Did this video help you?

Robert Weekes: What a clever method, probably 50X faster than using a syringe!!

Marquel Johnson: I have a 2005 gtp comp g and I can't get the screw off looks rusty too.

jynxycats: Fun fact, the used oil smells of death and rotten bird guts. Do NOT get any of it on your clothes, as a warning lol.

Anthony Burgwald: I was looking into buying a 97 Gtp. I know very little about supercharged engines.. I was wondering if you could tell me how often I should do this? When the regular oil is changed in the vehicle? Or is this the oil changed. I'm unsure if there is a separate container of oil just for the supercharger. This video is all new knowledge to me, dumb question maybe. If you don't mind I'd definitely appreciate an answer. 

Paul Raffel Jr: Just changed the supercharger oil in my 97 Buick Regal GS and it took a T30 bit not a T27. Thinking this should probably be done ever 50,000 miles or so.

Joe Kelley: Thanks for the great info. I asked a local lube shop if there was oil i needed to buy for that same engine and they were dumbfounded.. im sure they would of charged me an arm and a leg for something they had no idea how to do lol. Thank you for this great video

EDDIE RAY: this is why isolated nerds should not be allowed to make videos. What a goof with a bunch of weird comments. Buy a suction pump Forrest. "Catastrophic failure" really , really, it does not have 4 gallons of nitro a minute going through it.

Carlito1988: Informative, thanks!

Avaholic1977: Awesome video man! I had a dealership wanting to charge $200-$300 for this! Thanks so much for helping me save some $$$!

manny alvarez: Hi Richard I have a 2000 gtp supercharged Daytona edition and is displaying LOW% I know that is not the windshield washing fluid what that can be?

Jesus Chaidez: Richard, so how often should this oil be changed? Any idea? Thanks!

pinksugi: very smart thank you

2001pontiacta: Just checking, it holds/takes 8oz of this oil?

Jorge Guerrero: I have the same car I didn't know how to thanks bro

Tiko Tico: every how many miles is necessary change supercharge oil thanks

Donny Olson: So I followed your instructions, and being a perfectionist I'm not happy with the color. It is an improvement going from stinky black to less stinky yellow. Could I flush out the inside compartment with acetone? That is... first, remove the oil; second, pour in acetone; third, remove acetone; fourth, let remaining acetone evaporate COMPLETELY; fifth, pour in new supercharger oil? Otherwise, I could remove the serpentine belts, remove the alternator, drain the supercharger oil, and then remove the nose cone in order to physically wipe down the inside, BUT... then I have to put it back together and risk creating a leak with the supercharger oil. There must be an easier way.

manny alvarez: Thanks that was oil change needed 

Mike Fifer: Thanks for taking the time to show this Richard. I will use this on my 98 Riviera. Thanks , Mike

redbuick: I had a "ase", professional tell me when I first got my 98 regal that there was no oil to change.shame YouTube is more useful than so called pros.

E Hickman: Thank you

Lamar Howard: Thanks, cool video.

Rob Camargo: Cool video man. About to do this tomorrow. 

De19thKingJulion: Looks to be the same engine that Holden used in their RWD commodore supercharged over here in Australia about 10 years ago

Rob Camargo: Cool video man. About to do this tomorrow. 

giannella01: Is it the same process on a 97 GTP. It's knocking and a mechanic told me 1K to fix/replace. Other than that knocking this car runs great. 

Gabe L: Hello Richard, thanks for the cool video. However I have an Eaton style M62 Blower, it looks similar as urs but the hole is on the side, how do I know where to fill up? Also, what happens if you over fill the blower? What happens if you under-fill the blower? Please advise thanks.

Woody Tefft: Thanks for a cool video DIY It appears as though the filler hole would be as easy to access, with the engine cover on, as well as off. Any particular reason for removing it? Also, instead of using needlenose pliers to prevent losing the filler screw, try a magnetic pickup tool so keep it secure.

Tony Jones: Great video

Fucknuts: @ 4:45 Who farted?

funkindaguy1: Great video, Richard. Many youtube how-to videos are shaky and the audio is terrible but your video was great. I will replace my oil today in my 3800SC conversion Fiero. You will save me a lot of time and money with this video. Thanks again!

jonathan R: When should I change the oil after how many miles 

Bob M. Tyranny Destroyer: This is the best way no doubt!!!! Good video!

Cottonwood121: Awesome video, man! Gonna try this for the first time on a friends 03 GTP this weekend. Your vid makes it look like it'll be a cake-walk. Thanks a lot!!

Richard Crocker: it should be fine, theres many people who are totally unaware of the need to change that oil and go over 100,000 miles without changing it. it just increases the wear and shortens the overall life of the supercharger if you wait too long.

outdoorsman310: stupid engine covers!

cellphonecraze: I have a 2001 Buick Regal GS with the same engine, if I just changed the Supercharger oil at 52,000 miles for the first time, have I done serious damage by waiting too long?

Richard Crocker: this is a general service oil change just like changing the oil on a car or changing transmission fluid, you dont drop the transmission and engine every time you want to change their fluids. IF you do in fact have stuff built up in the bottom of your supercharger then sure remove it, but if you keep your oil changed properly there shouldnt be any problem

Richard Crocker: @honchoryanc SHOULD be the same or similar, but there is probably something about it in a repair guide for your car if not. just look for the same screw we talk about and show you in the video.

streamline6666: @ashleyshereforyou Supercharger Oil GM Part No. 12345982.

Richard Crocker: @MrShoopthewoop short answer.. they make a kit to convert a gt to a gtp, there are some differences between them besides just the supercharger. having said that there are options too.. ill message you a longer answer with some details.. a buddy of mine had a gt that he wanted to beef up to be fast as hell

retroelectrical: Thanks for the video. It was the simplest thing I've ever fixed on the Impala, and I've fixed a lot of thing on that car! The used supercharger oil smelled like popcorn cheese concentrate. :) Really am amazed at how much better the supercharger runs now. Too bad most oil change places don't offer this service; they'll change just about everything else but the supercharger oil.

SteveXnycperformance: Remove the oil was a ease, yes. BUT ,How do you remove all the Mallory that sit at the bottom of the s/c oil case. When the new oil is place into the contaminated compartment,the rotor gear will wipe up(mix) all the settle Mallory into the new oil. the new oil will become contaminated instantly. so why do you perform this service? to waste money and time?. removing the s/c and its snout will expose solids of Mallory embed itself in to the casting cavities, clean with Brake Cleaner, and repair.

RYNORICHIE1: IDK either they need to get there crap together...

NicoVersace: I have the same super charged motor and have not changed the oil for it... Currently has 125000 miles on it.... Would the cone have a rattle from that ?

Richard Crocker: ah wait yeah i forgot the 06 gt did start having a supercharger as gm decided to make the gt faster and make the gxp the fastest one using a v8.. it uses a eaton supercharger as well so the technique should be the same

Ryan Thornton: If anyone wants to save some money, ZZ Performance sells the oil as well. It's a 6oz bottle so you only need 1.

Richard Crocker: yeah i actually took some old oil with me one time and tricked some friends into taking a pretty good whif of the oil and they all almost threw up each time lol

RYNORICHIE1: Just asked GM of Sacramento and they said never fill it to the edge of the hole,thats way too much...Factory they came with 5 oz in it why put 7oz?

Richard Crocker: just google zzp performance and check their forums and faq section, they answer MOST questions you might have there, or you can call them, they arent the best for pcm's and a couple other things but they do a lot of good work for the most part, ive known a number of people who got their buildup done by them and everything has been powerful, reliable and pretty damn good

gtp1416: is this the same way to change on a 2006 gt super charger?
