Alrighty, I think I know what I'm doing now. Thanks guys. Found the
plug for the block heater, just gotta run the cord now. The oil filter
looks to be a bit of a pain to get to, but I'd noticed it before, just
wasn't sure that was it. I'd already bought a Wix oil filter for this
change, but I notice you recommend Fleetguard. Any reason you
recommend them over others, and is there any problem using this Wix
this time and getting those ordered for next time.
On those Fleetguards, I'd read this on that site - "At Geno's Garage,
we took time to analyze the filter purchasing quantities of our
customers. Predictably, in a given maintenance interval (i.e. a 30,000
mile period), the oil filter is changed four times, the fuel filter two
times, and the air cleaner is changed once."
That looks to be an oil change every 7,500 miles? Is that where you
typically change yours? I'd been still aiming for 3,000-5,000 miles
for changes. Equals out to a fuel filter change every 15,000, like you
said. And is the fuel filter located inline from the tank? Hopefully
not located in the tank, like on my old '94 with the 360 gas.
Bought a case of six gallons of Rotella-T 15W40, so I'm set there.
If I'm gonna remove the air box to get to the oil filter anyway, I'd
been looking at getting an aircharger kit like this one
(http://www.knfilters.com/search/product.aspx?Prodc-1532 ) from K&N to
put in there, and that would be a good time, I imagine, since I'd have
it out anyway. I'd also seen one from AIRAID, I believe it was. Any
preference of one over the other? I've had good luck with K&N so far,
and figured on sticking with them, but just didn't know if there were
any noticable differences.
Thanks again, guys!
