Gear Up 3 Piece Oil Change Kit - Everything you need to get stuck into changing your own oil

Sick of using old baking trays and make-shift funnels when changing the oil in your car? The Gear Up 3 Piece Oil Change Kit comes with everything you need to get stuck into changing your oil in a simple one-stop-shop servicing kit. The handy oil filter wrench with swivel handle is the perfect solution for removing stubborn oil filters. It covers filters with a diameter ranging from 63-76mm which will cover spin-on filters on most popular vehicles. You can also use the oil filter wrench to snug up the new filter to ensure you don't have any annoying leaks and driveway messes. When it comes to dropping out the old oil, put the rusty old baking tray in the bin. This 8L drain pan has plenty of capacity to suit most cars without overflowing. The handy raised peg is ideal for hanging the oil filter on to let the oil drain out before throwing it away. Once you've dropped the old oil out of your sump, re-fit the sump plug and get to filling the engine back up with the 140mm funnel included in the oil change kit. The flexible neck allows you to position the funnel in the oil fill point, no matter how intricate and complicated your engine bay is. This means all the oil goes into the engine and spills are avoided. Spilling oil over the top of your engine can cause annoying stains, smoking when it heats up and can even trick you into thinking you have an oil leak by the time it drips down to the ground. Once you've filled your engine with oil, use the moulded spout on the drain pan to fill the empty oil container with your old oil and dispose of it correctly.
