I actually don't think they use a platinum plug from the factory...so maybe that's why?

I'm not savvy on spark plugs. They're a bitch on the hemi motors though, 2 plugs per cylinder...16 plugs total...$80 or $90 bucks for plugs before mail in rebate. Guy at advanced auto was in shock

Chevrolet was kind enough to put the oil filter right ontop of the front driveshaft in my 4x4, so when I pull the filter off the oil drains right onto the u-joint and it goes EVERYWHERE

Mobil1 Delvac full synthetic is great stuff if you can find a supplier...

I will buy it and change it myself when I move into my new house.
Stick with oil change places for the moment and none of em have that.

this little jewel is a must for anyone doing oil changes at home. Have had mine on since the truck was new. Got 135,000 on her now.

as a collision repair (body shop) owner/operator I take a bit of offense to the generalization. Now unlike some shops, we don't buff regularly besides the occasional denibbing/buffing. How are we supposed to repair vehicles without touching the paint?


Didn't mean to rustle any jimmies...

I guess it's just what I have noticed through the lens of my friend who details professionally. Not saying you don't know how to do paint correction (AFTER the paint), but generally detailers are better at correcting paint than body shops or dealerships. He and I have both seen some horrendous stuff after an expensive bill and a "professional" detailing job from a dealer or after body work.

And I guess a personal experience has left my arse a bit chapped. I spent about 5-6 hours on my brother's paint on his Silverado when he first got it. When he had to have his door replaced, they took the liberty of polishing the entire truck with something too abrasive and brought the swirls right back. The same thing happened with my friend's 3 series (the detailer) who specifically told them to not touch the paint.

Not a personal knock on you at all, I'm just letting you know what I base my opinion on. Your shop may be an exception but I would say a majority of body shops are pretty bad at paint correction. While they are masterminds at body panel replacement, dent removal, freshly painting a panel, etc., I would say a pro detailer is better after the paint has been laid down.

Take it FWIW.

no problem. We sub out the heavy stuff (detailing-wise) but on occasion we tackle it if no one is available or they're too busy.

How will that help with the oil filter?

I take the skid plates off for the crankcase and it goes great.

When the oil filter comes off, the splatterfest starts


It's really not all that bad. I could easily make a little pan funnel and avoid all the mess if I wasn't a lazy ass.

Buy a can of brake cleaner or punch a hole in the filter first and let it drain while you draij the crankcase.
Thats how i do it on those trucks.
I put a remote filter on my 98

re: What oil & oil filter do you use?


I had a 94 z71...basically the same...

buy a box of Gallon Ziploc Freezer bags...

let truck cool down...

break filter loose, but not enough to let oil leak...

place bag over filter...

Remove filter with bag over it and let drop into bag...

that is the best I could do without making a pan funnel like the oil change places use...
