remember to turn the engine over to fill and prime the oilfilter before final top-up and measure. if it requires say 4.5 ltrs[example], put 3.5 in and turn engine over[remove coil lead]. this will prime filter. then continue to top-up. do not overfill. and do not overtighten the sump plug. you will be amazed how many people get it wrong.:)

So you tried to twist from the passenger side wheel to the driver side wheel?

:D took it to the local garage and the guy got a 2 foot long poll on the end of his wrench to undo it.... pissed myself the first thime tho he came out with a tiny little wrench expecting to undo it.
