Well last night I decided I would finally rethread the oil filter drain bolt hole so I globed a bunch of grease on my tap and ran it in there. Didnt' seem to bad but I got some metal in the grease on the way out so I decided that I should remove the engine side cover to be sure that nothing fell in there. Well, I removed it, and not one piece of metal in there anywhere! Arg.. OK thanks for letting me vent, anyone else ever make an "unneeded" repair? Oh well, I just hope I have no leaks.
