    Does anyone know a part number for an oil filter? The OP mentioned 6607 (Amazon references 6607) or that he used 7317 but does anyone know the filter to use?

    No problem. Glad to help. I found the OEM filters from the dealer to be fairly reasonable ($7.25), so I am sticking with them for now.

    Curious, not due for an oil change yet but is their any special reset on the computer to set after you change your oil?
    My Toyota has some series that included turning the key to acc and pressing the gas 3 times. This reset the computer service light countdown. Basically ever x amount of miles the oil change or service light would come on to let you know to change it, of course this trick was not in the manual but only on forums. Guess the dealers like scaring people into the shop.

    I don't think that there is a service light or other indicator on the CX-5.

    I've used Fumoto drain valves on my last 3 vehicles. I like performing a hot oil change and not getting burned in the process. An adapter is needed to clear the recessed port on the CX-5.

    Does anyone know what size hex nut is needed to remove the drain plug? I don't if I have one that big.

    The problem with drain valves is they are prone to breaking off from hitting road debris and when that happens your engine oil drains without notice. That's why oil drain nuts are flush to the oil pan (so they do not apply leverage to the oil pan in the event of impact or grounding).

    How hard is it to remove a plug during oil change?

    If you look at the pictures attached to the first post on this thread, the drain plug is a few inches above the plastic belly pan under the car. It is unlikely that road debris would break it off without you knowing that you hit something and better check for damage.

    It is not hard to remove a plug but it is also easy to get oil all over you and the valve with a nipple for a tube to control the drain of the oil is appealing.

    I've used these valves on my past 3 vehicles (Tacoma 4x4, Subaru Forester, F-150 4x4). Road or trail debris was never an issue and I routinely travel off-road.

    I use these valves because of their ability to allow a hot oil change without getting burned and ease of use. I agree it's not hard to wrench a drain plug but how many times have we spilled oil or burned ourselves?

    Never.

    I put the drain pan under the drain and let the nut fall into the pan. Never had a problem. But if I did it would be a minor inconvenience compared to shearing off a drain spout while driving.

    I believe it's an 8mm, but it's been a month since I did mine. I had the size in my Hex socket set.

    Does everybody who do their own changes also change the plug gasket?
