Dackelone,

I think you pictures are great! I especially liked the pictures showing the drain plug and the way the oil comes out. My 2006 Grand Vitara (Suzuki SUV) has the same sort of sideways drain plug. I made such a mess the first time I changed my oil, I changed to a different style drain plug. This one is a quarter turn ball valve with a pipe nipple on it I put a piece of clear tubing on so I can direct it right down to the pan. No tools required for the drain plug plus no mess. The recess of the drain plug in the 135 might be a problem but the supplier sells and extension base to help.
