Do you have a link to this? I'll surely do this...TSR6,
You should post this in the DIY thread too if you don't mind...thanks.
Bingo.... I've heard around the same.Nice video and you're right about STEALership. I changed mine, using the bag technique, like you, but used a ratchet and the Geno's Garage tool instead of the oil filter wrench. Anyway, I was really curious what they would charge, so I called the dealership after I had changed it. They said they would charge 250.00. That made me really happy, because it cost me 15 minutes and 30.00 for the filter.
Keep truckin' man, nice video!
I do for more involved items - oil change and fuel filter change - worst that can happen is a smelly finger.Great video, I had a similar experience. One tip for you though, ditch the wedding ring when you do automotive work (or really any physical work). I know a couple guys who had to have their left ring finger amputated. They each made one careless slip and learned a painful lesson (one had the ring pinched and then ripped off his finger along with most of the tissue and the other was a 12 volt electical short through his ring. Instantly turned the ring cherry red and cooked his finger through the bone).
Looks can be deceiving Just because it is dark colluded doesn't mean it's dirty.Just did my air filter and fuel filter .. Saved $52 on the fuel filter and $15 on the air filter. Saved another $200 on labor and it took me longer to get the dang air box top off than it did to change the filter. Fuel filter was dirty at 17k but not horrible...
Agreed. Black does not mean dirty.Looks can be deceiving Just because it is dark colluded doesn't mean it's dirty.
Fuel flow test would be the only way you can say that it wasn't flowing properly
My 2014 I went to 177000 km with original filter
my 2016 I have gone 72,000 km with original filter
And likely will continue one until I have an issue I think many filters Are changed prematurely
Keep in mind I buy all my fuel at one high volume station and usually use the truck large nozzle pump
