6.0L oil: possible to change the filter w/out draining oil?
Changed my oil and filter last week. There is a slight bit of weeping around the oil filter canister and I suspect the o-ring is misaligned or damaged.
Anyone know if it's possible to just drain the oil filter canister without draining the entire oil pan? I.e. if I pull the drain plug on the canister and/or remove the filter, is all 15 or so quarts of oil going to come out? Wondering if I should be prepared for a small gusher....
6.0L with SMB conversion. Oil filter is in a vertical orientation with the drain plug on the bottom.
Thanks in advance for any sage advice....
