You look like an 80s Rocker. I bet you have Def Leppard on cassette there somewhere.lol

Ha! Thanks... but for the record, I'm a "metalhead" now, just between bands. here's my basement






In regards to the oil filter, it doesn't really matter at this point, as you may have also noticed the "supertech" oil.


I typically run cheap stuff first, just to get something clean in there.
once i'm confident the engine is good, i'll drain it, and go with something better long term.



Fun Fact
My buddy used to work at A oil filter factory, they made Fram, Bosch, Purolator, and others.
He said they're all the same filter going down the line. they just paint them different colors.

been running the cheap fram filters on my durango for 15 years, and it passed 350k with no sign of stopping

Thanks for the heads up...
The video was supposed to end with the bucket shot...

should be fixed momentarily


--EDIT--
Video is fixed now. ~3 mintues long

Went to swap in fresh plugs and wires today, and each of the plugs is buried in dirt...

i was able to mostly clear 1 3 & 5 with my shop vac, but not sure what to do about the plugs under the intake manifold...

Don't have compressed air at the moment (garage lacks sufficient power), and i'd prefer not to pull the intake...


Any tips?

take a piece of fuel line and duck tape it to the shop vac hose to get down in there.

I use compressed air in a can, the kind you can buy for cleaning the insides of your computer. Gets cold as hell after using it for a bit but that probably won't bother you. LOL

It took some doing, but i got the dirt out from around the spark plugs...
took a lot of scraping with dental picks and screw drivers, and a portable compressor i forgot i had.

gotta say, i'm not looking forward to doing that again.
