Oil filter tip
Before you remove the filter, take a long thin phillips screwdriver and a hammer and drive the screwdriver down into the top of the filter about 2 inches with the hammer. Do it at a slight angle. This will drain the filter element so when you remove it, very little or no oil will come out, just don't turn it upside down otherwise oil will come out of the hole you made. Remove it straight out. Lube the new filter gasket with some clean oil and install.
