  • Wrong Way To Pour Oil

    Right or wrong way to pour oil..., and why. One minute video. For those who change their own oil, something maybe new to you also (waa for me).

    I typically pour out of 5 quart jugs, with a hollow handle like a milk jug.....

    But years ago, I learned to hold the quart bottle sideways (large flat side down), for just this reason.

      Hmmmm. What about using a funnel? I always liked a little glugging, because if some additives or other ingredients had stratified or partially fallen out of suspension, I figured the glugging would help to get them out of the bottle and into the sump.

      Of course, if you use a funnel, it needs to be spotlessly clean. The entire purpose of an oil change is to get dirt and contaminants out of the engine, not to put new dirt and contaminants in.

        HEHE, Sounds like a little glugging BEFORE the oil change. Least the Z06 oil fill is in an easy spot with no funnel needed. I always turn the jug sideways pretty easy. What is hard is hitting the valve cover fill hole on the GMC 5.3. That needs a funnel.

        Still better than the Toyota Tacoma I bought a new 2016 and after 1 year of ownership I could not wait to get rid of it. Bought a left over 2015 GMC 5.3 then just bought the 2018 GMC
        with again the 5.3 (love that engine) wanted to beat the HORRENDES stop start tech starting on the 2019 Trucks.
