I changed my oil today, this may be useful to some.
1. Oil filter was very, very tight. I used a strap wrench and it wouldn't budge. I let it cool for 3 hrs and it moved.
2. The gasket stayed on the block, be sure to check for this.
3. I used mobil filter M1-210, this is correct. The dealer said 6.4 and 6.1 use same filter, not true. The 6.4 nipple is larger.
4. The drain plug is not magnetic. The threads are M14-1.50. I used Dorman #65216 from Discount auto parts.

Are you sure about that part # on the Dorman mag plug? Parts cross-reference shows "does not fit your vehicle."

Well, I took the old one with me. Neither NAPA or Advance had a listing. So I matched it up and it fits. Hope it doesn't hit the crank. LOL
