Dodge journey oil change

as promised when this oil change was due
I was going to show you how to do this
this one uses a cartridge fill filter
instead of a canister filter this is a
2013 Dodge Journey with the 3.6 liter
variable valve timing pen star engine
cartridge filters have become very
popular recently it’s a lot less
expensive than the canister filters and
it’s a lot easier to do just because of
the size and pure nature of the
cartridge filters themselves so it takes
a lot less time to cartridge changes
than it does to do canister changes
again your engine oil has written on top
of your engine count this is 5w 20 again
I always like to use full synthetic not
particular as far as Bland’s but what I
do as far as brands but as far as what I
use is always the appropriate weight
this time I’m going to be using a 10w30
just because it’s a little bit warmer
out for the summer time that way the oil
stays a little bit more viscous and the
next oil change in the summertime will
be alright the 5w is a little bit of a
lighter weight so this will offer a
little better protection and started the
heat
for what all change that we’re using so
first thing that we want to do is we
want to open up our engine service cap
it says right here to remove for oil
filter service just give it a twist take
it off you can set it off to the side
right down inside here if you’ll look
this is the actual cartridge so all it
does is instead of you having physical
canister housing the filter element they
have the housing already there and all
we’re doing is replacing the the filter
element inside it itself so as far as
tools that you’ll need you’ll need a
thumb wrench you’ll need a regular
wrench with an extension
you need a thumb wrench to do the change
in the pan a six to ten inch extension
and a 24 millimeter socket I’m going to
check the rotation make sure lefty
loosey righty tighty twist to the left
you want to socket that right on top of
the nut nuts on the canister itself and
twist it loose
once I had that loose wrench off to the
side and I’ll just remove the canister
yes a little bit of oil will leak out
when you’re doing this all right here is
what your your old cartridge looks like
inside of there all right so you just
grab hold your cartridge give a yank out
set that down there’s a ring inside here
we’re going to remove the ring as well
move over
get our new cartridge this is a pure
later again I’m not particularly as far
as brands themselves but when you get
your your cartridges check them and make
sure that they have plastic caps some of
them will have cardboard I’m not a big
fan of cardboard because anybody know
who sees when cardboard gets oil on it
as a tendency to start breaking down or
coming apart plastic holds up much
better these are your filter elements in
and of itself there’s a little bit of a
locking cap that you’re just going to
insert inside of the cap and that’s
going to lock in place where it’s not
going to go anywhere and inside of your
cat you’re going to have a replacement
ring that we can feed on
on to our cut now there is enough oil
that was still around here that my seal
here is nice and lubricated I’m just
going to feed that back down a little
bit of a stick up there feed that back
down on top I’m going to hand thread it
back on now you can see it’s not all the
way anchored we’re going to take our
wrench and throw that on to the top of
that torque that down you don’t want to
over torque that because you don’t want
to strip that to the top is nothing more
than plastic polymer so once it’s once
it stops you’re done okay you don’t want
to torque it down or anchor it or take
it over tight or anything like that so
now that we’re done with that
there’s back off to the side and take
our filler cap align it with the holes
and anger it back down so we’re
completely finished with that portion
get ourselves a shop towel wipe off any
excess the next step is we’re going to
remove the oil filler cap this is right
here it should just be a simple twist it
comes right up and set that off the side
all I did was open this up so that when
I twist open the oil pan it’s going to
free flow smoothly so I’ll climb up
underneath the vehicle now if you
actually want to use a real wrench
instead of a thumb wrench I believe it’s
a 13 millimeter for the oil filter or
for the oil pan nut you’re going to
climb up underneath your drip pan ready
and we got to find our oil pan nut which
right here is going to be right here’s
our oil pan for the engine right over
here is looks like transmission so
drip pan over to the side right here is
our nut put your thumb wrench onto the
nut and twist it until you get a nice
bite on that and what you want to do
just twist it loose
my wrench doesn’t want to bite today
once you have it broken loose you’re
just going to twist it off now I will
give you a word of caution when you
first pull your vehicle up on the ramps
or if you’re climbing up underneath it
