    I'm right at the 500 mile mark on my HC Charger and want to do the first oil change. I have a mechanic friend that is going to help me out because I don't want to take it any where. I read something on here at one time about the Hellcats having two bolts to drain and not the typical one, so I'm asking for a little feedback or tips. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Dumb question...but. I 'assume' (yes, I know what they say about assuming:) ......after draining both the oil cooler and engine pan, you would fill "BOTH" the engine and oil cooler throught the 'engine oil filler cap, correct? I don't want any oil starvation issues and surprises on a brand new car.

    Anyone could post pictures underneath at both drain plugs--be much obliged. I too am having a friend do this as I just don't trust the local Dealerships to do it.

    Thank you HellCat Owners!
