Autoblog Maintenance 101: Oil change – Autoblog

I’m sure quite a few of you have changed your own oil at one time or another (and probably quite a few more have not). Eric Bryant at Autoblog has written a stellar write up of the everyday oil change, and gives some very good reasons for doing it yourself. His procedure isn’t just, drain, change filter, fill. He goes more in depth, suggesting other things you should check out while you’re in there. I change my own oil on my BMW and on my wife’s GMC. I love doing it and, like Eric says, it gives you a chance to check things out under the car.
