How Ironic which is my fav word recently. I just watched you change the cabin filter on YOUTUBE and saved it. You get around huh?
Nice work fishy! It always feels good doing that yourself and no doubt your own way.Winters oil change how its done
Hi, just see your comment about fitting the Fumoto valve to the engine drain. It’s a simple but good idea and will make the whole process of changing the dirty engine oil a more pleasant one. Can I ask if you considered removing the oil with a Pela type vacuum pump via the dip stick hole?Nice work fishy! It always feels good doing that yourself and no doubt your own way.
A few things that make it easier for me are a fumoto valve (avoids need for crush washer change) and I just bought an 'oil udder' for the filter change. Some also use the udder to remove the drain plug. I have yet to use the udder, but it's suppose to help keep oil off the hands, ground, etc. Some argue the hazards of used motor oil are the chemicals, impurities, and it's ability to enter the skin and blood stream. If nothing else, just being able to do the oil change without using more chemicals to clean up a bigger mess.
Until we all move to EVs, we'll probably continue to see more new gee-whiz aids to assist with messy oil changes.
