Oil Change

Filter to use: PH3593A

Note: Get new oil filter wrench.

Changed at: 204,183 mi.

The plastic oil filter ratchet attachment that covers the end of the oil filter failed me spectacularly today. The ratchet turned hopelessly inside the attachment, and the attachment got stuck to the filter. Will try out the ring kind next time.

Had to punch a hole through the oil filter with a screwdriver and twist while praying that the the durn thing would actually turn and not just rip a big hole. That was quite messy. Don't know that I want to be covered in that much motor oil again.
