    I cannot but I can give you pointers. Remove the drainplug, it is a metric allen and will be very tight. let it drain and reinstall the plug but don't try to put it back as tight as it was you should just need to snug it. Swap the filter which is not tricky, screw on the new one making sure it's straight and spins on freely until the gasket contacts the sealing surface then tighten another 1/4 to 1/2 turn by hand. Pour in 2 quarts of new oil through the dipstick tube then start and run the engine for a short time, kill it and check the oil level. 2 quarts is a slight overfill but I understand most people have been running it as such. Check fluid levels and conditions in the other 3 boxes then go have fun. HTH

    The engine oil drain plug is a 6mm allen. Use caution on the rear diff drain plug and do not over tighten it or you may strip the threads out. I think the shop manual states 17 in pounds of torque to tighten it. That is not a lot.

    John, Remember to lube the rubber gasket on the new oil filter with fresh oil before installation. Exercise caution when reinstalling the drain plug - hand start it first to insure it's not cross threaded - as stated previously - do not over tighten the drain plug. After starting and while it's running - check for leaks.

    Yessir and make sure the old filter gasket is still attached to the old filter. I shoulda mentioned that.
