Re: Oil change instructions

haha, just changed my oil the other day, positioned the pan too far away and when flow slowed down...i got a driveway full of oil.

only time i wish i was old enough to buy beer is when im workin on a car.

speaking of which i need to buy kitty litter. people at the hardware store probably wonder why i only have a cat every 3000 miles haha.

Re: Oil change instructions

Last time I changed my oil I was recovering from the flu so I took It to one of these quik lube places and they wanted $30.00 to do the job, I waited until i felt better and did it myself ,but I don't always have as much trouble as that guy did. J.D

Re: Oil change instructions

Wow, I couldn't stop laughing reading this. But I say forget the hole in the backyard and fill bottles of juice w/ the old oil so your garbage man doesn't think twice about throwing it into the truck.

Re: Oil change instructions

Well as for the old oil use it in ya shop heater . Put a metel bucket above the heater with a turn off/on valve . Makes great fire starter as well extra heat by burnning it . I built a shop for a junk yard few months ago . He has a very large drum outside that he pours all used oil in . Keeps shop very warm .
