Also what might be a reason for the oil level to be down a little, I know it was topped up when i bought the car (year and a half ago) and it was down a little when i opened it up and sucked it out, But i see NO signs of any leaks and was told it could be normal because my uncles car went through alot of oil the same way (93 SSEi)


On a side note, Does anyone have a spare cap/plug for the SC oil fill hole, someone mangled the **** out of mine with the wrong size allen key and it took over half an hour to get mine off

Geez, that looks like mud to me! Well, */c oil probably has a different viscocity, thickness, etc. than regular 10w-30, so I'm not going to try and guess, but that sure does look weird...

Petra.. go change your SC oil ... sounds like it'* overdue.

PeterG...my Canadian buddy.. that looks about right, does it smell righteous? If so.. all is well in SC oil land.

Your local dealer should stock the plug.

It'* the same one for the M90 as well.

Make a habit of doing this once a year. In this case, if you didn't perhaps get it all, you might consider another change in the spring.

Or install a nosedrive drain like willwren did.

That'* not a drain that Willwren did.. that'* er uh.. compensation for something...

Having changed my SC oil quite a bit lately..I've found it doesn't stay "clean" very long and yearly changing is the minimum I plan on doing.
