How To Do An Oil Change

“The car being worked on in this video is a 2013 Nissan Juke. The steps are pretty much the same though regardless of your own car model. “

1) Either use a car ramp or a jack to lift the car up. If you use a jack, make sure you use some wheel chocks to prevent the car from rolling and always use a jack stand for extra protection.

2) Put some newspaper down to protect the ground from splashing oil. Position your oil pan underneath and then unscrew the plug.

3) Let the oil drain. Eat a cookie.

4) Unscrew the oil filter. Check to make sure the rubber gasket comes off with it.

5) Put in the new oil filter and screw the drain plug back it.

6) Using a funnel to prevent spillage, pour the new oil into the engine. If you’re not sure how much to put in, use the oil dipstick to check.

 7) You’re done! Now just remember to bring your old oil back to be recycled.
