Unless you are sure you can handle the answer, some questions are better left unasked.  :) 

Yes, George, some things best left unsaid.

Kinda handy to have a old oil can rolling around in the trunk.

Parking in the creek is helpful as well.

A blonde pushes her BMW into a gas station. She tells the mechanic it just died.

After he works on it for a few minutes, it is idling smoothly.

She says, "What's the story?"

He replies, "Just crap in the carburetor"

She asks, "Really, and how often do I have to do that?"

Wife tells husband there's water in the carburetor. Husband: how do you know?

Wife: I just know 

Husband: you don't even know what a carburetor is or where to find it.

Wife: I swear there's water in the carburetor. 

Husband: ok I'll go check it out, where did you park it?

Wife: in the lake...

Obviously they exceeded the 18 ft-lb / 25 N-meters that is specified for my truck.

 

That is not the only one that I have seen.  The places that I have had the oil changed at have stripped out three of them. I have had to retapped with new bolts.  Idiots.

5-Minute place stripped three (3) oil pans on our son's Jeep Cherokee

Now he changes his Yukon's oil himself (or with my help)

I am the same boat.  I am going to change the oil in my Wife's Camaro my self from now on.  Especially since I can buy synthetic oil from Costco, 10 quarts for about $25.00.

You guys are over complicating things. You don't need to use a torque wrench either. You simply tighten the bolt down as tight as you can. You know its too tight if you hear a "crack", then back off a quarter turn.  I thought everyone knew that.

OK -

Soooo-

You tighten the oil pan drain plug as tight as you can ,

preferrably with a Breaker-bar,

plus a two-foot length of pipe as an extender,

until it turns freely,

and then, (after replacing the pan),

do the same thing next time,

but with only a One-Foot Long extender ?? :rolleyes:
