Oil Change and RX Catch Can final review

With summer coming up, everyone is preping their sexy cars for the nice warm pavement. Your car may have been in your garage for the past 6 months, or you've been driving it daily. Whatever the case, it is a good time to do an oil change. With this video, you should feel confident enough in doing it yourself!

This is my third oil change at 5000 miles, and it just gets easier every single time. Seriously you guys, it really is as simple as it looks. There are tons of benefits to maintaining your own car. Number one reason, it saves money. (Unless you screw up and end up causing hundreds of dollars in damage.)

Secondly, once you get to know your car, you also get to learn what it needs, when it needs it.

Well, I've already done a write up about this, AND a video, so there should be no excuses for you NOT to do this.

NOW! The RX Oil Catch Can. As you have all seen with your own eyes, that was a lot of oil caught in the can, and only after 3000 miles! If you don't have one yet, buy one, especially if you own the V6, because apparently the LLT injests tons of oil.

I hear people saying stuff like, "Well, if GM made it that way, then there's nothing wrong and I won't need an oil catch can."

To this, I reply, "You obviously don't know how an internal combustion engine works."

Because of environmental laws, car manufacturers had to re-design their crankcase ventilation system that, in the past, released gases and oils into the atmosphere. Their solution was an enclosed system where the oil is re-routed as part of the intake stream. Therefore, oil in the crankcase is fed back into the intake manifold. This way, the engine 'burns' away that oil in your combustion cycle. However, only two things should be present in the combustion chamber, AIR AND OCTANE! By adding engine oil into the mix, you will LOSE power, and slowly, but surely damage your engine.

Finishing off the RX Oil Catch Can review: It is a really great product! It is well worth the money. Obviously, there are other options out there, and I never had a chance to review them. Therefore I'm biased, sue me.

Eitherway, the important thing is, pick one up today. If not RX, you better hope the one you buy works just as well. But you guys got a first hand view of what the RX Catch Can can do, so all of my cards are on the table.


  1. Very good, thanks,

  2. OOOOOO Thanks for the shout out man! I promise not to let it go to my head :D . Good review, I've been done the Oil Change road a few times now (12000 miles) and it really does get easier the more you do it. I feel a little bad now since I still haven't ordered my Catch Can, though no worries, checking into that today! I've got a few more ideas of things I would like to change or add though they're still in the "should I really do this?" phase. I'll keep you posted!

    Thanks again!

    PS. Where did you get that torque wrench? I'm still using a really old one, it has a needle and gauge lol.

  3. LOL, dude, I was so worried I got your name wrong. I edited it out, but in one of the takes, I was like, "Jeff. Jeff? I think its Jeff? Freezy? Damn it, he has so many names!"

    Anyway, as for the tq wrench, i bought off amazon. Couldn't find anything this good locally.

    Not sure if the link still works.

    Eitherway, don't worry about letting it get to your head ;) It's all good lol.

  4. LOL you'll have to leave that one for the spoof reel man. The link is still working but it looks like they're sold out for now. I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

    Thanks Man
