S9 maintenance

Can anybody explain why they made the oil filter impossibleto get to? Any tips on the best way to change it without making a mess?

Leave it sit over night and unscrew it and put new one. It's alot easier then Most of the trucks I see in the shop.

Probably the same designer who made the oil dipstick and placed it where they did

I bought a universal 30" dipstick off eBay that was a flat blade style with the same handle and marked the end of the new one to the marks on the original junk wire dipstick

Not been around the 9 series but I am sure it is about the same as my S88, oil filter doesn't bother me nearly as much as the fuel filters. I don't change my fuel filters till they need changed which means I am in the field and the monitor tells me low fuel pressure or I sense being low on power. Either way, changing them in the field or in the shop there is diesel all over everything including myself. The dip stick isn't handy by any means to get to but my biggest gripe is how do you see the oil level on the yellow plastic? I never know for sure what I have since the oil doesn't stay on the plastic to tell what it is.

Why is something that has been complained about so many times and not a thing has been done to address it.
Maybe Gleanersuper 7 could do the next roadshow on how to change filters without making a mess and how to check the oil.
It would go like this "Hi great Silverfleet in this video we will show you how to check the oil. Where the fu-ks the dipstick, who put that where you couldn't find it. Hmm. Next we pull the dipstick to check the oil. There's no fu-king oil in the engine. What you need blotting paper to see the oil level on the dipstick, what sh-t brain designed this.
Till next time greatsilver fleet.
Sorry GS7 for taking the piss, couldn't help it

Same idiot that put the GM DEF fill under the hood close to the fire wall. Pain in the ass.

I don't have a problem with the dipstick. Other than maybe they could put it on the other side of the motor. But that oil filter is the dumbest thing I've seen. Wouldn't have been so bad until someone showed up for work one day and said "Hey, that's a really great spot for the oil filter to be in, now let's stick an even bigger hydraulic filter in right in front of it complete with mounting bracket to make that oil filter a little more obscure...and to top it off let's run three oil lines through there to fill in absolutely any space left that could have been left to make it even the tiniest bit easy to get to that oil filter and get it out still filled with oil to boot..."
