    DeVille oil change

    I'm thinking about doing my own oil changes, and would like to drain the pan while the car is on a set of "rhino ramps". My question is: will the pan/engine drain completely while the car is on the ramps, or does the car need to be level for draining? Thanks in advance to anyone that responds.

    The drain plug is at the rear of the pan so it should drain just fine. Be carefull pulling on the ramps. The cowling is pretty low. I am not able to get mine on my ramps because of it.

    Thanks for the reply, Ranger. FYI, I can drive my 2000 Vette up on the Rhino ramps with no problem. I don't think the DeVille is that low.

    :coolgleam Yes, the plug is at the rear of the pan. FWIW, I've tried Mobil 1 filters once or twice (overkill, I know :rolleyes2 but if I didn't care I wouldn't be here) but they have more than one set of threads cut into them and can be a PITN to install. An AC will spin right on, costs less than half as much too.
