Chime in on your oil change preference.
doing it myself gives me time to look over the truck and spend quality time with it:great:
Just going back to doing all my own maintenance. Funny how those jiffy lube guys miss so many grease fittings. Not funny to replace ball joints, idler arms, pitman arms.
Using WIX/Napa filters, Valvoline MaxLife oil.
Same here. Just started back doing my own. Autozone runs monthly specials,5 qt. of synthetic and filter for $25-$29.00 Switching the family to full synthitc.
I do my own oil because I don't trust anybody else touching my truck.
Valvoline maxlife FTW.
i work at a shop so i do my own with all the luxuries hoist oil and filter at cost its the good life
I will be the first to say I take mine to the local mechanic. He is a friend of my family's and plus its not too expensive. I Had a cobalt before so jacking it up to get under it was a hassle so I took it to him. I payed 250 for lifetime oil changes and I only pay another 25 to transfer it to my truck so I can't beat it. It pays for itself overtime.
Twice a year I don't put a lot of miles on.
I do it myself. Every 4000 miles
Definately wont be paying a mechanic 50 bucks to do something so simple
I change my own oil...funny I thought this would be easier after I had my lift put on, but that just means the oil has farther to fall and splashes in the pan all over the place!
gotta change it urself it costs about 17 dollars to do it urself and like 30 to get it done somewhere else and u can look it over and check out everything else but i love working on my truck so thats just me
too add to this. What's the best oil?
Can open, worms everywhere..............
change every 15k w/AMSOIL....
i know how you feel bro; not even that they also treat your car like **** and start saying theres all these little problems wrong with it. Just so you can give them business.
I took my TrailBlazer to the local GM shop a couple of years ago. They had a waiting room overlooking the service bay. Let's just say the lube tech liked to get his money's worth out of the gas pedal. Gave the Service Manager a pretty good grilling. Haven't been back there, either.
I do all mine once a year or longer. My wife's Acadia is every 25K miles and my truck I do not think I will have to change for at least 25 to 50K miles with the by-pass filter installed. My Harley I change in the fall or every 15K miles which I never hit seeing having 4 kids keeps me off it most of the time. All my lawnmowers and such get changed once a year. And yes everything I own runs AMSOIL.
Let me know if anyone need a price on AMSOIL. And remember I am offering a 6 month trial Preferred Customer Membership right now.:great:
AMSOIL,I had to say it! Facts are facts nothing beats AMSOIL.
Use the proven best, AMSOIL
