change oil myself

Well, I found the DIY on here, so I think I will attempt this when the time comes. Just wondering, does anyone sell an oil change kit or something like that, that comes with everything I need to do the job?

LMAO... A kit?

Have you ever changed oil before? Not being a dick... seriously?

You need a low profile drain pan
Some clean up rags
a filter
a crap ton of oil
a filter wrench will help... the one that goes on the bottom and uses a socket wrench to get off. the factory filter was a bitch to get off on my first change.

Yeah, I saw everything needed in the DIY, but just thought it'd be simple if I could order everything all together. I guess my cable company is wearing off on me; they like to bundle everything

yeah.....buy the KIT first time.....then you will have the ramps (if ya got those), the rags, and tools for the next time.....then from now on you will only need the new oil and filter.

HAVE FUN!!
and don't forget.....once done, get your owners manual out of the glove box and find the maintenance chart/schedule and write in the date, and what you did....even though you did it your self, its a record.

Yeah, it should be fun. I'm not due for a while still, but I saw another thread someone posted about Race Ramps, and that got me thinking if I got those, I'd be able to get under there no prob. Might also come in handy for future mods
