Finally did my own oil change.. fuel mileage should get better!!!

20, 000miles and this is my 3rd oil change. The fuel filter and air filter was filthy. I forgot what my turbo sounded like. it was lazy as hell. Its spooling quick now..

Picked up everything from O'Reillys. $11.99 a gallon for Chevron Delo 15w40. I meant it when I told the dealership that was the last $275 oil change they get out me.

Most of the country is in a deep freeze. Not sure where you are from but I wouldn't be putting no 15W-40 in it. Just my opinion

Wow, for the oil changes at my dealer is 130 something. Now if I get all new filters its in the 275 range but for the normal oil change and tire rotations its no where near that?

I have a 5gallon catch pan but had no idea the plug was coming out like that. Luckily I had it in the right spot. I spilled very little.. scared the crap out of me

That was oil, oil filter, topped off the exhaust fluid, airfilter and I can't remember what else. I need to look for the invoice. That was my last dealedship experience
