Lightbulb Oil filter #7317 changed in MR18 motor, pics

For more complete instruction, view robj80's DIY for 1.6L motor. Props!
Don't elevate without jack stands for safety!

Crush washer in good shape.


Filter located on front side of engine block.
Previous 6607 filter here, plenty of room for longer 7317:


Bought filter wrench today. Bent plastic out of way to use wrench.
Took a little wiggling to tighten the wrench and loosen the filter.


Some drippage after filter removal. Be prepared!
Can see threads well enough to install new one.


Comparing 7317 [left] to 6607 filter


Some room to hand-tighten, but not much!


Wrenching on new filter: do NOT overtighten!
I wouldn't bother with wrench if I had Fram with grippy end.


Ahhhh, golden goodness...
Is the drain plug back in?

Got every drop, about 3.5L


Drain and dispose, DIY depot


Circulating new oil, cleaning injectors, scrubbing valve seats...
Don't try this at home
And there ya go!

Whats your interval? Ive been doing the free oil changes at the dealer every 6000kms. I have 1 more to go, then im going synthetic. Oh and I put magnets on the filter as well, those small "rare earth" super magnetic ones.

Parkway Nissan (new dealership here) has the oil changes for $26.95 now as a special. I might take the car there in the winter when it's too cold to work outside.

Have you gone there yet 08V (for maintenance or visit)? Only dealership I have ever gone to with the Versa is Plaza ... but they charge too much for labour up here !

Interval was abt 6000km with mechanic. Now drivetrain warranty done [almost] and switching to DIY full synthetic every 10000km [same as last car-sentra 1.8L].
Haven't been to Parkway Nissan yet, nor Plaza, nor Burlington.
Got the synth oil on sale $19 for 4.4L [bought 4 jugs], filter $6.xx.
Must get ABS recall done!
I've always wondered about a magnet. How's it workin for ya?

I put full synthetic in mine last oil change, I've put about 3500 miles on it in a month since the change. The oil looks pretty dang clean.

Yes get your ABS recall work done. You want to make sure the ABS is in fine shape for the winter!

Very nice! Thanks for the pics. I will have to double check my oil filter change thread to see if I included the longer filters. If I didn't I will add them in.

NOTE! 3.5L of oil was not quite enough! Topped up to about 4L, perhaps one gallon. Careful! 08v

Nice write up. Got the same tool to take those oil filters off. I change my oil around every 5000km. I find the oil pretty dirty at 5000km
