Hit 1000 miles so I decided to change the oil today. Everything that could go wrong...did
Drained the pan and forgot shop rags. Went inside to get them and then realized I forgot to adjust the catch basin for the change in flow out of the pan. Oil everywhere,
Then I couldnt for the life of me get the filter off by hand since Jeep tourqued the thing so darn tight at the factory.
Struggled for about 15 minutes and then pulled a muscle in my shoulder.
Then my old filter wrench was a stretch too small so I couldnt get it all the way around. So I ended up having to take the plastic splash guard off and basically crush the filter with the wrench. Oil everywhere again. Good god why does this stuff always happen to me!?1?!?
Anyway, now my afternoon is shot but the oil is changed! At least next time it will easier.
