“At Meineke, we want to help you to get on with life. That’s why we’re going to show you how to change your oil.”
HOW TO: Change Your Oil
Change Your Oil
“First, you have to ensure your vehicle is parked on a level surface with the parking brake on. You may need to jack-up your vehicle to get underneath.”
“Open the hood and remove the engine oil dipstick.
Now, locate the oil drain plug and position a container underneath. Carefully remove the plug by hand and allow all old oil to drain out.
Once drained, reinstall the oil drain plug and tighten using a wrench.
“Next, position your container under the oil filter. Remove the oil filter, ensuring that the filter gasket comes off as well, and install your new oil filter.”
“Now under the hood, remove the oil fill cap and pour in the appropriate amount of motor oil with the help of a funnel.
Replace the oil fill cap.”
“Start your car and run at idle while carefully inspecting underneath the vehicle for any visible oil leaks.”
“Shut off the engine and repeat the inspection process.”
“Lower the vehicle to level ground and then install and remove oil dipstick and check for proper oil level. Be sure to dispose of your old oil properly.”
“Or, if you don’t want to get your hands dirty, simply bring your vehicle to Meineke for a standard $24.95 oil change and get on with your life!”
