CRD oil change

Why are people saying put half the oil down the oil filter tube to "coat the bearings" on the right side of the engine when the oil is just going down through the oil pump. Makes no sense.

I don't know either. Watched on Videos. My first oil change is coming up. But what could it hurt.

Why take a chance? The results could be catastrophic.
It's only a couple minutes extra time and in my opinion, well worth it.
Gives me time to do other work.

I have never really looked into it either. But it must be in the procedure for a reason. It takes a little extra time, but yesterday I changed my fuel filter at the same time so it wasnt so bad.

It can't hurt, and it really doesn't add that much time as you can alternate pouring oil in both spots. I probably poured about 40% down the oil filter tube on my last change. Let it sit for 15ish minutes before you fire it up.

There was a really good mechanic on here name merlin, and his idea was that side is a little dry for a split second.

Technically it is the "best way" to do it... I never bother.

that link is not working ... but get one of these... next time you change the oil.

if you leave the skid plate on there .. yes it's a mess, but with the value you can tube the oil.

I went with the version they sell that has a 90 degree drain. I don't need to use a hose and there's no mess!

i got the fumoto drain and yes, i should have gotten the one with the 90degree elbow. I currently jack up the front slightly, slide in a low 5gal bucket, attach a hose and we're off to the races!

Make sure you get the valve with the curved seal for our oil pans. If you do not get it, the little o-ring seal that is on it will not work and you will have a slow leak. I have a thread posted up about my first oil change and it should have the part number for it.
