    I've always changed my own oil/filter on my vehicles, and until this car it was always from underneath. But with the hassle of removing the panels, I've switched on my V6 Genesis to the suction method. I have the MightyVac hand pump model and it does just fine. The volume it extracts is 7+ quarts so I'm confident I'm getting it all. For the filter, I followed another's suggestion and purchased a low-profile socket. Then I cut off the bottom of a milk jug so there is just a one-inch or so lip, and put it under the filter once I'm able to hand-loosen it, to catch the oil during removal. Using this method, I've found it's actually quicker to change than my other other vehicles! I cannot comment on the V8 as to whether there is room to reach down from the front, but I am more than satisfied with this method for my V6!

    Pretty sure (based on other posts) there is not enough room to reach the oil filter from the top on the V8.

    No way could you access the oil filter on the V8 from above the engine. And, in any case, you still need to remove the front splash panel to access said filter - and that's half the job.

    The rear panel extends almost to the center of the car and has to be removed solely to remove the pan plug which is almost laughable.

    I remember seeing V8 oil changing instructions here somewhere, but now I can't find them. Can someone post a link? Does the oil filter direction matter?

    The oil filter is NOT directional.

    Great. I didn't think so. I remember that someone posted pictures of the oil change, but I couldn't find it.

    I don't think there is really a start to finish tutorial w/pictures on the 5.0 V8 engine on the forum although people have posted as having done it - not too happily, either.

    You have to remove the front splash panel to access the oil filter housing and the rear panel to access the drain plug. Filter placement is critical because it has to be placed symmetrically between two posts - one on the housing and one on the filter cap.

    When I get around to doing it, I'm going to take Mark's lead and use a Mity-Vac to remove the oil first, if possible. This is essentially how Mercedes does it nowadays. And, you need a 24 mm socket for the filter cap and a six mm hex wrench for the "drain bolt".

    Looks like lots of fun.

    The oil change is definitely a pain. But, it is only required every 7500 miles. I use Mobil 1 0w-30.

    I definitely think if Hyundai put in removable panels for the filter and drain plug, life would be much easier. I might even do more frequent oil changes.
