Default How to change oil?

lay under car find drain plug on engine not trans.undo plug let drain into bucket it holds 5 to 6 qts have it big enough to hold it all now find the filter and undo it it holds at least 1 qt so put something under it and you will get some on your hand it does come off dont worry now reinstall plug install the filter ,,take your finger in the old oil you took out nowjust a finger tip dip it in the oil and put just a little on the rubber gasket on the oil filter before you put it back onto the engine screw it on until it seats itself and 1and a half turns donot over tighten it it will be a bear the next time.. now install your new synthic castrol oil into the engine DO NOT FORGET THIS STEP!!!!!!check the dip stick after 5 qts and starting the engine.let it run a half min or so turn off the engine check the dip stick again and top off turn the engine on let run for 2 to 4 mins look uner the car make sure you dont have any leaks. good luck use synthic oil because its better and saves parts and it runs cleaner also i use castrol because its as good as mobil 1 but only half the price i also use fram filters ther on sale all the time and there are 3 different fram filters each one has a different amount of protection in never hurts to use the best.ATEQ VT55 OBDII TPMS
