I have the V6. Does the engine cover pop off or is it bolted down. I didn't see anything holding it down.

Thanks Again

eh...

If you have ever seen chess pieces, the pegs that hold the top cover on look like the pawns. The heads of the pawns fit down into little rubber holes that simple grip them and the whole cover assembly pops off. Just carefully find the pop-points and pull it up.

Me being a short feller, I have to crawl up on a step to reach back to the filter housing without scraping the paint.

It is easy to change....after you get the gaskets off...the one on the end of the shaft is a booger. I use an old hooked scribe that I have no idea where I got...or when.

It if has the underbody skid plates on it, you have to remove that first to get to the drain plug. That is why I let the dealer do my oil changes. Though it is stupid that Kia neglected to put a opening in the skid plate to allow for oil changes without having to remove the skid plate.

Hi
Rick2456 maybe they advised to use the Suction machine and suck the oil from the level stick .
I remember we have optima v6 , when we use the suction machine it bring out half liter more oil vs draining the oil down from drain plug .

even so you are right Rick2456 a small opening in the skid plate will not hurt .

I must not have the skid plates. I did see the drain plug and found where I put the new filter on top of the engine.

Thanks
