Thanks to everyone for commenting and making this a great DIY. I just finished performing my 1st oil change on this car and it all seemed to go smooth. I just need to check for leaks.
I want to add that the filter oil cap was extremely tight and hot. I had to use a cap wrench to loosen it. The green mark on the cap was beyond the mark on the metal housing so I guess the last guy that worked on the car really put some force to close it. No-harm I just matched the way it was.
Thanks again to all.
