Fresh oil in the subie and my mothers 4Runner today. When doing the 4Runners oil my hatred of quick change oil shops was ow found as they put everything on way too tight but thankfully swearing and brute strength got the oil filter off which was the worst of it.

I guess it's better to be too tight than too lose and you dump all your oil going down the road and lock up the motor, which that happens too.

It was tight enough for me to go buy a wench but sadly that didn't work. I just had to use my hands to get it off. Think next week I'll get some new spark plugs for the Subaru and it should be up to date on basic maintenance stuff.

The wrench-type filter tool has helped me once before, I haven't tried the other type yet. Danged monkeys.

Big Channellocks work great on filters if you can get one in there. OR, you can puncture the filter with a screwdriver and spin it that way.

No, don't stab cause then you're ****ed if it still won't come off.

That style works best, have yet to have one not take a filter off, even with a reducer and half inch ratchet.

Internet has been dead, but got the top latch caps onto the Miata so now the top seals nice and tightly. Brother ended up getting a Kensun digital A/C HID kit for free off a car from work that was traded in since they wanted it back to stock before putting it onto the lot. So he bought some Morimoto 9006 HID bulbs to use on the Miata for now. I am getting him to properly retrofit the Genesis and Audi with D2S setups, he'll only have the cost of bulbs into the Miata in that regard and I doubt it'll see much night use anyway.

Included mic for BT calling with the Kenwood was barely adequate, ordered a better mic from Amazon, came in, hooked it up, winner! I got it wedged into the dash between where 3 parts come together, it points right at my face, and is out of sight. I think I got the bluetooth music skipping solved by putting the phone directly below the radio. The ipod would work from the cup holder or armrest cubby just fine, still had a couple skips but it's MUCH better than before.
