Re: oil capacity spec vs dipstick
I have a nice cement floor...
I also like doing my own oil changes. (for time time being- I wont pay for an oil change).
But- at home depot they sell the plastic sheets for painters- I get a nice thick one.
I lay this down on the floor.... then I drive the vehicle over it.
I then lay down a piece of large cardboard between the wheels.. (like when you buy a flatscreen tv-- I save the large flat pieces).
this allows me to slide in easily (vs cement).
But any small drops of oil that splash- are absorbed by the cardboard...
if any large spill occurs-- I have the plastic to hold it in--- while I cleanup...
But- once done- I can fold up the plastic. I have it all setup so that changes are easy...
