    Once again, all new members should take a look at all of the old polls and give their input!

    WOW, I didn't think that many people would be changing their own oil. That's how I was raised, but now I'm too busy so I just find a good place that I can trust and let them have the repeat business.

    There's only one place i trust with my Silverado, Don Owen Tire and Auto. I can trust em, I don't get price gouged, and i know my truck will keep going for a long long time. Find a mechanic you can trust and stick with em.

    I have used the same shop for most of the 13 years I have had my burb. Its a locally owned fast lube. They don't try to sell you air filters or give you the song and dance about your brake fluid. If you need one they have them but there is no hard sell. I use to do it my self years ago but it just is not worth it to me. I don't save much and then have to take the oil to recycle.

    I have a Preluber on my engine. Installed it shortly after buying my truck new in 1994. It pumps oil through the engine before starting and then again after shut down. Doubles the life of the motor. It has a quick disconnect on one of the stainless steel braided oil lines, so I just put a heater hose over the end, place the other end in a tub and push a momentary switch to pump all 7 quarts out of the sump. Easy. Then just take off the filter and change it.

    I use Amsoil, Mobil 1, synthetic blend or plain old standard dinosaur oil. I usually change the oil every 3000 miles or twice a year, whichever comes first (usually the latter).
