Basic Services Performed:
1. Oil Change (Steps 3-6)
2. Tire Rotation (Steps 7-9)
3. Tire Pressure (Step10)

Step 1: Purchase Oil and Filter
Look in your vehicle's manual to determine what type of oil and how much to purchase. Purchase the oil at your local auto parts store. While there, you can also ask them what type of oil filter you need for your vehicle.
Step 2: Identify Tools and Materials
1. Car jack
3. Basic wrench
4. Screw driver
5. Pressure gauge
6. Air nozzle
7. Filter wrench
9. Air impact wrench
10. Oil Filter
13. Oil pan (no pictured)
14. Funnel (optional)
Step 3: Warm up and Jack up Vehicle
Start vehicle until engine temperature gauge rises about a quarter of the way. This will allow the oil to drain faster and to get a thick goop out that is bad for the engine.
Find a spot on the frame of the vehicle preferably to jack up the vehicle high enough for you to fit under it while on the creeper.
Step 4: Drain Old Oil
Locate the oil plug. (Manual will describe its location)
Place pan under the plug to catch oil.
Remove oil plug with properly sized wrench.
Once oil has stopped draining, wipe surface clean and put oil plug back in.
Tighten oil plug securely.
