Oil filter help.

Hey guys I've been a lurker for a while, but have made a few posts. This is bothering me. I haven't been into DIY mechanics for long at all, so today I cleaned my air filters for the first time (still hoping I did it right.) I was at Autozone and realized I haven't changed my oil filter and it's an 06. I think it's about time, but I have no idea where to begin since I've never changed oil before in my life (pretty spoiled by my parents and didn't have a drive to learn in highschool days.) I really would like to get to know more about my truck and work on it more, baby needs some love am I right? I've googled how to change oil filter but nothing came up, just hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks for your time -David

Hello All,
I am a newby in this forum and I think I am in the right thread. I just changed oil and filter in my 2007 Titan XE and when I changed the oil filter I noticed the base on the engine where you screw the filter on is much larger than the base on the small oil filter. I installed a Purolator PureOne PL146190 and it is a small filter. Do they make a larger filter that will match the full size of the mounting base on the engine. Why would they make a large mounting base on the engine to put on such a small filter? I would think they would have a large filter for an engine that takes 6 1/2 qts of oil on an oil change? The filter I took off was even smaller than the PureOne. Has anyone found a larger filter to replace these small filters?
