Less mess oil filter change
#1
Here's a low cost and simple way to prevent the oil mess when changing our oil filters on the 05-up Frontier. I'm sure you are tired of the oil dripping onto the front sway bar and making a mess. I wedged a small funnel beneath the oil drain trough. It's not like Nissan couldn't have made the metal trough a few inches longer in the first place.

No kidding. Same on the Titan. Can you get your filter off with the funnel down there?

Great idea. As far as the filter removal I do it from the side and only use the hole to drain the fluid ALL OVER THE PLACE!! LOL 165

Not any more Thanks Zero!!

I reach in through the right side to remove the filter. It will not interfere with the filter removal.

You're welcome Carlos. I was thinking way too hard about this for a while until I decided to try the small funnel I have lying around in the garage.
