-snipped complaints about vehicles with out-of-the-way oil filters-
I know the feeling.. my 93 Taurus' oil filter is a pain in the royal.....
at the very bottom near the front, almost directly underneath the radiator,
the car sits so low, you can't slide under it easily, and you sure cant
manuever the oil filter into the proper position, and thats after you do
some contortionism to get the old one out.
I dont have ramps or a lift, and if I jack the front end up, the oil drains
onto some kind of skidplate/splashguard..
The last time I changed oil/filter, I put it up on blocks (jacked up one
side with my 4ton hydraulic floor jack, put two blocks under it, repeated
for other side) gave me close to a foot of work space under it.. that made
it a LOT easier..
