Just added another reason why I like this thing: changing the oil is a breeze. The pan isn’t set far back at all, and the filter is pretty far forward with no obstructions. I can probably change it without jacking it up, but I prefer elbow room if I can get it.
The drain plug gave me a little backsass, but it was no match for these (lack of) guns right here. The filter was easily removed even with a hand drenched in oil.
The oil was looking a little dirty after 3,500 miles, so I’m glad I was proactive this time. I will be monitoring it closely henceforth and sticking with 3k-3.5k intervals because that’s how I’ve done all the other vehicles under my care.
The pickup is also due for an oil change... but it’s really cold and I’m tired ~_~
