Oil filter is on the top of the engine.When you open the hood you see cup on right hand side.You can not see filter just the cup. Filter is inside. It does not look like regular filter.

thanks for the location of the filter. i take it that the cup unscrews and there is a element inside that is replaced.nice to have it on top. does it leak much when the cup is removed?

I do not understand. What do you mean by that? Does it leak much when the cup is removed? There is some oil in the filter, but you can protected engine from splashing using cloth or paper towel.

#14 of 15 Oil change schedule..change

I notice in the GC "Owners Manual" for "2009" that includes the 2008.5 diesel (a 2008.5 diesel is a 2009 GC that has the emission certified diesel for 2008 and is VIN'd 2008, last ones built were Dec.2008) that the A and B oil change schedule is gone, now says oil change for the diesel is 12,500 or 20,000 k/m or 12 months whatever comes first (page 478), and you are not to go past this. Any thoughts?

Would like to know if anyone has has a recent oil change using the synthetic oil. My wife took our Jeep in for the first oil change and I checked the oil level and it was OK but the oil looked dirty. Do you know what the synthetic oil should look like? We plan on following the maintenance schedule and will look at changing the oil again in 12,000 miles. So far we have been happy with the Jeep except for the highway MPG is around 23MPG.
