    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!

    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:
