Extracts from this document...

Introduction

How to change the oil in your car "Slow and steady wins the race," it has been said, and this is true for changing the oil in your car. Careful preparation before a person changes the oil and not rushing is the key to getting the job done correctly. The first step is getting all the supplies for the job. A person will need to get four to five quarts of oil, a new oil filter and wrench, drain pan, and a pair of vise grips. An auto parts store has all the supplies. Second, a person will use the vise grips and the drain pan to drain the old oil. Third, a person will use the oil wrench to change the old oil filter to the new one. ...read more.

After getting all the supplies, the person is ready to change the oil. Second, a person will need to get all the old oil out of the car. Under the car a person will notice a relatively large tank with a bolt protruding from the bottom or side of it. That's the oil tank and holds the old oil. Place the oil pan under the bolt so that when the bolt is taken out the pan catches the oil. Use the pair of vise grips and take out the bolt. The oil will run out into the oil pan, wait till it stops coming out before moving on to next step. After the old oil is all out take the bold and tread it back into oil tank using your vise grips, make sure the person tightens the bolt snug. ...read more.

Conclusion

The cap is located on the top of your engine, usually marked "oil." Check your owner's manual for the proper amount, normally four to five quarts, or ask an auto parts store. The person will need to unscrew the oil cap and just pour all the new oil in. After the person adds all the new oil, screw the cap back on and check the dipstick to assure the proper amount has been added. Check under the car for any leaks, then start the car and check again. Finally, the person needs to dispose of the oil and filter properly. The oil can not be thrown in drains or anywhere else where it is harmful to the environment. Dispose of the oil and filter at the local gas station or auto parts store. The person has just properly changed the oil in there car. Note the mileage on the car and repeat every 3000 miles. ...read more.
