HA! I got the oil out without taking the nut off. My car probably hates me now though. I just unscrewed the oil filter and turned the car on. Makes a mess because oil sprays everywhere, but I got the shit out of the car. Filled it up with mobile one and yeah.







more seriously, someone posted a link to this: www.fumotovalve.com/ a valve to replace your oil pan plug ... seems a little risky, any one use one?

Nearly every piston powered aircraft engine is equiped with a quick drain. It seems stupid that automobiles still have not incorperated them. A little engineering and it could be part of the sump with no danger of road damage. Planerench out.

They make a suction oil changer, looks like a pump up sprayer. We use them in the shop. You slip the tube down the dipstick tube and it sucks all the oil out in 2 minutes. Sping the filter off/on and then refill. They're great, especially for boats.

You can also buy a fluid extraction tank for about $150 that you hook up top your shop air. I use mine for extracting old brake fluid, 1 man brake bleeding jobs and radiator fluid out of the overflow tank.

A cousin stcuk one on his pick'm truck and it seams to work fine. Later on he welded a little cage like thingy to the oil pan protect it since it sticks out a little further than the normal plug.

The first time I changed the oil in my new (to me) cherokee, the drain plug needed 120 ft-lbs to open! (Spec is 20.) The filter was also on so tight that I eventually had to crush the thing flat with vise grips to get it off. Oh well, it'll be easier next time.

I could bet any amount of money that he's trying to turn the bolt the wrong way. Either that or he's trying to use a socket wrench set he picked up at a 99 cent store.

Careful doing that on some newer cars. The Chevy dealer overtightened the drain plug in my great-nephew's 2000 Corvette, and he broke the aluminium oil pan when he used a breaker bar. That was a $900 mistake. The really bad part is that even after taking it to multiple dealers over the past three years, the new oil pan still leaks.z

Who are these people going around tightening oil drain plugs insanely tight? I worked at a tire shop for 6 months doing oil changes and tire swaps, and I never saw an oil plug I couldn't remove with my 3/8 breaker bar. And who charges $60 for an oil change?

Oh yeah, and that guy is nuts. I feel sorry for his car.

It's the quickie change places.. They get a bunch of kids without a clue, give 'em airtools, and let 'em loose. I've seen it happen from dealers as well. Had this problem on my Civic after a 5-min pennzoil shop at the far end of a long trip did mine. No idea what the actual torque was at, but I was about sure my socket wrench was gonna give up the ghost before the pan gave up the plug.

You think THAT is cool? I drive a full size 72 passenger bus for my church on sundays. It is equiped with a turbodiesel Allison with Allison four speed auto transmission. I have power braked at a light and beat corvettes across the intersection. You know the type, he thinks he will accelerate around you and cut you off for a freeway on ramp or such. Oh, yeah he can stomp me once he gets going but if your green light reaction time is short and the power is instant you can see a corvette driver panic and maybe miss his first to second shift!

I got one ya'll can't top.

Went hunting with a friend and he brought one of his buddys along. Dude had a left hand that looked to be completly severed at one time or another. When they put it back on its like the doc didn't get it alligned quite right. I mean to tell you frankenstein has better lookin attachments than this.

So we take the jeep out to hunt some quail birds and leave "frank" at the camp. After a few stops for quail I ask my hunting buddy how "frank" f'd his arm up so bad. He said "you don't know"!! I went 'hell no I just barely know "frank"'.

Seems ol Frank thought spending $60.00 to get his tires trued was too much. So he jacks the rearend of the pickup off the ground and puts it on jack stands. Then he gets the old lady in the drivers seat to put the truck in drive and spin the back tires. As ol Ted 'would say are you with me so far'.

YOU ARE NOW ENTERING THE DARWIN ZONE!!!!

Tires are spinning and he gets under the truck with a circular saw, and guns down on the saw. Now the tires are spinning at a high rate of speed when the blade hits the tire. The tire grabs the blade and pulls the circular saw out of "franks" hand, spinning it around and cutting his hand off in one smooth motion.
I know this is unbelievable, you don't have to believe it, but I swear its true. After that I stayed clear of ol "frank" when he had a gun in his hand, because I knew he was smooth ate up with the dumb ass.

On trucks with big mud tires and even just regular mud and snow tires, if your alignment is not just right or you over or under inflate the tires or don't rotate often enough tires will become out of round. When this happens you take the truck to a real tire shop and they will spin the tires and true them by taking a cutter and peeling the rubber like a lathe. It cost 15 dollars a tire. Then you have them spin balanced. This elimantes most road noise and generaly makes a truck drive 100 % better.

When you buy new truck tires you should have this done shortly after you buy them since new tires are not truly round. By getting them round when starting you actually extend tire life. Try it some time when the grips are driving you insane.

He intended to shave the tires with the circular saw while they were spinning.

Yes Frank could f up an anvil with a feather. As they say, the names been changed to protect the terminally stupid. I really knew I was in trouble on that trip when he pulled his shotgun out of the case in the tool box and without touching the safety or racking the action took a shot at an fbird by camp. What a piece of work.

I believe that valve would get hung on some brush on the bottom of my ford. Be hell to drive through some brush in a pasture and rip that bitch off and lose the power stroke deisel. To rebuild that engine you might as well total the thing and buy a new truck.

Used to be a company called Lubrication Research that made a neat little 12-volt oil pump that you plumbed between your oil pan and oil pressure sender fitting. When the pump ran, the engine got pressurized oil, even before you started it – Great for reducing startup wear, especially in cold weather or on engines that didn't get started often.

One side benefit of this arrangement was that you could also use the pump to pull all the oil out of the pan, without getting under the vehicle - just attach a drain hose to the self-sealing hydraulic connector on the pump outlet, and turn the pump on for about 30 seconds. Worked great!