you’ll want to make sure that the
vehicle cooled otherwise this end enjoy
oil it comes out it’s going to be
scolding scolding hot we don’t want to
burn ourselves also if you’re using an
oil filter with two pans make sure that
your airport is open otherwise your oil
is not going to drain and it runs the
risk of running over the sides so we
want to take our nut out we’re going to
examine our nut a little bit to make
sure that there’s no metal shavings or
anything that’s trucked on the end it’s
part of engine maintenance because
anytime metal fibers are present that
means you have a breakdown in your
engine or something is starting to shave
metal there’s no metal fibers present in
this which is a very good sign we’ll
just let that oil drain out
one of the reasons that you want to
check for metal fibers on the filler or
on the plug is that the metal fibers are
heavier than the oil so when the engine
settles from being running all the metal
is going to settle right down here onto
the pan itself and usually accumulate
right around the tip for the pan or for
the plug
alright now I’m going to do is I’m going
to set my plug off to the side well
that’s still running I’m going to climb
out and just to make sure that I get the
best run coil through there I like to
run a half a quart through the engine
itself before I start putting in
anything pressure inside
do you want the candle what I’ll do I’m
just going to take my my quart of oil a
little bit throw
now when I see it starting to lighten up
then I know it’s good so it’s running
through and you can see it’s Scott went
from a dark black to a nice golden
that’s help and rinse out all that extra
carbon that’s accumulated inside of the
engine
down to about a trickle let that go
alright and that looks like all fresh
water starting to come out now that’s
fairly clean or to what it was
let’s take our plug reinstall our plug
and careful not to cross thread
and put it on finger tight once you’re
on finger tight you can take your
crescent wrench or thumb wrench stick
that back on there and just a quarter
turn to Snug it down now it’s snug down
it can close up all of our ports here
that support the front in case we spill
anyone again once you with your used oil
please be mindful of what you do with
your used oil lots of shops will take
your used oil please don’t just dump it
out into grass or deposit it in the
ground I mean you could be damaging
waterways or you know hurting wildlife
or anything you don’t want to do that so
might as well give it to somebody who
can use it as a waste oil burner to heat
their garage or whatever they need to do
a lot of them will take it off your
hands for free all it takes is the five
minute drive to a local shop to do that
now we’re going to start to to fill our
engine again this neck is here for a
reason and that reason is for the way
you fill your oil you don’t want to pour
it this way because it’s going to come
out right away you want to turn it so
your neck is facing inward put it as
close as you can and then start to pour
right inside there
and that way you can do that now what I
did is I picked up five quart oil for
this because this will actually hold I
think it’s a five point six quarts I
like the heat a little bit when it comes
to doing this because trying trying to
use single quarts you know you spill a
little bit trying to use a 5 quart
system you’ll spill a lot so you get
yourself a razor blade cut off the
bottom a report that you just stuck in
there careful not to cut your fingers
and now we have our own fun
and then take our five quart of oil and
using our makeshift funnel
fill the engine take a look so we have
that a port left inside so we’re going
to hold off on that last port because we
don’t want to overfill it
will do is you will remove our makeshift
funnel wipe off any excess that we have
we can throw our cap back onto our
funnel set that off to the side replace
our engine oil cap and we’re going to
start up the engine back it off of the
ramps that we can check it check the
engine oil on level ground
and we’ll back it off
and that little bit of a run was just
enough that it pumped it up into the
cartridge
so whatever oil needed to soak up into
there is already soaked up and it will
be just fine I’m gonna again you never
want to take the first reading off the
first stab back it off swipe it off take
your stab and take your reading you can
see we’re slightly below safe so we’re
about a quart low we’re going to open
this back up
reinstall our file and finish filling
our last quarter
and we’ll go with another reading all
right now we’re right in between the
lines of the safe so it’s a perfect oil
change oh and that’s basically how it’s
done it’s done the same way on basically
all cartridge filter vehicles the Mazdas
have a similar setup for this a lot of
the Fords most of your newer Dodge
anything with the 3.6 liter penstock is
going to have that cartridge filter so
hope you liked the video hope it helped

you
