Maybe thats why he was using a couple of stacked 10x2's? IMO, that turned me off on the whole video. I'm a fan of DIR-DIY. "Do It Right" - DIY.I just hope I can get the beast up on my ramps. My G8 GT air dam was too low in the front, and my GTO scrapes as well. But the front on the Stinger seems closer to the front wheels so maybe ....
What you didn't like my buddies wood blocks No im' just messing with you. Yeah it was sketchy but i know it was secure but yeah that't not a normal thing to do. We first went to my brothers shop and when we got there the lift was being used and so i had to resort to jacks and some good old wood Next time should be betterMaybe thats why he was using a couple of stacked 10x2's?

Just need to invest in a drain valve.Many cars are like that. It's easier to balance the engine/transmission for weight and the body cross members for structural integrity than to move something just to make oil changing less messy. Cut a piece from a milk jug or something if you do it yourself. I've done that on several cars.
I just found this when doing some more research.
No need for a flex funnel with these "on/off" type valves...Just picked up a 2016 Sorento and have not had a change to change oil yet...will be getting one of these for sure. Dont like the sound of 16+ bolts either to get to it, perhaps will be firing up the dremel on that one too!I'll be installing a Fumoto valve on my first oil change. Had this on my Optima, and Sorento, and other cars in the past. Makes it super easy and clean to drain the oil. I'll also be cutting out part of the under body panel and making it so I just have to remove a small section rather than the whole thing. On our Sorento there's something like 16 bolts to remove the thing, at least the Stinger isn't that bad!
Do a search for flexible funnels - they are basically a lead sheet covered in plastic and work great at directing oil flow and drips away from crossbeams and such.
Simple answer is no. Keep records and receipts. Kia would have to put it in there warranty information that says oil change must be done at dealership to keep warranty and they don't. Magnuson moss warranty act. Look it up.Just a thought if you change your own or oil might that not void the warranty. Apparently to have it serviced you can take it anywhere just so long as they have a certified mechanics, so I would imagine Jiffy Lube or any of the other speedy lube places would fall under that criteria . So with that being said can Kia void the warranty , if you're not a certified mechanic and you change your own oil ?
