Car basics: Changing your oil by Wix Filters

Changing your oil in one of the basics that more and more people are starting to do themselves. It's one of the easier service jobs you can do and save some money in the process.

Here's an oil change video from Wix Filters, yes, it's a bit on the dry side, and probably could have been jazzed up a whole lot by a good buddy of mine called Eric The Car Guy.. but following this video can bring you success in accomplishing your goal of keeping your engine oil clean and replacing your old oil filters.

You'd be surprised, as I work in the parts field a great deal of time, that some people actually think just because a certain oil filter may spin on to their specific car, it should work.. right? Absolutely not, check it once and check it twice. It's your car, and while your at it, I always think it's best to use a good quality oil filter, not a $1.99 cheapie, there is a reason that the cheap filter is really that cheap. You get what you pay for, protect your investment.
