This is for the 5 cylinder 3.5 liter engine in the Colorado

1. The drain plug is in the middle of the oil pan on the drivers side.

Use a 15 mm socket or box end wrench to remove the plug. Drain


2. The oil filter is at the bottom front corner of the engine on the passenger side. Remove the filter. Try not to tip the filter when you

remove it so you don't get oil on other parts of the truck.

3. Rub a small of oil on the gasket of the new filter. Spin on the new filter, 3/4 to 1 turn past when the gasket starts to seat. Hand tighten


4. Reinstall the drain plug. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN OR YOU COULD


5. Add 6 quarts of oil to the oil filler tube located on top of the engine

in the front and middle of the engine compartment. It shows the location

in the owners manual. Install the filler cap.

6. Start the engine and let it run a few minutes to fill the filter with oil.

Turn off the engine and wait a few minutes for the oil to drain down to

the bottom of the engine. Remove the dip stick and check oil level.

Checking oil level is in the owners manual.
