I have been working on cars for years and I have picked up some tricks, If you take your oil cap off before you pull your drain plug the oil drains faster and there will be less old oil in the crank when it looks like its done because its not making a vacuum anymore. You do not need to let the car run for a full minute before you pull your dipstick only long enough to build up some oil preasure 10 seconds should be plenty of time. I am putting this up because I am trying to help people If anyone here feels the need to flame me for any reason kiss my ASE certified butt.
you sound like an ase certified dick!....stay the fuck away from my car!...damn!

Hey Rich,
The people on this forum are generally very well-educated when it comes to their cars, and some of them are very well-educated when it comes to cars in general. The purpose of this site is to allow people who have been educated in different disciplines, by different teachers, to discuss, debate, and disseminate that knowledge to those of us who are still learning.

I appreciate your willingness to share with us your knowledge, and the fact that you can are an ASE-certified mechanic could prove valuable, as most of us are NOT certified mechanics. However, when you end your first post on this forum with "kiss my ASE-certified butt," most people aren't going to react too kindly. Seeing as how you've only been a member of this forum for a month, and the four posts you've made (total) have been extremely confrontational with regard to procedures used in an oil change, you shouldn't be surprised when people react negatively to you basically calling us all a bunch of idiots.

I would suggest that you spend some more time reading, posting, etc. and get involved in a few discussions in a non-confrontational manner. You'll probably get much farther and might even learn something yourself. All the best.

Oh, to clarify: my use of "a minute" in the original post, referring to allowing the car to run, was colloquial. We here in Chicago measure everything in minutes, not just time. A more precise measurement may be in order, but a minute is definitely not going to hurt, and I don't think that anyone who has read or made use of this tutorial was confused on that point. Truth be told, you're the first person to have brought it up.
