2013 DIY Oil Change - Is there a how to guide on line?
Hey Guys, thanks for any help on this..
I just changed my oil for the second time since buying my 2013 6 months ago.
Each time I've done it, it's nearly impossible to perform this task without creating a rather large and embarrassing "oil spill" all over your work area. The filter holder is located in the worst possible place to access without spilling oil.
I've discovered you can drain it first from the small plug before removing, and use drop cloths to catch the flood, but **** that doesn't make it easy for the DIY-er.
Any way, this last change, after the engine was drained I sealed everything up, and accessed the oil level menu in preparation for refilling it. It indicated the oil level as full... and "OK" despite being empty.
This made me a bit uneasy, as there is no apparent "dip stick" to check the good old fashioned way. I filled it back up with the standard 7-8 quarts of mobile 1, and it seems to be fine, but
has anyone else experienced this issue? Last time, it said it was empty and rose as i filled it.
Is there a possible hidden dip stick? or a second drain plug i am forgetting?
I've searched for videos on line, and every one i have found is slightly different than the last.
thanks in advance for any advice.
