Also, you don't mention what year you have. Our '85 has a straight drain
tube, but later models have a reshaped tube to allow the oil filter to be
removed without swinging the PS pump out of the way. If you have to mess
with the drain tube and yours is a straight variety, this might a good time
to look into replacing the drain tube.
Just a thought.
