I drive an '02 Nissan Sentra, 2.0L The oil filter is plainly visible. By plainly, I mean you need a snake light, an intricate set of mirrors and lenses, and a jack that raises your car 15 ft. Even if my hand were transparent and could dematerialize through objects, I would still have dire difficulty getting the oil filter wrench to find its way through the multiple parts of the 2000cc engine that's stuck in about a 1980cc space. So I say "screw it", and cough up the extra $5 to have some other Joe 6-pack do it while I'm on my way to buy groceries.

When I was living in SoCal, there was a chain of Goodyear stores that offered lifetime oil changes for your car for $89. When I bought my Camaro, I decide to do this. Paid for it self after a year. I had my car for 3yrs before I left CA. I was looking for the same deal here in TX, but no such luck.

My '96 Maxima is a bitch to change the oil in as well... Let me put it this way - you start by taking off the front right tire, then the tire well panels....... Jonathan

ALOT of newer cars have the oil filter between the rear side of engine and the firewall. The half-shafts and stearing rack are the main obsticles. It's really funny, it's almost like a business deal between car manu. and oil changing stations. Sorta like the obvious deals that take place between the car corps and the oil Corps. A first rate american corperation butt fuck to the public.

How about this way to change oil....... Choose day when wife/girlfriend is away. Get in car, go down to local parts store. Dig around the trash to find some empty quart containers.... Check oil level, wipe dip stick on shirt sleeve. If engine is 'oily', wipe hands off on shirt or pants. Go to local quick change place, pay to get oil changed, ask for oil filter (after they let it sit & drain). Go back to house, park car. Take empty oil containers and lay in drive way next to 'old filter you asked to keep'. Go into garage (or laundry room) and run in place for 10 minutes to get 'worked up'. Go inside, wash hands. Get 'beverage' and enjoy the day. When wife/girlfriend returns, tell her of your horrible day changing oil.... make sure you show her the oily shirt. (And if she asked about the used oil, tell her you brought it to the recycling center). (Inspired by that advertisment for Rice Krispies Treats....)

Yeah, but that's only for cars... Trucks and SUVs do not have oil... :) PS: I cannot easily change the oil in my Jeep-- my arm gets stuck in the skid plate opening.

I have a theory on this. I've noticed that oil change deals are cheap and plentiful in big cities full of yuppies who never fix their own vehicles. In rural areas, lube joints charge almost 2x as much as a sort of class-system punishment for those white collar workers who are too lazy to change their own oil.

Saw that Fram valve at Walmart. I don't think it's for me.... as I have a habit of driving the car into the 'back field'. I get my oil in 30 gallon drums.... granted, I run 15W-40 in just about everything.... Nice having a 30+ gallon used oil barrel.... Changing oil on the cars is a real dog. If it's not a crossmember, it's the exhaust pipe or some other damn thing. Pickups, well, not as bad (since I have 'older' ones). New ones, you might have to worry about the front crossmember and/or diff in the way. Here, I see oil changes from 15-25.00 But I can do it for less the 15 bucks...

My car is only about 6" off the ground...That drain thing would get smashed within the first 5 miles of installation.
Link Posted: 7/10/2002 5:12:30 PM EST
No it wouldnt... It does not protrude any more than your normal one. The tube is only used when you are changing your oil. It is the atachment of the tube end that opens the valve to let the oil drain.

I ran my riding mower into a tree root so hard a couple weeks ago that it bent the front of the deck right into the blades. Bent them all to hell. In a "moment of frustration", I grabbed the steering wheel, and flipped the sunovabich onto it's side to look. All the oil promptly drained onto my driveway, Doh! This thread made me have a vision of draining a car the same way.

I thought real men never change their oil? Just keep adding oil to top it off over the years.
