Sounds like the old Brasso. Our older UK an Aussie members may remember the old rhyme:Lots and lots of elbow grease... it works
To each his own. But at least you now know the process, and all the wrinkles so you can ask the right questions if the need arises. As is the case with many retail/service providers, an educated consumer is often "their worst nightmare"!!!Well done! I will definitely be taking mine to the dealer for oil changes.
#1 I used your thread as the basis for my video.There are so many things that a tech can do wrong during a routine oil change that I simply don't trust anyone else to do the job. I've seen them over-torque the drain plug or filter cap and crack the cap or strip the threads, cross-thread the cap and have it leak, forget to replace the o-ring on the cap and have it leak, install a new o-ring on the cap on top of the existing one, remove the old o-ring and forget to put a new one on, forget to drain the oil and fill new oil in (happened to a buddy with a Cruze turbo diesel, caused him a slew of emissions related problems), and sometimes even make a mess all over the engine bay. Let's just say they don't send your car to their best paid master tech for the oil change.
I have another thread in this section on changing the oil with pictures and torque specs if anyone wants to check that out as well. Not to detract from this thread at all, I definitely appreciate a video.
