So, I have a new 2003 and way back in August I decide it's time to do the very first oil change on this vehicle. So I get the Fram filter & the Syntec Blend gallon container (This was before I ever knew about BITOG) and get to work. Drain the oil okay, but man oh man the filter!! Could not get that thing off. I bent a 'strap' filter wrench, and stripped a filter-cap socket wrench trying. Like a dolt, I then decided to use a chisel to loosen it. The predictable happened --- I nicked a small hole in the filter. At this point, I decided to cut my losses and use my free roadside assistance to have the van towed to iffy Lube. I figure, let them get this thing off just this once, and from now on I'll do my own changes. Problem was that the **** filter was oozing oil like crazy. It was getting everywhere. I grab about 4-5 paper towels and wedge them between the filter and the exhaust manifold to contain the spillage. Get the change done after having it towed there. Upset at them because they charged me a $1 per bottle "bottle charge" because they didn't have 5W20 on tap --- Oh well, no choice in the matter. For DAYS I'm smelling buring oil. I am not too surprised at this because there was oil all over the exhaust in there. a couple of days after this I discover BITOG. I learn about filters & oil. I return the stuff I bought for the initial oil change and I learn that Pennzoil is a pretty good oil. Since that is what Jiffy Lube used, I'm feeling pretty encouraged that things are fine. I check the oil level to be sure, and yep! It's full! Man oh man does it stink of burned oil! Long story short, It's time to change the oil. This time I have a PureOne filter and some oil I had special ordered: Delo 400 Synthetic 0W30 . I have been itching to get that oil in there & decided tonight to change out the Pennzoil even though it only has 2300 miles on it. I drain out the Penn and then go to unscrew the filter. Yep! You guessed it! The wad of paper towels is still there!! Hard as a rock and now oderless. Stupid idiot dumb asses didn't take the paper towels out . I am so lucky this didn't burst in to flames. I have no idea why it didn't. Moral(s) of the story: 1)Don't do the first oil change on a new vehicle (especially if the union is in contract negotiations with the manufacturer -- They must use an airgun to tightern those things on there. 2) Even if a quick lube place seems to have done a good job, they probably screwed something up you'd never expect. 3) Delo 400 Synthetic rocks! My engine is so quiet now!
