[DML] Re: Oil Changes



Jacking the car up and going underneath it to change the oil is the perfect oppertunity to inspect the C/V boots, the TAB's, the front suspension (and lube it) check for exhaust leaks, fluid leaks, etc. The underside of the car is a very neglected area because it is so hard to see anything unless the car is raised up. Regular inspection avoids the possibility of getting stuck with the car if you find and fix a problem early. It is a whole lot more than let the oil out and them fill it back up! I don't like the quick-valve thing much, anyone, even without a tool, can reach under and let your oil out.

It will hold itself in there, and then channel the oil down to your drain pan. After my first oil change, I came up with this solution and have been doing it for over 10 years.
