Changing the TSX oil filter is the worst.
I use about 18 inches of tin foil every time to catch the oil dripping from the filter.
Loosen the filter. Then place the tin foil under the filter and kinda form it so the oil flows down in one stream to the drain bucket.
Since the TSX oil filter is horizonatally mounted, there is no way to put oil in it before installing it.
Our TSX has always taken 5 Litres (5 US quarts) every oil change to bring it up to the full mark on the dipstick.
