How to Change Your Oil in Less Than 30 Minutes
Oil changes are a frequent and dirty reality of vehicle ownership. But just because they must be done doesn’t mean you have to waste money. The average conventional oil change costs around $46 and a synthetic oil change will cost around twice as much. However, changing motor oil at home will save money and time while also allowing you more choice in the correct quality of equipment and care for your vehicle. Luckily motor oil can be changed easily with some basic equipment and simple steps.
Changing oil with Femco drain technology requires no tools and eliminates the risk of stripped threads and spills. As a result, it is a cleaner process and requires even less equipment compared with a conventional oil plug.
Using spill proof Femco quick drain technology simplifies the process, requiring only:
- Jack stands or ramps
- Oil waste drain pan (optional, the oil can be drained directly into a secure container for recycling)
- Spill proof containers for the old oil
- New motor oil (double check the manufacturers specified oil type and weight)
- A new oil filter
