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.
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
Jesus Chaidez: Richard, so how often should this oil be changed? Any idea? Thanks!
2001pontiacta: Just checking, it holds/takes 8oz of this oil?
Carlito1988: Informative, thanks!
Tiko Tico: every how many miles is necessary change supercharge oil thanks
Jorge Guerrero: I have the same car I didn't know how to thanks bro
pinksugi: very smart thank you
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
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
Mike Fifer: Thanks for taking the time to show this Richard. I will use this on my 98
Thanks , Mike
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?
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.
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: Thanks that was oil change needed
Lamar Howard: Thanks, cool video.
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.
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
E Hickman: Thank you
Rob Camargo: Cool video man. About to do this tomorrow.
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.
Tony Jones: Great video
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.
Fucknuts: @ 4:45 Who farted?
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
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
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
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
gtp1416: is this the same way to change on a 2006 gt super charger?
MrDirectorjay: HE SAID rooster AND NUT
Evan Yoder: @TSGoofy I've already replaced both my wheel bearings. I think it might be
my Rack and Pinion.
MrDirectorjay: @urmombentover BAF
tyson pollard: An* our
Richard Crocker: @Cottonwood121 no problem... when i was trying to find out myself i
searched and searched and had trouble finding anything that was real
specific, but its actually really simple. when i figured out just how easy
it was i was like... wtf... thats it? lol
