When I move the battery to the front passenger bin I'll go ahead and do this oil change thingy.

The odd clear part is the lower half of the funnel of which I show the packaging.

That part replaces the oil fill cap on the engine and locks on exactly the same as Ford original equipment cap.

The pipe is stainless steel radiator hose. It comes with very fancy inserts to,adapt,to,the clear piece and the filler head.

Drill a hole under the passenger mirror, install that locking water cap, and you can fill oil from outside the vehicle without even opening the hood.

All of this came from Amazon (except the idea)


I LOVE my garage pvc interlocking, no glue, floor.

For some reason I thought you already did the oil mod. Hmmm maybe someone else
