I just did my first oil change last week while watching this my car had exactly 184000 miles when i changed the oil and it was nasty
Of course the previous owner was an idiot and hadnt changed the oil for 20000 miles im lucky there wasnt major engine damage
I've been binging your videos over the past couple weeks and it's made me feel really motivated to work on my car, even though there's nothing my car needed done (not like im gonna install a performance exhaust or coilovers in a honda civic hahah). When my oil change warning came up in my car, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. So I did! Got the oil, got some ramps and replaced my own oil for the first time! This was after years and years and years of my parents taking their cars to Jiffy Lube for every single oil change and it was so satisfying and really quite amazing seeing how easy it is to do at home.
So thank you so much! The effort you put in your videos is incredible and you deserve to be so much more popular than the "vloggers" who somehow dominate youtube nowadays. I hope you get to see this.
Almost 3 years old and this video still comes in handy. I put in almost 4 qts of a full synthetic and a top of the line Purolator Boss filter for under $30. I don't think there's a Jiffy Lube on the planet that could beat that deal! I got lucky in that the ONE wrench I own was the perfect fit for the oil drain plug, and the oil filter was removable by hand.
A question: Where do you find new copper crush washers? I was able to find drain plugs that come with a new washer, but no washers just by themselves (and hopefully a little cheaper).
Finally, a helpful tip for my fellow viewers: You can take your used motor oil to most parts stores (AutoZone, O'Reillys, Advance Auto, etc.) to recycle for free. For a long time the biggest thing stopping me from doing my own oil changes was not knowing where to take my used oil. Save the container(s) your new oil came in to pour the used oil into. It makes transporting the stuff far easier.
Anyways, thanks as always for the tips, tricks, and helpful video guides!
Wow fantastic, this a one of great video for car DIY fresh oil change and oil filter change procedures, very good video a straight forward explanation, so that every body can understand on how to do it. Thanks a lot for the upload.
hey Chris! i hope you can answer me this question, i own a grand marquis 1997 - engine specs = 4.6l SFI OHC V8. The guy in the grease monkey shop changed me the oil and filter, also the fuel filter. He told me after to start up the engine but it stalled and rattled for 15 seconds (i assume due a lack of fuel pressure) , then after 20 , 21 seconds i hear some loud metal sound , then two ''ping'' and then a 3 ''ping sound'', (like a hammer hitting metal sound), then after 24 seconds the fuel pressure and oil restored to normal. But now i think that it was negligent that the guy at grease monkey shop let me have the engine on for that amount of time without fuel nor oil pressure rattling or shaking like crazy, i am so angry and i don't know if i make damage to the engine, what would you suggest?😧, My car has 155 800 km and i've never changed the timing chain by the way just the band, i assume i urgently need to do so right?, thank you! , i am such a noob in mechanical issues , i am starting to learn.
RAYMOND 21411 u never wanna go that long between oil changes...many newer cars burn oil so u have less and less oil over time and u also wanna remove any engine particles that wear over time and u dont want em running through the engine
I have a question regards inspecting my oil on my car. My car dosent have the "dots" on the mesurment instrument, it only has a mark that is titled "safe". I don't know if I need to add oil or not as, I understand "safe" as "ok, but not ideal."
I have a Volkswagen Routan 2012 3.6L if that helps.
*what happend witn my car*
Mercury Sable 2002 24V
The RPM Goes Up a lot when im driving normal, Example, im going on 2nd change when i speed up the RPM Goes up and the car doesnt Speed up, after like 1 or 2 seconds the RPM Goes down and the car Speed Up Normal, idk if i explained, Im bad with english
Chris fix im new to you're channel im 15 and i noticed you got 5 qt of oil it need's 4 the way i learned to change oil is to drain it and then run some new oil through to flush it all out and then fill it up you had 1 extra qt of oil... also keep it up. ;)
IMPORTANT: Oil Capacity Data is for A COMPLETELY DRY, EMPTY ENGINE.
THUS, When changing the oil in a car that is being regularly used, NOTE:
Even after complete draining, there will STILL be oil left in the engine galleries and passages.
Sometimes as much as a Quart.
Overfilling is NOT good. So I suggest filling less than you need to (by about a quart),
Wait at least 15 minutes, and then check the deep stick.

Ugh I just got my oil changed yesterday. And I’m itching to try this out lol. Guess I’ll do it in 3 months. I am 29 and know NOTHING about cars. Literally nothing. And this video gave me so much hope lol
How are you supposed to flush your old oil out properly without heating up the engine? It makes no sense to drop the oil cold, you want it hot so the thicker crap comes out, I've worked with many mechanics/fitters and they would also dis-agree, bad advice for newcomers.
Hollow Dollo go to any garage and ask them, do you drop oil cold or hot, if they have any clue how to do their job they will tell you it needs dropping hot, otherwise it's bad advice and it's the wrong way to do it..
Thanks for the video. Believe it or not, I’ve never changed the oil in my car, even though I’ve done quite a few other things, such as bleed the brakes, change brake pads, replace the alternator, master cylinder, removed the abs control module to have it checked, and other things.
This reminds me in 2016 my family went out for food and our oil light was on and my dad told my mum to fill it up and my mum used old oil and over filled it to and while driving to school the engine made a bang and smoke came out
ChrisFix it was about 122℉, because I only have half hour to work on my car. I didn’t wait for the car to completely cool. And I got oil all over my shirt when I removed the filter. I wish I had watch your video by that time. I’m following your video about removing rust now. I’m planning to remove rust today, and get the paint job done in the weekend! Thank you so much for making these great videos!
Oil filter too tight to remove by hand and you have no special tools to remove it? Just grab a screwdriver, a hammer and pierce that sucker with the screwdriver, it will become a nice handle so you can loosen that sucker.
Just make sure no clients are looking while you do it...
Chris I recently did something that almost caused me an engine! Fortunately it was just bent valves! It is ending up costing me over $3500 for repair! Unfortunately being disabled I’m not able to do this work. . What I did was add a cleaner to hopefully get rid of the tick! My mechanic said that the tick was probably the tensioner on the chain. When I did this it caused the spring mechanism behind my tensioner to relax and didn’t pump back up and jumped the sprocket! Would you please do an episode on. Something like this to warn some of your followers to beware of these things! Most appreciative a loyal follower!
This was my & my partner's ultimate guide several months ago when the first time we've change the oil & oil filter of our toyota corolla altis manual 1.6J 2002.
We do appreciate this much Chris thanks, cool & well all explained. =]
