jadmt believe it or not if you look at the top of the canister it will tell you what ft/lbs of torq is required. It is more then you would think but it has worked for me on 3 changes so far.

Torque on oil filter canister nut 3.6 engine?

What is the correct tightening procedure for the oil filter canister nut on the 3.6 engine. Torque? Or do you just tighten it similarly to the old screw on type?
