Oil change stickers
« on: Aug 23, 2020, 10:45:22 pm »
Does anyone know if one can get oil change stickers? I'm always forgetting when I did oil changes last... it'd be nice if I had some sort of reminder.

-Thorley header w/heated O2 sensor at collector & all new exhaust
-Impact6 strut bar
-3.9LSD rearend, which is now slipping
-Lots of bodywork and new paint!
-New cd player to cover up all those squeaks and rattles

be careful what you write on them with, I used sharpie and it sun faded completely away. Not sure what is best to use on them maybe ballpoint pen? The k&n filters come with oil change stickers which is pretty nice. Not sure how they are quality wise but I can say the anti drain back valve has not failed yet like it did on my purolator.

Yeah, our vehicle at work had one of the reminders in sharpie and it didn't last long either.

All of my oil filters are OEM. I used to use aftermarket (usually Fram) filters until it caused an issue and ruined my Cadillac engine. Haven't had any problems since then sticking to OEM filters.
