I've been changing oil in my own vehicles for years now, and it's just dawned on me that the amount of oil that drains out, including the oil in the filter (all totalling approx. 4 litres) is less than the 5 litres that was in the engine. I drain it while it's hot and even run it for 30 seconds while it's draining into the pan to make sure all the oil is pumped out of all the galleries, shut it off and then wait until it's completely drained.
have the same problem?
