Bottom mounted filters probably perform better because of gravity & won't soil the engine bay should a leak occur.No issue installing an OEM filter here. No different than on the other cars I change oil on that have them - except it's the only one where I have to get underneath the car.
That's using your dipstick, Jimmy!It looked like seven quarts was going to be too much, but then it dawned on me that 6-⅔ quarts is exactly one-third of 20 quarts (four 5-quart jugs). Sure enough, 6-⅔ brought the level to just below the full line, and now I know that four jugs will get me exactly three oil changes.
Probably beating a dead horse here, but I can confirm the same...removed oil through dipstick via vacuum pump and it took exactly 7L to get to the full line on the dipstick.Oil was extracted from dipstick tube with a 12V electric pump. It took no less than 7 litres to reach the full mark on the dipstick.
More oil is extracted via pump than drain plug
Filter requires taking out the one clip and twisting the round plastic part on the front cover. Then you just reach in and it's right there.So is the oil extractor useful where you don't have to remove the cover under the car? Is there a way to get to the filter without having to get rid of all those screws holding the cover on? I have heard mixed things about the extractor not getting out as much oil as pulling the drain plug and vice versa.
