As Randy says, if you want to keep about 1 quart of dirty oil in your engine, change the oil first, then the filter. I prefer to remove most of the dirty oil.

I start the extractor, change the filter, then refill the oil. Multitasking.

Since any oil you pour into the filter housing, drains into the crankcase as you are putting the cover back on, I don't bother.
