Oil And Fliter Change

33 posts in this topic

For 5 litres for £14 thats a bargin when ive had oil changes done in the past and ive gone to check my oil to see if its needs topping up not once have i had to top it up lol ive had a bottle of oil for about 2 years nearly lol another thing i would like to point outside my house it not exsacliy level but not on a big slope if you get what i mean does this matter it is level but when i take my foot of the brake my car does roll back a tiny bit but not that much.

ha, swap you - mine needs topping up half a litre every week nearly. i do 400 miles a week so i suppose its not that bad and its not getting any worse so f*ck it lol. looking to get a new car soon anyway.

it is quite important that you do the oil on a level surface, if its a tiny amount i wouldnt worry but if it is a bit of a slope then personally i would get the jack and axle stands out and level it.

i wouldnt worry then, the bit where i do my car is like that too. although i emptied the boot of my car one day and stupidly put the spare wheel on the ground standing up. i turned round a minute later, where the f%ck has my wheel went? it had rolled down the hill lmao :lol: dafty.

yeah, eurocarparts are brilliant. if they havent got what your looking for they can usually get it for you next day.

this is similar to what i use most of the time - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Belt-oil-filter-wrench-strap-small-65-110mm-BOHID_W0QQitemZ140400849879QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Hand_Tools_Equipment?hash=item20b08af3d7

if you want to save a few quid on that, you could always stick a screwdriver through the filter, not recommended though :lol:
