Fast 31,

Good Job!

Your video will be very helpful for first time oil changes.

Shouldn't you remove the filler plug first, to allow air to enter as the oil goes out..?

The oil still comes out without removing the filler plug. It would be the same principle as oil comes out of the bottle without opening a cap on the end

Yes ofc it does, was merely thinking as in means of easier/faster kinda thing.

I probably wouldnt have put the drain screw back in until after removing the filter in case some of that oil spilled back into the engine. But otherwise it is fine to remove the drain plug first.

Yeah I had that thought too, at the back of my head.
And I didn't mean that you have to or must open the filler cap first, just that it might be "somewhat" easier perhaps? Was just a thought.

Guys, can the oil drain washer be bought at a hardware store? I know it's just $1.00, but c'mon, I can buy a dozen of them online or at my local hardware store.
