If you’re looking to save money on oil changes, follow these simple steps:

  • Check your owner’s manual for the recommended oil and filter.
  • Gather your necessary tools: a box-end wrench, rubber mallet, filter wrench, and drain pan.
  • Put down a plastic tarp under the vehicle.
  • Jack up the car, position jack stands under it, then lower the car onto the stands.
  • Open the drain plug to allow the old oil to flow out into the oil pan.
  • Take out the oil filter with a filter wrench and install a new one.
  • If needed, replace the gasket on the drain plug. Use the rubber mallet and box-end wrench to tighten it.
  • Add the recommended amount of new oil to the vehicle.
  • Take the vehicle off of the jack stands and you’re good to go!
