they had some 15 year old kid do it that just started and didint know anything . that would have pissed me off.
Have you tried a large pair of channel-locks to remove the oil filler cap? Might work, just my 2 cents.Mn-Sniper said:me too, if anyone any ones ganna mess up my truck its ganna be me lol, i have the exact oposite problem thoe, someone tightened my oil filler plug on one of my valve covers too far and it cant be taken off anymore, its copletely stripped out, all the little things inside it that try to keep it form being tightened too far are twisted an bent up...... i believe this is form someone else changeing the oil because i cant see the person that owned the truck prior to me changeing the oil himself or being the one to tighten it that far, i cant even get it out with a screw driver , its in there that tight.
i geuss its just reason to buy nice new chrome valve covers

Yeah, I hear ya. I used to take mine to a "quick lube" place I trusted until I made a Sharpie mark on the oil filter before I took it there - and found the same mark after they were done. So I'm not even sure if they changed the oil. Worked out better in the long run - cause now I do my own and use Mobil 1 synthetic oil and it costs the same.....bobem12 said:My buddy asked me one time why I change my own oil.

Unless you are a thinned out meth head or a scrawny SOB by nature, you ain't just crawling under my van or my car. They have to be jacked up or on ramps.dodgerulessa said:yeah, how long does it take to change the oil in our trucks? 10minutes tops
when guys say they don't have time to do it I don't understand. some guys are just lazy, dumb, or were fatherless growing up and never learned shit about cars.
