      Well, I watched the Maintenance Minder oil life indicator tick over to 0% and the little orange wrench come on. Weekend barbecue with friends canceled, and one oil change, etc., coming right up. View attachment 152893
      My Maintenance Minder was legitimately reset to 100% Oil Life today, just in time for church. Went with the Canadian Tire Motomaster/Shell full synth oil I had bought on sale this time instead of my usual Mobil 1 full synth, retorqued the 17mm drain bolt to the spec 29 ft-lb with a brand spanking new ~14mm replacement crush washer, and of course changed the oil filter (Fram Ultra Synthetic, hand-tight + ¾ of a complete ugga dugga), since after you take a shower you don't want to keep the same underwear on. Speaking of which :), I could've used a shop rag, though, because it was a little messier than it could have been (thinking Fumoto), but there's something vicariously soul-soothing about anointing myself in non-sacramental oil while cleansing my engine of its iniquities.

      Barbecue moved to Monday, when it should not only be a tad warmer, but since it's Election Day in Canada, everyone is supposed to get at least four hours off from work. Look forward to getting together, enjoying good food, and shooting the breeze about anything except politics.

      it was clearly leaking from drain plug.
      Although you can get away with flipping it over in a pinch, and there are some who don't even bother, you can get away with reusing the crush washer for just so long.

      Why not plan ahead and treat yourself to some new ones by ordering them now, while you think of it? :)

      At that price, you can even afford to have some roll away from you into the lawn, never to be found (until your mower does someday). :)

      Hey, now that you're ordering those, get oil and VTM-4 crush washers too, before that slips your mins as well.
