M gets an oil change
It was service time, so up on ramps she goes.
Castrol TWS oil. Porsche guys think your mobil 1 is expensive? You have no idea.
After draining the oil out the bottom, the filter was next. On the bolt holding the cap on, there is an o ring to replace, as well as a aluminum seal ring
Since the filter housing is right there and upright, you can add almost a quart of oil to the housing/filter to reduce oil starvation on startup.
Next up was to clean the VANOS filter. This should definitely be done every oil change. If the filter is in good shape, clean it all out with brake clean and reinstall. This will keep the VANOS unit operating properly….or at least we hope, lol. I have seen some pretty clogged filters in the past.
You can see the filter/screen on the end. This one wasn’t too bad.
All cleaned up and ready for reinstall.
