    Oil change on Z20Le*

    First up you will need to Turn on a space heater
    a Jack an a set of Stands
    T45 Socket for Sump Plug
    Oil Pan for old oil
    5L of Oil I used 10w40
    some Blue gloves

    as its a bit Cold out side

    take off the Drivers side wheel nut covers an Crack off the nuts
    jack up front end of the car an put stands under car


    undo oil Filler cap an remove Dip stick

    Use the T45 to remove the Sump plug over the oil drain pan
    leave to drain for about 5 mins then take off the oil filter


    again I left this for 5 mins an went to have a cup of tea

    Filled new oil filter with some Oil an also put oil on the rubber gasket on the new filter
    and refitted it



    I then fitted the new Sump plug


    then I filled the engine with 4.25L of oil

    started the engine for about 20 sec then leave it for about 5 mins an Check the oil with the car on the ground

    jobs a good one
    all in its a 20 min job
    I will edit this in the week with some more pics an reword it as i am off to bed now

    No need to remove the drivers wheel just turn the steering to full right hand lock and you can get in there easy

    I find it easyer to remove the wheel andy as some time's you need to get a strap on it to get it off

    also easyer to clean the oil off the front leg
    Car was also a bit faster after the Oil swap an plugs cleaned up

    I find it a tight squeeze with the wheel off, sod trying with it still fitted

    Good write up mate, does removing the dip stick make any difference, have never bothered to do that?

    it just lets the air of the sump same as taking the oil filler cap off

    its easyer using the pits but faster taking the wheel off I find
