  1. 1. You can Change your oil <ul><li>This should be done every 5,000 miles </li></ul><ul><li>Save yourself money and do it yourself! </li></ul><ul><li>Check your maintenance manual for how many quarts you will need and the type of oil </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>First, go to the auto supply place and get the correct oil and pickup a box of latex glove! There is no reason you need to get your hands dirty! </li></ul><ul><li>Next, place a large pan under the engine of the car… big enough to hold at least 10 quarts </li></ul><ul><li>There is a good chance you will find it easier to get under the car if you can jack up the front </li></ul>
  3. 4. <ul><li>Make certain the engine is not hot or running </li></ul><ul><li>Lie under the car, placing the large pan under the oil drain pan </li></ul><ul><li>Remove oil drain plug, it looks like a little bolt </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>Once you have drained the oil, tighten the drain plug and confirm it is TIGHT! </li></ul><ul><li>Lift the hood of the car and look for the oil cap. </li></ul><ul><li>Place the proper amount of oil with a funnel where you removed the oil cap. Replace cap and tighten, then start the car </li></ul><ul><li>Shut off Engine and return to front of car </li></ul>
  5. 6. While you are looking under the hood <ul><li>Look for the oil dip stick, remove and check for little x’s for marks where oil level is recommended </li></ul><ul><li>Put dipstick back where you found it! </li></ul><ul><li>Look for the cap that says “transmission fluid” </li></ul><ul><li>Twist and pull, check the level of the fluid similar to that of checking oil levels </li></ul><ul><li>Check the fluid in your window shield washer tank, if you don’t have washer fluid to fill, use Water! </li></ul><ul><li>You have the power to save your engine and some money! </li></ul>
  6. 7. Once you have checked the oil, clean everything up, dispose of the used oil at a proper recycling location
  7. 8. Drive like the wind!
  8. 9. What you could do with the money you save! <ul><li>Shop! </li></ul>
