Can confirm, it does get much easier.

dannyboy i am not mechanical to any degree. the least mechanical man i know. a great source of entertainment for my friends in fact! but I'm about to venture in to my first oil change this weekend. i appreciate this tutorial very much. i will need a little more research I'm assuming, but this is a great start. as i will need all the help i can get! if this works out, brakes are next! thanks for taking the time for these tutorials, some of us truly need them!

dannyboy [QUOTE=Shabodah;561129]It can be done without moving the wires out of the way, lol.

PS- Shab doesn't recommend using the Fram filter....[/QU

yes, and that is exactly why he said it may not be necessary for everyone to do so, lol.

This forums great. Excellent how-to

I just recently purchased my '04 Ion redline and I do love the car. The prior owner was definitely a bit careless with it as far as the engine goes. I just wanted to say that all of these how-to's are great! They really help me so much because I haven't worked with a car engine before to change or fix things and now I feel like I'm really making headway learning all this stuff. For example I just changed the air filter, cabin air filter, put in new supercharger oil, did an oil change along with an oil filter change and I cleaned out the throttle body along with the supercharger. Without all of the great help on here I would have had to spend much more money I'm sure, so thank you all very much! I'm very excited to participate in these forums and help out whenever I can as well!

recaro86 Thats like a quart over full on mine, drain some out. Too much oil can cause foaming and cavitation, not good.
