jonathan R: When should I change the oil after how many miles
Gabe L: Hello Richard, thanks for the cool video. However I have an Eaton style
M62 Blower, it looks similar as urs but the hole is on the side, how do I
know where to fill up? Also, what happens if you over fill the blower?
What happens if you under-fill the blower? Please advise thanks.
Woody Tefft: Thanks for a cool video DIY
It appears as though the filler hole would be as easy to access, with the
engine cover on, as well as off.
Any particular reason for removing it?
Also, instead of using needlenose pliers to prevent losing the filler screw,
try a magnetic pickup tool so keep it secure.
Tony Jones: Great video
funkindaguy1: Great video, Richard. Many youtube how-to videos are shaky and the audio is
terrible but your video was great. I will replace my oil today in my 3800SC
conversion Fiero. You will save me a lot of time and money with this video.
Bob M. Tyranny Destroyer: This is the best way no doubt!!!! Good video!
Cottonwood121: Awesome video, man! Gonna try this for the first time on a friends 03 GTP
this weekend. Your vid makes it look like it'll be a cake-walk. Thanks a
Richard Crocker: it should be fine, theres many people who are totally unaware of the need
to change that oil and go over 100,000 miles without changing it. it just
increases the wear and shortens the overall life of the supercharger if you
wait too long.
outdoorsman310: stupid engine covers!
cellphonecraze: I have a 2001 Buick Regal GS with the same engine, if I just changed the
Supercharger oil at 52,000 miles for the first time, have I done serious
damage by waiting too long?
Richard Crocker: this is a general service oil change just like changing the oil on a car or
changing transmission fluid, you dont drop the transmission and engine
every time you want to change their fluids. IF you do in fact have stuff
built up in the bottom of your supercharger then sure remove it, but if you
keep your oil changed properly there shouldnt be any problem
Richard Crocker: @honchoryanc SHOULD be the same or similar, but there is probably something
about it in a repair guide for your car if not. just look for the same
screw we talk about and show you in the video.
streamline6666: @ashleyshereforyou Supercharger Oil GM Part No. 12345982.
Richard Crocker: @MrShoopthewoop short answer.. they make a kit to convert a gt to a gtp,
there are some differences between them besides just the supercharger.
having said that there are options too.. ill message you a longer answer
with some details.. a buddy of mine had a gt that he wanted to beef up to
be fast as hell
retroelectrical: Thanks for the video. It was the simplest thing I've ever fixed on the
Impala, and I've fixed a lot of thing on that car! The used supercharger
oil smelled like popcorn cheese concentrate. :) Really am amazed at how
much better the supercharger runs now. Too bad most oil change places don't
offer this service; they'll change just about everything else but the
SteveXnycperformance: Remove the oil was a ease, yes. BUT ,How do you remove all the Mallory that
sit at the bottom of the s/c oil case. When the new oil is place into the
contaminated compartment,the rotor gear will wipe up(mix) all the settle
Mallory into the new oil. the new oil will become contaminated instantly.
so why do you perform this service? to waste money and time?. removing the
s/c and its snout will expose solids of Mallory embed itself in to the
casting cavities, clean with Brake Cleaner, and repair.
RYNORICHIE1: IDK either they need to get there crap together...
NicoTheBarber: I have the same super charged motor and have not changed the oil for it...
Currently has 125000 miles on it.... Would the cone have a rattle from that
Richard Crocker: ah wait yeah i forgot the 06 gt did start having a supercharger as gm
decided to make the gt faster and make the gxp the fastest one using a v8..
it uses a eaton supercharger as well so the technique should be the same
Ryan Thornton: If anyone wants to save some money, ZZ Performance sells the oil as well.
It's a 6oz bottle so you only need 1.
Richard Crocker: yeah i actually took some old oil with me one time and tricked some friends
into taking a pretty good whif of the oil and they all almost threw up each
RYNORICHIE1: Just asked GM of Sacramento and they said never fill it to the edge of the
hole,thats way too much...Factory they came with 5 oz in it why put 7oz?
TWCMH51802: @clayboob1 book says every 25 thousand miles
Richard Crocker: just google zzp performance and check their forums and faq section, they
answer MOST questions you might have there, or you can call them, they
arent the best for pcm's and a couple other things but they do a lot of
good work for the most part, ive known a number of people who got their
buildup done by them and everything has been powerful, reliable and pretty
Jeff West: Good video. Im changing mine tomorrow in my monte ss.
gtp1416: is this the same way to change on a 2006 gt super charger?
MrDirectorjay: HE SAID rooster AND NUT
Evan Yoder: @TSGoofy I've already replaced both my wheel bearings. I think it might be
my Rack and Pinion.
