I don't think I care to ever do it again.
Agree ! Same with 2007 Beetle, That battery was hidden! It was good car, really liked that 5 cylinder engine:
'Fuel mileage of a four with the power of a 6 ' I never had to change headlight bulbs, I had bought the German switch that allowed: off, park lights and then headlights on. Then you had to put a piece of black electrical tape between two contacts on a relay under the dash to keep the daytime running lights off. These forums are your friends
oil change was pretty easy, it was a canister filter.
Oil Change on the Dodge Ram is super easy, I use the Fleetguard or Baldwin. I didn't know about the thirty minute drain, that's good info.
I generally let it drain for hours LOL, Now I am not take any crap from my friends who say I take to long to change the oil, half a day is Okay
Have a good one !
