I tried reaching this thing from the top and bottom. I have access to a full lift and its still hard as hell...and I didnt want to get the oil all over the place if i did happen to get it off...

Whats the easiest and cleanest way possible to get at this thing?!?!?

Also, are '98 supra oil filters ok to use?

has anyone tried that oil pump which pumps your oil out without having to go under your car?

any suggestions on that? does it drain the oil out clean?

The oil pump is not really good for the car because it can't pump out all of the old oil. It's much better if you drain the oil out slowly by waiting a few minutes so that all of the old oil will drip out before adding the new oil.

Best way for me to change the oil, take the oil filter out thru the top. Its tricky, just use a small plastic bag to catch the oil (No mess). Unscrew the bolt holdin the OIL DIPSTICK to get the oil filter out and in. Jack the drivers side up and unscrew the plug. No need to take off the underplastic, it flexes if in the way. Should take about a half hour the first time and 10 min the second time you do it.
