1. Drain the oil first. 2. Pop the hood of your 2006 Kia and look at the engine cover. As you are looking at it on the right hand side midway down from top to bottom you'll see the words "Oil Filter". They are in black, the same color as the base plastic, so they are hard to see. 3. Remove the engine cover by removing four screws (metric). 4. You will see a round black cap approx 4" in diameter to the right of the engine with the letters 25nM on it or some such numbers. 5. Grab that and turn counterclockwise to remove. It is difficult because there is an O ring that has been compressed to seal it...but keep trying until you completely remove it. 6. Pull the old cartridge away from the cap. You'll need to be careful not to break the plastic insert the fits inside the cartridge. Dispose of the cartridge. 7. Remove the rubber "O" ring at the end of the plastic insert and the rubber O ring that sits at the base of the cap you removed, near the base of the threaded plastic. 8. Replace these O rings by opening your new cartridge filter box, you'll see them inside a plastic bag. After you get them firmly in place take some of the old oil and lubricate them thoroughly...this isn't usually a problem because your fingers are oily anyway from getting them in place but make sure the new rings are lubricated thoroughly. 9. Now place the new cartridge over the metal slot inside the oil filter housing and push it firmly, but carefully into its position in the filter housing until it is seated. In essence, you are pushing the filter over a metal lip so it rests flush against the oil housing base. 10. Now take your oil filter cap, with new "O" rings applied (they have to be replaced with each change) ensuring you are not cross threaded and screw the cap down. You will notice that once you screw the cap on it will be more resistant when you get to the O ring because it is compressing to seal the cap. Continue to screw the cap down until it stops. Comment: I found this much easier than crawling under the vehicle and loosening a cannister type oil filter which inevitably has oil running down my arm by the time I finish. This is different but not unpleasant. The hardest part is getting the small O ring off the plastic insert, but otherwise this is a better, more convenient oil filter change. One other note: I started to order my oil filter from NAPA thinking the dealer would charge a horrendous amount. NAPA quoted me a price of $12.99 and they had to order it. The dealer was 6.99 and they had them in stock...I bought two for the same price NAPA was going to charge me. Auto Zone and Advanced Auto didn't have them in their computers yet.
