Oil filter change

I just changed the filter at 1400 miles and cut it open to see what kind of debris was in there. Not too bad, but you can see some speckles of aluminum as expected. But the oil is clean and the filter looks to be doing its job. I'll probably do it again in another 1500 miles. Super simple. 24mm socket and a rag to grab the filter. Nice and neat.

I can't see the filter at all from up top. Do you have to go underneath and remove the large plastic splash guard in its ENTIRETY to get to the filter or can you just drop a corner or reach around? I'm trying to decide if I will drain oil through the lower drain plug each and every time or sometimes suck it out through the dipstick tube. On some of my vehicles I can remove the filter from up top making the decision easy.

How much was the filter? The last time I had the oil changed on our T&C, they didn't stock it, said it was a "special filter". I had to go to Auto Shack and buy one for $18. Add the cost of the oil change to that (they gave me a $2.00 credit for the filter), I would have been better off taking it to a Chrysler dealer.

I paid $11.12 plus tax for this filter and O-Ring at the dealer. He said it was the same filter as earlier Pentastar engines (since 2014). I haven't tried installing it though.

Thanks, I could have gotten it a few dollars cheaper, but Auto Shack was the closest parts store. Regardless, it's still a bit pricey for an oil filter seeing as how it's the same one.

I just checked RockAuto and they sell 2017 Pacifca oil filters (including o-ring) for about 4 bucks each.

Makes sense. At that price, I can buy a couple and don't have to worry about not having one when I need it.

Thanks for the input....

The filter is up top on the left side of the engine cover. It's a black plastic housing with what looks like a black plastic bolt head molded into it. It's 24mm and has a torque spec listed on it on 25nm.

As for the filter, yeah, rock auto has them for 4-5 bucks that includes the o-ring. I got mine through Amazon for $8, a wix filter. Nothing special about it.
