Oil Change on LCR

Recommended Posts

Sride

Well, this video is just about in parity with my oil change experience on the LCR last week. I dropped more f-bombs in a stretch of 1 hour than I have in my entire life on this earth. I am never letting anyone touch my engine ever again.

The dealer claims that they see 2-3 of these per year including filters that have been installed at the factory. One of the theories is that the heat coming off the exhaust manifold "bakes" the gasket onto the metal. I am more suspicious that the filters are dry mounted and over torqued at installation.

Those who can't do, end up teaching!!

Hopefully he is not planning on installing the FRAM oil filter, as they are the cheapest POS filter out there, unless you buy Pennzoil, which as made by FRAM.

And ALWAYS remember: Righty tighty, Leftie loosey UNLESS you are moving an oil filter!! maybe that is where the problem originated??

I wonder if that was the boat's first oil change and the engine was painted WITH the oil filter in place...whicih would make it a bear to get off??

The first oil filter I removed on my LXI was just about as bad...the only thing that saved me was that it was on a remote, so it was much easier to access and apply leverage to remove. Hey guys at the factory, ease up on the steroids!!

I did like his selction of music.....

You would think, but my boat does have the remote oil filter kit (2011 LCR). I had to apply so much torque it actually warped the mounting bracket, and it still wouldn't come off. Dealer had to remove the entire oil filter mounting assembly and lines, put it on a workbench, and use a bar to torque it off.

This is one reason I always use K&N Filters - apart from being good filters, the 1" nut welded to the canister makes it easy to remove with a socket.
