Default A1 service code

My 2010 Touring Pilot with 5,800 miles has a A1 service code. I am thinking about changing the oil myself with synthetic oil. Does anyone know if it is hard to removed the oil filter? Is this something I can do myself or should I just take it to the dealer? I changed oil myself on my 2000 4runner in the past.

Easy DIY. Filter from factory sometimes stubborn but proper tools will get the job done. Use forum search for more oil change info.

Yeah probably first time it's a bit tough but nothing you couldn't handle. Just grab yourself one of these if you don't have already

nomislk,

Have you done it yet? It is easy. I used an oil filter tool like the one linked above. I could not unscrew it using my bare hands. This is my first SUV and I like how I was able to slide in without having to jack it up like my old Accord. Get a funnel long enough to fit into where you fill in the oil.
