    I did the first oil change on my '10 since I've owned it. I bought it back in November and just this past week, it crossed the 5K mile mark since then. It was pretty easy to do; lots of clearance underneath...especially compared to my Mustang GT that I have to use RaceRamps for just to get underneath it.

    When I initially looked underneath the Expy, I noticed a little "chute" below the oil filter and going down in front of the crossmember. I thought that was neat at first, thinking the oil from the filter would drain down that chute and I could put my pan under that. Then I cracked the filter loose...nope. Just dumped straight down onto the driveway! LOL. I slid my catch pan under it quick and now I know better. I'm not crazy about the proximity of the filter to the belt and that lower radiator hose, but oh well. Didn't mess either one up so I just need to be mindful of those.

    And an interesting location for the oil pan drain plug...on the rear. So far, I've only seen the drain plugs on the sides of the pan. I ended up crawling underneath from the passenger side to crack that free and all was good afterwards. I also like that it's the same size as my Mustang's drain plug.

    The one bad thing out of today's oil changes: found out my catch pan has a hole in the bottom corner. :mad:

    Looks like you detailed her up nice. Good work.

    Reminds me of the time I put Armor All on my motorcycle seat.
    THAT was NOT a good thing to do.

    Got inside the timing cover to put in various new oem parts. No broken guides thank God so the oil pan can stay in place.
