Hi all. I just acquired a RXC and looking for some guidance on doing an oil change. I haven't removed the rear diffuser yet to see how the dry sump is plumbed. Some questions to begin with:

 

Do you disconnect one of the scavenge lines, remove the pump belt and spin the pump to empty out the system? Or do you suck out the oil tank and drain whatever is in the oil pan?

 

Is there a drain on the sump tank itself?

 

I come from a Stohr, this is a new world to me 🙂

 

Thx!

Arax

You have a different engine than my SR10 but I just went through this process and spoke to some Radical techs about it since the manual was pretty much just directional about the procedure.

For my car, you need to remove both AN fittings going to the sump on the left side.  On the lower right side there are two 15mm drain plugs that also need to be removed.
