Next time around, you can teach the new guy, cuz it'll be fresh in YOUR mind!

Hey, if you want, I can take a quick pic of it on mine when I get home this morning. I'll be there about 6:30am west coast time.

Hey that would be cool, Its feeling like -8 here right now, so I dare not climb under my hood. I wish I had a garage:( But by following those directions I should be able to find it, a pic would help if you had the time. What temp do you need to do this at? I know alot of procedures need to be done at a comfortable temperature, for the outcome and the benefits of the greese monkey..hehe, Im guessing this one doesnt matter really?!?!?!

Let me know, thanks~!

I'll take that pic in about an hour and get it posted. You want (especially in the winter) the SC to be warm. Not HOT, but warm. You also probably want to use th flush part of the procedure, since you don't know how often this was done in the past. That'* what I did on mine, and it only had 70k miles on it! I'd suggest buying 3 bottles of the oil. You'll use at least two for the flush and fill, and keep one in reserve. Depending on what the oil looks like, you may want to use all 3! Stay tuned for a pic.

First off...**** man, you could eat off that freakin thing...lol! Really puts mine to shame, if I was going to degreese under the hood where do you do it? If I took it to a powerwasher my engine etc would be hot...which im sure would cause some damage, and at home I might be able to do it..but I dont have the pressure washer effect. Any tips on that subject?

Second, with the instruction given by 95BonnevilleSESC that is exactly the hex head thing I found. Im actually excited to do this, I cant really screw it up can I? LOL, well, not sure when im gonna get to do this but if i can do this myself i will and let a mechanic do the things im not able to.

Glad we could help!

As for cleaning the engine, one of your first posts (the one that you introduced your car and family via photos) covered the proceedure pretty well. I use dish soap, warm water, and a plastic bristle brush. There are also chemicals out there that will do the trick, but be careful with the chemicals, some may discolor or adversely affect the plastic in your engine compartment. A standard garden hose will work for rincing (but I suspect that in the wonderful Province of Ontario most people have put away such spring-time accessories), or you may use a large kettle of WARM water. The soap chemically bonds to the grease and engine oil, the brush loosens it, so there is really no need to "power wash" it.

After you are done, run the engine a while to warm it up and evaporate all the water. You don't want ice forming on your engine. Also, do the engine cleaning before you change the SC oil. Just make sure that you remove all dirt, oil, and water from around the oil plug before you open it.

Ive asked so many questions here, ive lost track of the ones ive asked and the ones Ive wanted to ask. Ill have to do a search for the one you refer to.
My mind is going on me already...waaaaaaaaaaaaa...
Anyways, these are some projects I hope to get done soon. Thanks.

So can I go out right now, clean a bit of the engine and rinse with warm water? run car a to evaporate extra water, and I should have no problems if im careful of these other areas you mention? I wouldnt mind picking at it a bit. Its pretty dirty, looks like dust from belts or somthing black and powdery by the wires where you change the SC oil. I got quite dirty last night from it. Just want to triple check this...so i can actually pour water over the parts that I clean....im still very leary on doing this...
