Cool $258 Oil Change

I'm cheap so I change out the fluids on the LT myself. Last oil change (1st time w/Amsoil at 23,000 miles) one of the screws would not tighten in the oil filter cover - stripped it out

Not having a lift to get to the bugger, I took it into the the local dealer. I figure all of the money I've saved doing the services myself, well I just thru it back to the dealer. Oh well, lesson learned.

$258 for a Heli Coil is a little high, $.45 and a few minutes to drill and tap it.....Yikes!

Most of us would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.
