I asked before but i never got a true simple step-by-step guide.. I am done with paying 100$ for an oil change! Please help me out. Idiot proof please.
1.run car for a few minutes,drink beer
2.Raise front and rear so the car is level. refilling the car needs to be level, better to fill with car in the air in case of a leak.
3.remove oil fill cap and dip stick so oil will drain faster.
5. get oil pan in place and remove the oil plug and crush washer.
6.Wait for all the oil to drain,drink beer
7.replace drain plug with new crush washer. dont over tighten..
8.now you can move oil pan under filter and remove that also. wait to drain, drink beer..
9. get oil on your finger and lube the oil seal on the new filter. fill the oil filter up with oil. that way when you start the car oil is already in the system and ready to go, no dry spots..
10.screw on oil filter with hands only.
11.start filling with oil till you hit the full mark on the dip stick. re-install dip stick and oil fill cap and start the car for a minute. if no leaks re-install under tray and lower car.
12.Fill oil again till you reach the full mark again.
13. go drive around for a minute or 2 till the car is all the way warm. check oil level, fill as nessessary.
PS always wait to check dip stick for at least a mintue after you have added oil or when you shut the car off. checking early will give false reading.
