    Is the oil filter on a V6 up on top? If so, how do you stop the oil from leaking all over the engine when you change it.

    Drain the oil from the bottom oil pan first. Then where the filter is right under neath there is a black rubber cap, take that cap off and what I do is I use a can, any can will do u can even use a beer can just cut the top off. Then I slide that can under the filter. So when you take the filter off all that oil will drain into the can. Then just wipe off the access oil from the holding oil dish that holds the filter and install the rubber cap back on. Clean and no mess. Hope this helps. Good luck!!!
