Oil change question

Yes I know yet another question about oil, but before everyone flames me it's not about which oil or filter to use.. I know what I like and have that covered. My question is after I finish the change is there anyway I can disable the injectors or ignition (other than having to dig out the glovebox to get to the fuses), and just use the starter until the pressure comes up? I've only had this vehicle a short time, this being my second oil change. The first time I didn't like how long the engine ran before the pressure came up. I thought of filling the filter but given the angle wouldn't it be a waste of time? Appreciate any info...

I always fill my filter up. That's time that the engine is getting oil instead of not getting oil.


The amount of time it takes for the pressure to rise isn't going to kill your engine. It's turning your vehicle on 1,000s of times that does.

So, how long are we talking about?

I didn't time it, guess I should've but then again I didn't expect it to take that long. In hindsight it probably wasn't as long as it seemed, I'm thinking 4 - 5 seconds, it was however longer than any other car I've owned. I'll experiment, I'm sure I can pull a fuse for the ECM or the connector for the injectors.

I'm kinda curious how to fill up an oil filter then screw it onto a horizontal mount without dumping most of the oil out? Pretty good trick!

OP you can pull the fuel pump relay in the under hood fuse block and spin it over till you have oil pressure then reinstall it.

Mine is at an agle. Nonetheless I've changed my dads and his is horizontal. You will spill some oil, but most of the oil is absorbed by the filter itself, and won't just fall out.

That time seems normal.

Do you drive your vehicle everyday? Do you let it sit for days at a time? I'm curious as to why you want to go through all the trouble to turn the engine over with having it start? Either way you have the same results. If you really want to achieve this, bump the key over and over.

Once the filter is full, I suspect it never completely drains despite how long the vehicle my set, the oil pressure is almost immediate when starting. I maybe just paranoid but allowing the engine to run waiting for that first fill of the filter after an oil change is just to long for me. I like the idea of pulling the fuel pump relay. I'll try that next time...

Thanks for all the replies!
