Hi

Just did my first DIY Oil Change, Air Filter, and Pollen Filter Change.

Jacking Points. Photo's by Loren. Thxs

Everything was fairly easy. Step By Step Renntech DIY

Used a 10 qt square oil container by Kragens($8). Works excellent w/no mess

My P-996 C4(1999) consumed 9 qts of oil + .25 qts pre-filled in the oil filter housing.

The electronic oil gauge registered max(1 bar below the top). It was mid point on the dip stick.

Pollen Filter Change(Simple).

Air Filter Change. The only problem was the "Mass Air Filter Sensor". Couldn't disconnect the thing. I had the Upper Filter Box resting on the bumper, while the lower section came out smoothly.

DIY took 2 1/2 hrs

Total Cost: $140.00(P-Parts + Mobil 1 0W-40)

Next project Transmission Fluid Change. Any recommendation on purchasing a 17 mm Allen and a 16 mm Triple Square?

Thank's all

PS: How do U remove the Mass Air Flow Sensor?

Depending on the manufacture date of your car you may not need the triple square. It's best to crawl under and have a look before you buy it. Try Sears first for the 17 mm allen wrench if not there try Wiha Professional Hand Tools.
