Does anyone use this? If so, any comments?

I didn't have it on my GA but my older pontiac, it was good for the summer (when my intake gasket blew and had to do 3 oil changes withing a month) but after one winter (canadian winter) the hose developed a crack and started to leak. If u just wanna leave it on for summer and stick your stock bolt on for winter I'd say it's great other, for all year round i wouldn't bother. Both ways u still have to get on the ground to change the oil. how hard is it to opperate a wrench:P

Its not hard to use a wrench, I was interested in having the hose to try to simplify the job a little. I figure for $12 it wouldn't be a huge waste, but I hadn't heard any comments on it till now.

I put this on my car a while back. I've changed he oil once since then, and it works well. I'm not sure what RamAir means about the hose cracking. I only have the hose attached to the car for a change, the rest of the time its stowed in my toolbox. The part that remains on the car is metal and seems to be pretty hardy so far.

I have it too......I think for the extra $12 it makes it alot easier. Not sure what RamAir is talking about either :confused:

I got one at Pep Boys for about the same price. Waiting for my next oil change to install it.

Thanks guys, I'm going to order one from PFYC with my next order. And I don't really understand what RamAir is talking about either. I understand the hose is not suppose to be on all the time so I'm confused. Is it that cold in Canada?

Try taking the hose off, it comes with a dust cover for the bolt that goes into the pan. You can not be that naive? I have it and it is way better than putting a wrench on the bolt.

Why don't you get one at the auto parts store? It saves on shipping and they come in four sizes. You can be sure you have the correct one.
