How to Change Your Oil

Check your owner's manual to find the type of oil your car needs. Then gather your supplies:
  • Oil
  • Appropriate wrenches
  • Funnel
  • Gloves
  • Oil Pan
  • Oil Filter
  • Jack & Jack Stands
The premium temperature of your engine should be warm but not hot. Jack up your car with the jack and jack stands you have accumulated. Find the oil filter and drain plug, and put the pan underneath. Remove the drain plug and let the old oil drain, then put the plug back. Unscrew the old filter, wipe away old oil, add the new oil, and insert the new filter. Run the car for 30 seconds to watch for leaks, and bring your car down from the jacks. Check the oil level with the dipstick. You are finished with your first oil change!
