Today got my first service done on our van. I asked that they save my oil filter so I could see how dirty or clean it was. When I went to pay they had my filter in a plastic bag. Filter was not what I was expecting, it was not a spin on type replacement filter. It looked more like an inline fuel filter but obviously used for oil. Filter insert I was given was about 2 inches in diameter and about 5 inches long. The filter paper or whatever material was totally exposed. Is this what a Pacifica oil filter looks like or did mechanic just grab something from the trash?

Look like this? Very easy to change and no mess. Right on top of the engine, passenger side under a black plastic dome. The large o-ring fits the dome where it screws onto engine.

Filter matches your photos exactly, except pretty dirty for first 2000 miles.

I dissected the filter I got and it was filthy inside and out. I believe it must have come from an engine that ran the full 10,000 miles in really dirty conditions as it was very dark in spots. I talked to the service manage and he believes mechanic only discovered I wanted filter back after he discarded my filter. Service manage believes mechanic must have just reached in the trash barrel and pulled a random filter out.

Cartridge based filters have been around for a long time... this isn't a new "fangled" thing.
i dont see how your answer answers any of my Qs...

My comment was not in response to your question... however, a quick search shows this to be the standard K&N filter for Pentastar motors, so it should fit. I don't buy K&N products, so a part number reference lookup is as far as I go. :)

BTW, "quoting" is often used when a users responds to a question, or directs a comment to a particular user. I choose not to use a quote in my response due to the nature of my comment, and the fact that was directed to a "wide" audience.

Amazon is showing this filter fits the 2018 Pac:

https://www.amazon.com/K-N-PS-7026-Oil-Filter/dp/B00S0W6BIK/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1518715864&sr=1-1&keywords=K&N+PS-7026+Oil+Filter&dpID=41ToKKc79qL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch

Q1) Can anyone confirm this filter fits?
Q2) Can the Pac oil filter be changed out without changing/draining the oil? Since it's on top, I assume we can swap out the oil filter safely, say at 5k miles, without actually changing the oil?
Q1: I would not buy from that particular page because the only photo on the left that looks correct is the one on the top with the extension and the small o-ring. Whoever created that particular page is very confused between older Pentastar 3.6L filter used in the Town And Country and the newer Pentastar 3.6L filter used in the Pacifica.

I would go straight to the K&N site to verify their part # that directly replaces MOPAR 6819 1349 AB-001 then find the cheapest K&N price on-line.

Note: Some companies like Purolator sell our filter in a 5000 mile, 10,000 mile and 15,000 mile version. The 10,000 mile version replacement is the Purolator ONE PL36296

I am holding both the MOPAR 68191349 AB-001 and the 10,000 mile Purolator ONE PL36296 in my hand right now and I cannot see any difference whatsoever.

I am a huge fan of K&N filters too.

Q2: Yes. You can change it with engine filled with oil. I usually unscrew and remove the black plastic dome, then with a ZipLock bag (or a box or a tin can) in one hand I pull the filter out with the other hand dropping it directly into the bag.

thanks brett. the K&N filter says it matches with MOPAR 6819 1349 AA (you stated it is MOPAR 6819 1349 AB-001). i assume it is the same filter though. which filter do you use?

also, when you remove the filter without draining the oil, as you take it out and put it in the box or ziploc, is it heavily dripping with oil or only lightly?

Yep, that is the one I put in mine..

Never heavy. I suppose it could be heavy dripping if you immediately change it right after shutting the engine off (Jiffy Lube style) but I always let mine cool down to warm and I only get a few drips. I throw a rag down on the passenger side of the oil dome to catch any drips while I move the filter to a container. I'm making it sound worse than it really is...it is by far the cleanest/easiest oil filter change I've ever experienced. Remember to replace the large o-ring on the black plastic dome (o-ring comes with the filter) and put clean oil on it.

I'm not sure what is different between AA or AB or AB-001. I've only used Mopar 6819 1349AB-001 on my three previous changes and will try this Purolator ONE PL36296 next time (this weekend) and get the K&N next time.

Also note that older Pentastar 3.6L engines in other recent Chrysler minivans used a VERY different filter ... see thumbnail. I've read that confusing these two can be a very serious mistake.
