My list o things to do today included change the oil in Tinkerbelle, the name that my sister gave to the Rav-4 when she owned it. (Doesn’t sound manly to me, but what the hey. She gave it to me. You don’t like it? You give me a better Toyota.) Must get oil and a filter… But first: Let’s check & see if there is oil available… And so there is. Is it the proper grade for Tink? Dunno. And there is a wide selection of filters too! Collection, rather than selection: I’d purchased filters for my Toyota Truck at points in historie, and didn’t use them before the little darlin’ bit the dust.
“Will these filters work on my Rav-4?”, I asked the clerk. (tap tap tapity-tap)
“Can I get a refund on these three filters?”
“Yes… let me look at them… Uh, those two have oil on them.” it was where I grabbed those filters and the proper one for Trish’s car and got oil on them before finding the proper filter. Dumbass…. I opened the third one and it was unspoiled.
I got a filter, and a new drain plug for Tinkerbelle although I may have gotten a new plug the first time that I changed oil… but after the truck fiasco, you can’t be too careful with yer crankcase!
