Step 4: Install the filter and plug
Spin the new filter back on to the engine. (Righty tighty) When you feel the filter go all the way on and stop, continue tightening by hand, an additional 1/4 to 3/4 turn. It may actually be more depending on your filter, so check the directions on the package.
Retreive the drain plug and re-install it in the oil pan with your wrench. It should be snug, but not overly tight.
Wipe off any drips with your rag.
