Change Your Oil the RIGHT Way!

Oil changes are generally pain. But, changing your oil doesn’t have to be that way, IF you do it right.

This is likely to be the first and only article you’ve ever read that tells you the RIGHT way to change your oil. Now, before all you backyard and certified mechanics get ready to lynch me for accusing you of incorrectly advising your groupies, hear me out. I think you’ll all find this useful.

As is the standard among the hundreds of oil change tutorials that exist on the net, I’m going to provide the basics of what to do, step by step, just in case we’ve got some folks on this site who’ve never happened upon any of the hundreds of other online tutorials that exist out there (that way they won’t have to go searching for one – this is one stop shopping).

However, in addition to the standard outline, I’m going to embellish a bit on a few of the steps and give you some tips that will make the process a heck of a lot easier and less messy, so stick around. You just might hear some things that you’ve never heard before.

Quick Lube Oil Change Volume Shrinking

The most recent National Oil & Lube News report (2010), it was indicated that there was actually a decrease in the number of quick lube operations doing business in the US. The report cites two possible reasons for this stagnation in the quick lube market, one being a poor economy, and the other being an upward trend in the number of auto repair shops, tire installation locations and dealerships offering quick lube service.

Obviously, a lagging economy means that vehicle owners have fewer financial resources available to be able to pay for DIFM (Do It For Me) oil change services. As a result, many vehicle owners are beginning to do more and more of the vehicle maintenance themselves, leading to a growing DIY (Do It Yourself) market. Clearly, that’s bad for business, if you’re a quick lube operation.

Moreover, there are ever increasing numbers of service shops that are now offering QUICK lube service. Many of them have traditionally offered oil changes, but not via the “quick” lube model where they promise to have you out the door in X minutes or less. However, in an effort to secure a larger customer base and increase the available services to those customers, many of these establishments are seeing the need to offer such a service.
