I am about to change oil on my new 14 Summit w/ 5.7L V8. The oil filter mount has a "drip guide" (for lack of a better term). Does this guide keep the oil from getting all over the inside of the plastic tray, or does it make a mess anyway? I'm just wondering if I will need a bunch of paper towels on the inside of that area...
Also I am wondering about the fact that there is no cover for the oil access hole.
I was told at the dealer that they stopped using the cover starting with the 2012's. It seems like all kinds of snow/salt could get up in there during the winter - doesn't seem like a good idea. Does anyone know if pre-2012 covers will fit this? Or do they want it open for cooling or something else?
