go to Napa, since there's one down the street from me, and I use their oil, which is just Valvoline synthetic blend with a Napa sticker on it. You can find the amount of oil you need in the manual.

Remember to use jack stands!!
