If I said something other than sending unit, would you guys be pissed at me?

Seriously now, next oil change because it'* alot less messy if you drain the oil first.

I agree with everyone else. Bought the part and then had Valvoline change it out for me when they did my oil change. probably not a usual service, but it'* easy to get to from underneath and took the guy all of 2 minutes to remove and replace.

Definately sending unit, and I agree with the others, do it during an oil change.
