Oil Change

Had my first oil change today. $72.00. 8 qts of Mobil 1. Now I can run 6000 miles before the next one. Guess it all works out in the end. All other cars get 3000 miles. I've heard horror stories about $125.00 oil changes.

72 isn't too bad. Mine ran about 87! It all comes close to averaging out with the longer life of the synthetic stuff.

Had first oil change done this weekend at dealership $76.
They also said that I could bring my own oil instead purchasing through them.

I bought 10 cases Pennzoil Platinum and 6 Mobil1 filters for $288 and 4 gallons of Mobil1 synthetic with Mobil1 Filter special for $120.

Equates to $40.80 an oil change with synthetic and Mobil1 filters.

acdelco filters run like $3 for mine from walmart. I did my research and they're supposed to filter better than the kn oil filters$14. btw acdelco is what came on mine from the factory.

While the oil may be good for 6000 miles i wouldn't go that far with it. It may not be broken down like conventional non synthetic oil but it does get dirty. i would check the color and smell for any burnt smell after 3000 miles. keep the oil clean and fresh and the motor will last a lot longer.

Autozone had a labor day special - 1 gallon jug of Mobil 5000 for $12.97 with free STP filter. Had to buy an extra quart for my V6. Total - $15.97 plus 2 beers to do the actual change!

BTW....Leave the hood up and the engine will crank but not start. I like to pre pressure before I add fire to the cylinder.
