Things went great! First time I didn’t get scalding oil down my arm when reaching up blindly for the oil filter. Also caught the drain plug (I usually always drop it in the drain pan) before it fell.
We burned and leaked about 2 quarts of oil over 3300 miles, but considerably less leakage on the driveway. Oil was clean, just some remnants of the pan gasket. 222k miles and counting.
