Oil Change question
What did I do wrong? It took forever to get the plate back on after replacing the oil filter. It just would not line up right. Next time I am probably going to pay to have it done because it was totally not worth all the time I spent in the Louisiana heat, on my carport floor.
I barely got three quarts of oil out of it as well. Of course, this being my first time changing it myself, probably half a quart was on the carport floor and me when I got ready to clean up the mess.
I do admit I feel much closer to the beast now that we have become more intimate. I think I changed her name three times while I was doing the oil change, and none of them were very flattering.
Back to the question; is there a trick to get the sump plate to line up right?
