Oil Change

The oil filter is just above the rubber underside shield, just behind the radiator, to the left side of the water pump, and slightly right of center. The 13mm drain plug is approx. 1 foot directly behind that on the ''back'' side of the pan.

  • Lift oil fill dip stick.
  • Remove oil filler cap.
  • Remove drain plug and drain oil.
  • Remove oil filter.
  • Replace filter.
  • Re-install plug w/ new washer.
  • Replace oil
  • Replace cap
  • Check fill level/adjust as needed

A sheetmetal or hearty cardboard drip pan for under the filter may help, as the oil wants to drip down onto the exhaust when the filter is removed.
