Since the oil coolers are up front it would be nice if the filter was moved up there under one of the panels within easy reach. The battery was moved to the trunk to make room for the oil coolers, so I dont know if there would be enough room.
I might be easier to disconnect an oil cooler hose and drain it that way, but then you still need to change the filter. And it might still have an underbody panel in the way. If the cooler line hose is lower than the drain pan wouldnt the oil flow to the lowest point?

There's also a dealer in NY, if I remember correctly, that gives a good discount when you buy 6 filters. I know they used to advertise in the back of some auto magazines, but I can't think of their name right now.

Hi all, I'm hoping for some help. I've been trying to diagnose this problem for a while. The nearest dealer is like 6 hrs away, so that's not an option.
The problem is the car won't start. The starter is very slow to crank like probably 5 sec between cranks (sorry if I'm using the wrong...

I'm working on fixing up an '88 Shelby Z Daytona in tandem with an older mechanic friend, and we're at a bit of an impasse. The headlamp module is blown and we're trying to replace it, but different people are feeding us different...

Run your a/c every couple of weeks or so to circulate lubricant, keep parts free.
If storing a closed car, leave HVAC on recirculate and on dash vents only (not possible in some cars). Keeps vermin from more easily getting into the car’s interior.
