    not going to be home for my 1st oil change on my 2011 and want to make sure i have what i need without taking anything xtra, so i was wondering what size the drain plug is and do you have to take the skid plate off to get to the drain plug like i did on my 04. thanks for the help.

    Probably a 13mm but just crawl under there with some sockets and see which one fits. You don't need to remove the skid.

    I used mobil 1, the filter size is M1-102, should cost around 12-13 bucks and Mobil 1's 0W-30 synthetic, should cost around 22-24 dollars for a 5 quart jug. Since the engine takes 5.5 quarts you'll need to buy a seperate quart at around 5 bucks. The drain plug is 14mm and I used a crushable washer and torqued it down to spec (30 ft/lbs)

    I didn't see where you identified which engine you have. The 4 cyl takes more oil than the 6. Better to have enough oil with you after you drain than realize you need more than you have.
