This is by far the cleanest process and it`s not necessary to lift your car to do this work. With the oil extractor the car engine oil can be suctioned out very easily.
Oil Lubrication

The recommended oil for all Roots` products is ROOTS™ Synthetic Oil which is superior in performance to petroleum based products. It has high oxidation stability, excellent corrosion protection, extremely high film strength and a low coefficient of friction.

The first problem of pouring used cooking oil down the drain is that it is illegal. Dumping oil can lead to hefty fines and possible shutdowns. Pouring oil liquid oil down the drain hardens in the pipes and can create fatbergs. As the oil travels along your pipes, it leaves tough residue that builds up over time.
In addition to their environmental impacts, oil leaks can lead to major damage to your vehicle`s engine, as well as to its radiator and HVAC system. Accumulated oil can degrade the rubber hoses and seals used in these components and cause them to wear out prematurely. Oil leaks are also a fire and safety hazard.
Change The Oil

Using the proper oil-to-gas ratio is important, but if you`re off, it`s better to mix too much oil into your engine than mixing too little oil. Excess oil can produce a smoky exhaust, oil leaking out of the muffler, and sometimes loss of power.
A: The fuel-oil mixture ratio is 40:1. You can obtain this ratio by mixing 3.2 oz. of two cycle air cooled engine oil with one gallon of regular gas. Over a period of time oil will separate from gasoline.
Flow rate = Velocity x Area of cross section. Total capacity required = 884 / 0.8 = 1105 m3/hr = 651 CFM.
Yes, you can absolutely change your oil filter without emptying the oil. The placement of the oil is actually untouched by a filter change. If any oil comes out, it is only what is trapped beyond your anti-drainback gasket inside the filter.

I have a husqvarna 137 chainsaw. The problem is with the bar oil. When the saw runs oil is flowing but where the rubber corner piece which allows the oil to flow out of appears to be just dripping the oil straight out. It looks like it should fill a small reservoir behind the metal plate and the oil then moves upwards where the chains drags the oil through the oil hole on the bar which is moving outwards as in the top chain on the bar. However the chain-brake area is just getting messy with oil splattering all over and the bar not actually getting oiled. I have fitted a new metal plate to see if the corner of the original was not sealing properly but that has not helped. The bar holes are clean. Any suggestions as I can’t see what it could be?
ANSWER : It’s the rubbers. I had the same problem with my 137 and 141. The rubbers shrink over time and the oil never makes it up the channel. The replacement part is one piece and less prone to leaking than the original 2 piece design.
