after a stupidly long oil change yesterday I came home very worried and very angry, but as the football was on I thought i'd chill out for the evening. anyways its a new day so its time to tackle this head on.
its the 1st time i've changed the oil on my car personally as a mate has done it in the passed.
removed the sump plug.. easy. wait for oil the drain.. even easier.
try and change the oil filter .. near impossible by hand as it turns out my mate loves to lock tight everything!.. not just a drop either!
anyways thought well i need to get home so i'll have to put some oil in it and change the filter when i have more time.
go to tighten the slump plug (we're talking from finger tight to hand tight) and my heart plumitted .. it came loose again
remove it and its covered in bits of metal .. turns out the guy that did it last buggered the thread up.
this, i assume pretty much means i need a new sump.
as i had to get home, i had to use instant gasket stuff and lock tight
so what i want to ask is
how much am i looking at for a new sump? and can i get it on trade price from vaux?
a very annoyed Will
