I'm thinking you'll wanna watch your oil consumption, etc.
Or did you just spray paint that puppy a nice, tasteful brown in order to tease us into suggesting upper, lower, middle, right and left side filter changes?
I'm not really sure what the black stuff is. It falls off in chunks. I'm thinking it's from the engine spray cleaner they used and it made dirt stick to it. Could be coal...who knows. The rest of the intake is spotless, not a dust. I dunno.....but it's DIRTY
My oil level seems to be fine, even with teh rear main leak. I'm changing fluids today and then again next week just to get it as clean as possible. I'm gonna a little nervous about changing the tranny filter though cuz i'm hearing it's a PITA cuz the dipstick tube it attached to the pan and is hard to get off.