MrDirectorjay: @urmombentover BAF
tyson pollard: An* our
Richard Crocker: @Cottonwood121 no problem... when i was trying to find out myself i
searched and searched and had trouble finding anything that was real
specific, but its actually really simple. when i figured out just how easy
it was i was like... wtf... thats it? lol
Richard Crocker: @evan4607 im not 100% positive on this but i havent heard of that causing
any problems. i suggest posting it on a forum in the meantime but ill ask a
friend of mine who works on these cars all the time for you and get back to
Richard Crocker: glad to help.. hope to see some videos of your gtp soon... hit me up when
you post some
Greg Gilbertson: This was the first oil change for my supercharger. After 135,000 miles it
looked like slightly dirty motor oil.
john goodman: how often are you suppose to change the oil in the supercharger??
giantAsFan: Hey I have a 2000 Pontiac bonneville & I need to change the spark plugs but
I CANNOT ACCESS THE REAR SPARKPLUGS/WIRE DUE TO LACK OF ROOM CAN YOU PLEASE
GIVE ME ANY TIPS ON REMOVING THE REAR PLUS/wires
Shawn Doe: since when is a spray bottle 3 dollars at a dollar store? freak you asshole
WookieOrgasm: I got a question, can I put this supercharger on my 97 v6 3800 II camaro?
Because I got a friend willing to give me his.
Richard Crocker: @RYNORICHIE1 idk man im not gonna argue it, everyone here is hearing
different things from the gm dealers, i guess theres no set standard to it,
i just heard it being done this way from the most people and from the local
gm dealer... i guess just do whatever suits ya best or whatever opinion
makes most sense to you since they dont seem to have a standard..lol why
the hell cant they just give us all a straight answer from ALL the techs at
different places. we should all be told the same thing
Evan Yoder: @dunlop64 well I haven't had a problem so far, but the car is a nightmare!!
Pretty much everything has to be replaced except the engine other than the
gaskets. Now I'm having a problem with my ABS or at least I think its the
ABS, sometimes when I start the car the ABS light will come on and the
steering gets really hard. But when I turn the car off and back on the ABS
light is off and steering is back to normal. Don't have a clue what it
Richard Crocker: @MommyBird10 the problem is.. right now all of us could go to 3 different
GM master mechanics, and get 3 different answers each... and all be
different answers from what everyone else got...lol i dont think there
really is a standard, if anyone has a chiltons manual look it up, ill check
my owners manual and see if it says, and we'll just go by the books and
hopefuly those agree. if not then maybe find a happy medium in between? lol
Richard Crocker: hey sorry took so long, been really busy.. getting to the back bank of
spark plugs just requires patience and some tools that give you a longer
reach, your average tools usually wont be long enough unless you got really
small hands, or know some trick to it that i dont know about. we just
pulled my back ones out yesterday and we used basically a long narrow pair
of round tipped pliers to grab the plug wire by the base to pull it out and
a long spark plug socket with basically a joint in it
Richard Crocker: doesnt improve anything simply keeps the car performing properly by keeping
the supercharger internal parts properly lubricated and cooled, just like
normal engine oil, it doesnt boost the performance or anything but if you
ever tried to run your car without it, youd soon find yourself with a
seized or blown engine
Richard Crocker: most of these superchargers would be maintained the same way, no other
maintenance needed on the supercharger itself except check the belt and
stuff every now and then, long as all the mechanical parts are in good
shape it should be good, youll know if a coupler or something is going out
by the sound it makes
clayton edberg: When should you change it when you do a oil change or every other
Richard Crocker: @RYNORICHIE1 weird...cause mine took 1 full bottle and about 3/4 of the
second bottle... you just fill it until its topped off at the edge of the
hole... ive been told in forums that diffferent dealers say different
things tho, some mechanics say dont drain it at all, and just to simply top
it off every now and then... but your supercharger shouldnt be losing any
oil to begin with so yeah.... oil breaks down over time from high temps,
therefore replacing as some techs say made more sense to me.
John Doe: Thanks for the Info..I called a local Buick dealership and they have 6 oz
bottle for $11 so I will pick some up when I replace the
Supercharger..Thanks for all the help..
junior escobar: how often do you have to change it??
MrShoopthewoop: I have a 2002 Grand Prix GT 3800 V6 not supercharged. I was thinking about
buying a supercharger kit for it. Will it work or does the car need to come
MrTwodafloor: Only comment is good video but this oil is NOT available at any Gm- Chevy
dealer. In my area only the Buick guy carries and not open on weekends. So
plan ahead. thanks. by the way anyone know of a substitute oil?
DYAC: My friend's business did extremely well with adwords. He basically pay google to put his promotion ads on varies websites and the conversion rate is really high. I guess it helps since he sells gag/prank gifts and his ads get display on funny autocorrect websites. He wouldn't tell me the exact amount, but I'm estimating it is near the mid 6-figure salary. No risk no rewards I guess.
