    Thanks for that, top tip.

    Owen Developments were under half the price of any of the Australian Turbosmart dealers, and the DHL shipping from the UK was the same price as Couriers Please from the other side of town...

      Would there be any benefit simply just changing the fluid in the pan of a auto, then a week or 2 later dropping the fluid and doing the filter along with new fluid.

        What car are we talking about? On some cars you can easily do a ghetto flush, disconnect the line to the transmission cooler, run some plastic hose into a bucket, start the car, foot on the brake and run thru the gears until the fluid stops.

          Its a 2001 mazda 323, the pan has a sump plug so its easy to drop the fluid

            On a car that old, if the gearbag is functioning fine, I'd just leave it be.

              My method gets about 3x more fluid out than just draining the pan.

                So what is the thought on using oil that's old? I'm talking in the region of ten years plus.
                Got a drum of trans fluid that's been opened.

                  Underbody rubbery coating. What to use for "touchups" and small spots?
                  I figure template + spraycan would be more convenient than brushing POR15?

                    it could have moisture in the opil depending on how empty the drum is, simply take a sample in a clear jar and shake it up, bubbles will go down if water

                      Around 5 years ago my Sister bought a used Toyota certified 2008 Corolla from a Toyota dealership. Within 12 months the engine had sludged and was replaced under warranty although she was still made to contribute to the costs. Since then she has had the car serviced at the same dealership. Now the engine has packed up again due to sludging but its well out of warranty. The dealership is refusing any responsiblity for it. Is this a stiff shit situation or should she try and get something out of them?

                        I am going to do an oil change on the family bus, a CX5 at 90k kms. This is the first oil change I have done. It's always been serviced by Jon Waterhouse at Reliance Rotary.

                        WTF is up with the oil filter? It's tiny. This is the Mazda oil filter compared with the one in my BMW. Is this right or do I need to check if I got the right one?

                          Modern jap stuff usually have small oil filters.

                              I’ve noticed this as well. Is this due to engines being more efficient and/or requiring less oil?
                              The oil filter on the 911 looks like it came off a tiger tank but it also has a lot of oil to filter. But even the old e9 had a decent sized filter

                                smaller oil filters due to less contaminates to filter now in modern EFI engines and tighter tolerances, better quality engineering controls/materials on engine manufacture, quality oils, less oil/fuel contamination and better engine sealing.
                                but also cost, cheaper to make.

                                as long as engine reaches end of warranty period alls good for manufacturer.
