This really doesnt matter either way you do it, but I usually break the oil filter loose first and pull it up alittle and prop it up by sticking a screwdriver or something on the side of to hold the oil filter suspended inside its housing. When you drain the oil, this allows the oil sitting in the oil filter housing to go back into the pan and come out.

Can we get the sequence of opening drain plug, oil filter cap, oil fill cap?

I was under the impression if you open the oil fill cap before you open anything else, oil will flow out the top from internal pressure.

Can one of you guys set this straight?
