Finally got around to changing the oil today. Everything went well but not sure if it was worth the effort...well...give everything a shot once I suppose.
The two things I could not replace were the crush washer on the oil pan filter plug...which I think is a good thing actually. I don't think the dealer had change it either since the car was new. What came with the filter was a bronze coloured washer...the washer attached to the pan plug was the same colour as the plug itself...and slightly smaller than the new washer....indicating that the washer may perhaps need to stay in place.
Second, I could not remove the filter drain plug...it would not budge and I was afraid I may damage the hex inside the plug. Needless to say, I did not change out the filter plug o ring. After thinking about it, I wasn't even sure why this would need to be removed. I didn't have to remove it to change the oil.
Anyway, no leaks so far...I hand (tool) tightened all items to a point it was snug and wouldn't budge anymore.
One other thing, I bought myself a set of ramps to raise the car. Boy are they a ----- to use...it's quite difficult to use them without causing much mayhem!
Anyway, thought I'd give all an update.
