Please note that I am in no way a mechanics expert but I did learn how to change my motor oil and I did it myself, with the help of my husband and some reading. You will find that the information that I have included is accurate and should help guide the average consumer in changing their motor oil should they choose to do it themselves.
This is my first time changing oil as well as my first time trying to teach anything on here. Your comments are greatly appreciated, if you see I missed anything or have advise for next time let me know. Thanks, and enjoy.
Step 1: Gather your supplies....
You Will Need…
Shop Rags or Old Rags
New Oil Filter
Oil Drain Pan
Oil Filter Wrenches
Appropriate amount of Oil for your vehicle
Ensure you have the correct oil filter and amount/type of oil before starting. You can refer to your vehicles manual to obtain that information. In my case for a 2000 Honda Accord I used a PH 2808 oil filter and 4 ½ quarts 10w30 oil (You can only buy oil by the quart so make sure you buy extra if needed).
