You'll need a 27mm socket and a 15mm socket to do the job. If you found this useful, you can watch my vid on YouTube @ jeepnuts311

I think I'm going to stick with MOBIL 1 also, since I've been using it since the late 70's when I started riding Honda 750's with a dry sump oil system. But I'm going to take my 2 free oil changes first then switch. I must have broke mine in well enough because I have 2k on the clock and level is the same as when I took delivery. :)

Chevy offered one (1) free oil change what gives?, thanks guys/gals, I have used Mobil 1 on my Nissan Nismo
over 280K miles worked well, engine survived, everything else fell apart. Chevy is the best thing
currently, they stepped up to the plate. works great.

Look on your window sticker. Somewhere in the first column it should say how many oil change you should get.

I changed the oil in our truck yesterday. I had to get on here and find out what size socket you said to use for the oil filter. Couldn't remember, but I did remember you mentioning it on here. I also had to YouTube to find out where the filter was. I spent 5-10 minutes under the truck looking for it :rolleyes: I finally found it and pulled the filter but I guess I didn't do it slow enough as I spilt a little.

I didn't install my fumoto valve either. I originally got it because I thought the drain plug was blocked by a cross member. It wasn't. The main reason I didn't is because, like you pointed out, it hangs too low. Even if I had a lift, I wouldn't install that valve, the F-107N. I will try and return it and possibly get the regular F-107, which has no nipple, or just not get one at all. I didn't make a mess at all draining the oil from the pan. Aside from dirty fingers, which I imagine is one of their main selling points.
