At 42,000 miles there is no need at all to drop the pan and clean the engine. If the oil had never been changed and that is your concern then I would recommend going to There you can find a repair shop in your area that can do a flush using their chemicals. I have used them and they do an excellent job.

Should you drop the oil pan clean well and reinstall new filter oil etc on a 1987 Corvette with 42K miles?

In most cases, it is not necessary to remove the oil pan to clean it,especially with your low milage. I suggest you warm the engine completely, and then change the oil and filter. I like Castrol, because it has excellent detergent qualities, and outstanding lubrication properties. Keep an eye on your oil, certainly as to level, but also how clean it stays. Perhaps a couple of short road trips will give you an idea how clean your engine is inside. I like to change oil every 90 days or 2000 miles whichever comes first. smoky2

Do you have to hand clean your fish tank if you have a filter?

filters only filter the water they don't clean the walls of the tank or the gravel in your tank. you still need to move rocks and plants to get to the crap left behind that the filter cant get. you should do this when you clean your filter. depending on what sort of fish you have they can clean the tank for you cichlids will definitely clean the gravel for you as they build nests like birds and are always sucking up rocks. you should try to get a catfish as these are bottom feeders and they will stir the water up for you as well. you can get some catfish that will go good with goldfish as well.
