  1. Service/Oil Change cost?

    Maserati Ghibli General Discussion
    So sorry if I offended you Geoffrey, but my post did state that the extraction was through the dipstick tube.
  2. Service/Oil Change cost?

    Maserati Ghibli General Discussion
    To be kind: You are completely out of your mind. How does drawing oil from the oil pan up through the dip stick tube possibly expose the valve train to sediments that may have settled in the pan?
  3. Service/Oil Change cost?

    Maserati Ghibli General Discussion
    JMiz, get yourself an oil extractor (about $50 for a good, metal one that operates manually by vacuum pressure), a couple cases of oil (about $8 a quart), and a filter (about $40 including the housing--much less if you just order the element), and a cabin filter (about $30) and do it yourself...
  4. Exhaust Gates

    Engine and Technical Discussion
    Anyone with an F-Type know if the exhaust gates can be rigged open by blocking the vacuum lines as can the Ghibli's?

    "...So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, goodbye I leave and heave a sigh and say goodbye -- Goodbye! I'm glad to go, I cannot tell a lie I flit, I float, I fleetly flee, I fly...." It's gone and I'm gone. Dealer gave me $26K in trade on the F-Type and the peace of mind was worth the bath I...

  9. Oi extraction

    Maserati Ghibli General Discussion
    One of the reasons I chose the manual extractor was the desire to avoid the necessity of having to attach to a battery. Since I intend to use the device for my motorcycle and boat, I needed portability and the absence of a spark anywhere near the bilge (Boom!!!). Of course, motor failure could...
  10. Oi extraction

    Maserati Ghibli General Discussion
    Dr. Ron, measure the amount of oil extracted and you'll see the suction method removes as much as most service techs do by removing the drain plug (most don't let the last vestiges drain before moving on.) The tiny amount of oil missed by the suction tube would not contaminate the 8 qts. of new...
  11. Just added Aluminum Foot Pedals

    Maserati Ghibli General Discussion
    GhibLee, if you want something that will never move or come loose, buy you a roll of Roberts double-sided carpet seam tape. I got mine from Home Depot and this stuff is strongest tape I've ever seen in my life. I used it to secure an outdoor floor covering on my screen porch; it's weatherproof...
  12. Oi extraction

    Maserati Ghibli General Discussion
    Changed my own oil and filter three weeks ago using the Topsider MVP to extract the oil through the dip stick tube. I went with the Topsider because it is metal with a manual pump, not plastic with a small electric motor which may malfunction or wear out. The process was very simple and...
  13. Service Interval Reset Tool

    Do It Yourself (DIY)
    Thanks Anthony, but you're two days too late. I dropped my Ghibli off at the dealers for the carpet recall and asked them to reset the service interval. They charge $50, but at least they are willing to reset it. It's as much the distance as the price, since they are 100 miles from home and...

    Update: Price reduced to $37K. At the dealers as I type to have carpet safety recall and a couple niggling warranty items looked at. Pictures upon request. Hate to let this pristine specimen go to a non-Maserati aficionado by ending up on the dealer used car lot.

  17. Service Interval Reset Tool

    Do It Yourself (DIY)
    Some time ago a forum member offered a device for rent that resets the service interval, but I must have written down the email address incorrectly. Can someone please provide that person's contact info.; my dealer doesn't want to cooperate. Thanks in advance for any assistance.
