    Well HH delivered all my parts last week Air/Fuel/Pollen/Oil Filters + the free coolant so thought I'd make a start on it today. Whilst the oil was draining into the tub I changed the air filter and the pollen filter. I service my car earlier than Honda say the air and pollen filter might have seen 15k miles and the oils done every 5k.

    I think they needed changing! As for the Fuel Filter I'll be doing that in the workshop at work as I don't have a bench vice. I won't be changing the coolant as I only did that last summer so I'll keep the free stuff for a later date.

    For all you DIY people out there if your struggling to find something to drain 6 litres of engine oil into just have a look around the HGV pumps in garages/services and pick up an empty 10L adblue container cut a square hole in it and it works great and best of all its FREE! (Just make sure it's got a cap with it)
