RE: [DML] Re: removing oil through the dipstick



Get a pair of the yellow Playtex kitchen gloves, the largest size you
can find.  The oil won't seep in, there is a minimal layer of insulation
in the glove, and if its large on your hand that will help too.  You may
get spattered a bit, but you won't get burned.  Oil on the frame won't
hurt it,  just wipe it away.


On that note, wipe up around the drain plug before you start to remove
it.  You want minimal grime and grit there when you swab it down again
just before inserting the new plug.

Thanks David and all. My concern is not spilling hot oil on the frame
and myself. Of course I would have to get under there to change the
filter. While I am down there I would remove the drain plug and drain
out whatever dribbles are left. It's a sudden flow of hot oil that
concerns me. Most instructions I have seen say let the car run for
five minutes then drain. That means the oil will be hot enough to be
dangerous for little old me. :-)
