      Hey Scotty is it good to fill your new filter up with new oil when replacing the oil and filter?

      I used to work at an oil change shop and always did it myself. Valvoline is the only shop that ever did changes right at least the location I worked at they were really meticulous and didn't bugger up drain plugs and always put on new gaskets. If you aren't 1000% sure of the shop's labor you should probably do it yourself. Or if you do go somewhere at least provide your own oil, watch them pour it in and check your drain plug after the fact to make sure its not finger loose. At that point it might be better to just do it yourself.

    never ever change your oil using a jack. If you don't have enough clearance underneath the vehicle as in a truck or suv, then please use jack stands.

                            Scotty, I just did a "filter" write up. Weight/per say does not matter.....etc...Some have a harder, more weighted outer shell. That has nothing to due with filtration. unless you plan on your oil filter getting hit by a 5lbs of debris, so!!! Please digest and understand… Thxs.

                                Just change your oil every 3k most people I see coming in with blown motors are those that perform high mileage oil changes, mostly due to the fact that you become complacent and you dont check your oil level as much as you should, if you just change it every 3k you'll be fine.

                                    Scotty, what about going to Jiffy Lube and getting their synthetic blend oil? What kind of oil and filter quality would I receive?

                                            Fill the oil filter up first then put it on so you dont have a dry start as bad

                                                Properly checking and changing that oil is more important than the type of oil ( always synthetic? ) you use.

                                                                        • Haley Allison

Because look at the location of the oil caps on the engines, the first example the cap is on the right, the second is on the left. He used the correct oil for each, he just could have explained more in detail in my opinion. I could be wrong though.

                                                                      • Jar Head

Why don’t they do the same thing with the oil drain plug.? If that’s the most important thing you can do to preserve the life of your vehicle it seems like they Include that as just one more thing to keep the oil as clean as possible. Just a thought. Would love to hear what you think about that
