Default Change oil

I changed mine about a week ago and it didn't even cross my mind to post up a How-To thread on it. Anyone wanna throw one up for those members that are tired of getting screwed by the dealership?? If not I'll post one up in 6k miles.

Sure why not. I think it would be helpful. I know I save at least $10 by doing it myself.

first run your truck for about 10 mins to get the oil warm and able to flow better.

raise your truck and get a drip pan, to catch the oil...

remove the plug in your oil pan as shown here...
Click the image to open in full size.

then let it all drain out, preferably into a strainer to check for excessive metal fragments for signs of wear

then plug it up, move to the oil filter and remove it with the drain pan again. when installing the new one, take some old oil and lube up the gasket, never is it a good idea to install a dry gasket on a oil filter.
Click the image to open in full size.

install your filter to a turn past hand tight.

fill your engine with synthentic oil as required to the manufacturer's capacities, 6/7 quarts depending on year and size of motor.

Click the image to open in full size.

check for leaks over the next two days....and thats about it...
