Just changed the oil in the Mazda and the Dodge.

Mazda had small drops forming at the drain plug. Drain plug was finger tight at most. Oil filter (normally white) was brown. Also barely finger tight. It was sealed enough to not blow oil everywhere but loose enough to seep out and leave the oil pan a nice bronze color.

The Dodge...pretty sure both the oil filter and drain plug where put on with 2" impact drivers and the drain plug they used a 13mm instead of 1/2" so now my drain plug is fubared.

Been using these two dealers for the last 3 years once a year for oil changes. Guess time to do the changes myself all year now.

This is why only I have touched Harmony since she rolled off the dealer's lot.

Yeah pissed me off. I typically take it to the dealer once a year for oil changes and any issues that come up (the Mazda still has warranty on it so most everything is covered). Just irritating now that I gotta clean off the whole undercarriage of the motor on it so I can still easily identify any leaks that may arise.

However...I have reduced my hemi tick though. Woot?
