    Default How do you take off the engine cover?

    Members don't see this ad
    I am getting ready to do an oil change soon and was curious as to how the engine cover comes off?

    Didn't want to just pull on it until I know exactly how it comes off?

    Also if the cover was left off would that increase the amount of engine noise coming through to the cabin?

    Any negatives to leaving it off?

    I'm assuming you mean the black and silver plastic engine cover that has the H and says V6 on it. You just pull it up, you don't have to be gingerly with it. It's completely cosmetic, and serves zero function, other than to hide the engine. Some of the newer car engine bays look ridiculous.

    Do they think people are going to serve food on it?
    WRONG!

    I am rocking sans cover in my other car, but it's older. The cover on the V6 hides the Lambda that some feel is visually unappealing, one writer called it, "

    The function it serves is to 'prep' us for the day when engines WILL be sealed and we won't be able to do even the simplest of maintenance jobs. Make the engines look sealed up and so forth, so users will be accustomed to seeing it that way. Then rather quietly the day comes when new cars have those covers bolted down for good and the only way to 'get service' is to take it to a shop...yep, that day's a coming.
