just finished the oil/filter change today, it really is very simple. I came across this writeup after the fact, but had read some other writeups. There was no need for a swivel socket on mine to remove the filter cover, just a long extension and the lisle "short" socket. Also I'd avoid the fram filter, AC Delco OEM stuff is available at most places, I bought 3 filters through Advance auto, and of course walmart has the 5 qts for like $26 right now, not sure why that link showed truck and suv but you just want the regular 5w-30 synthetic mobil 1.
This way I know the oil is what it should be, and the filter is OEM.
Edit: oh, the reset takes just a minute. I was at 61% but so what, the filter was not stock, I can only hope the oil was mobil 1 not being the original owner. I plan to change the oil every 9 months/3k is what it will work out to. On torque specs, heed the specs! Don't be trying to crank down on the drain plug or the filter cap. I found a writeup where someone mentioned putting a little marker or paint on the oil filter cap cover and the engine block and installing back with basically that same setting (assuming you were proper to begin with). They have seals, so don't go stripping, cracking, and generally mucking up stuff by overtightening.
