I was under the impression that that was really hard? With the dry sump whatchamagiggit? Is there a writeup as to how to do it anywhere?bundas said:do my own about every 3000 with filter, oil/air
It is not hard if you have the right tool. You have to take off 2 plugs to drain the oil, one under the engine and one under the oil tank on the right side of the car. The drain plug under the engine need 12mm hex key(available at Sears). The other one, I use normal wrench to get it out(cannot remember what size). So the total is about $90 plus my own labor.squid said:I was under the impression that that was really hard? With the dry sump whatchamagiggit? Is there a writeup as to how to do it anywhere?
I still go to the dealer and they charge a bit under $300...it costs me about $36 to do my truck at JiffyLube, hehe. I do my bikes on my own.
Oil change is actually a very easy job. Screw off the plugs, let oil drain then fill up. Frying is actually harder....have to look when is the good time to take the food out. Sometimes my food turn to be carbon black....LOL. If they allow me to drive my car in and out of service bay and I could look closely what they are doing, I have no problem with oil change shop. I usaually use Mobile1 but I think if the generic Synthetic oil pass the same standard test, it should be fine. Or you maybe able to bring your own oil.RickBullotta said:I would never, ever, EVER let an "oil change shop" touch the Maserati. Most of those guys failed the fryer test at McD's...and in no way should you simply put a "generic" synthetic oil in your very expensive Ferrari engine...
There is one oil filter. Just unscrew like usual. I get it from under the car. It is the only way, i think. It is quite easy to reach from under the car.007 said:How many oil filters does the 42 have-if its not a silly question?
Do I need a special tool to remove the oil filter or just unscrew in the usual way? Is it easy to get at on the ramp?(under the car or through the bonnet(hood)?
