Hope this might help someone who has never changed their own oil and filter do so on their 2008-2012 Jeep Liberty.

I've thought about doing my own oil changes.. I just figured with the amount that oil costs and taking the time to do it with and correctly disposing of the oil.. I figured it'd be easier to get it done at a trust shop.

Thanks for that.
I'm no tree hugger but theres a good reason for turning in used oil. Get yourself a 5 gal bucket with lid from any restaurant and turn it in every 4 changes.

Love how they go up there with the video camera showing the filter stuffed up there.... then just show you a generic filter removal video for that part....

For it to be a worth while video, actually show me how you get the freakin filter off!

Sorry, but in my opinion, a worthless video.....

Agreed! They switched from the 4WD position to the 2WD removal. What's the trick for removing the filter on the 4WD?

Thoughts on regular or synthetic oil for 96k mile 08 liberty? Worried about making the switch

Squeeze and twist your arm up there.. Pray to (whatever supreme power you may or may not believe in) you don't need a filter wrench to get it off, then pray to (whatever supreme power you may or may not believe in) again that you were able to get it tight enough that it doesn't leak....

A royal pain in the @ss.
