3.2 V6 oil filter

Hello folks,

Has anyone removed the oil filter cartridge on the 3.2 V6 yet? Is it a messy operation? Is a special wrench required, and lastly, are there any pitfalls to watch out for? Thanks in advance.

It's no different from the 3.6 used in.. well.. everything else Chrysler builds. Simple, clean, and easy process, even though I prefer to pull the engine cover right off for easier access.

the only thing different about it is apparently its the filter used on a specific model of grand Cherokee, not the same as the wrangler and others

Actually the Pentastar family of engines for 2014 uses a different filter then the previous engines.

When they say about oil filter "cartridge" is it that looks like bare piece of corrugated carton with the round tin on thr upper and lower attached to it ?

Pretty much, minus the tin end caps.

How difficult is it to remove the V6 engine cover?

Grab and pull. Start on one side and work your way across. Simple as can be!
