Oil Change

Recommended Posts

I just saw an investigative special on NBC 5 in Palm Beach (up in FAU). They say that you don't have to change your oil every 3 months. This was news to me--because even my auto-intelligent cousin says that's right.

 

But they asked a couple of experts--and you don't really have to change your car more than once a year, or once every 10-12,000 miles...

I change mine religiously every 3,000 miles... that's why both vehicles I had are still running with 300,000 and 150,000 miles on them.

 

And don't trust a mechanic to change your oil. There's too many shortcuts he could take.

Seriously, I've never tried it my self, but it seems quite easy...

 

Go under the car, pop open the oil tube, drain the dirty oil, close the chamber.

 

Prop the hood, open the oil tube, set a funnel, and pour oil...

 

Am I right?

You forgot changing the filter. Do that in between cycling out the old and new oil.

 

There's nothing to it, you just need the tools (which aren't many at all) and to have someone experienced to help you the first couple tries.

 

 

 

 

And the car I had that made it 300,000 miles (before I sold it).... American baby. 1982 Ford F-100.

Go figure...I used to have an Explorer...Now I have a Monte Carlo :( And I've crapped it up a good bit...Only 45,000 miles though.

 

Anyway, my dad owned three Goodyear auto shops for about 10 years, and he has never shown me anything about the diagnostics of a car--except how to change a tire...
