Changing the oil in your car really is best to have done by a professional location. Cost for oil change and new oil filter is usually less than $20, cheaper if you watch for specials. Just what would you do with the old oil you drain out, if you change yourself? Reminder: I always ask if the 'plug' is replaced securely at the drain area; any oil leakage can result in major engine damage. Check owners manual for suggested times for oil changes..usually 3,000 miles.
