I need to change just my oil filter. I was wonder how much oil will come out of the engine if I try to do that only without draining the oil?

ok, so it's a straight shot in the bottom of the engine casing. I thought it was placed higher so not much would come out.

actually, you won't lose all of it... I pulled the filter out first once when doing an oil change and only 1/2 quart or so came out. When I unscrewed the drain plug it poured out a lot more oil. Why bother though? You'd have to have some oil to top it off anyway, might as well change it.

Edit: Maybe it's different between '03 and '07 models?

Yes, and you can live with HIV too. But why?
