If you've never done it before, it can seem like an impossible task. But after you've done it once, it's easy. :) Just a hurdle to get over, same as with anything else. Were you born knowing how to change oil?

And, as for what oil to use, search this forum using the word "synthetic" and/or many common oil brand names (spelled correctly, of course).

The topic comes up a lot. ;)

yeah i love changing my own oil cause u can buy the best oil and filter for your car and still spend less than getting a shop to do it, but sometimes im just too lazy and a shop also inspects other stuff too like air pressure, air filter, fuel filter, transmission fluid, and tops off your fluids

by the way i went to the oil change place today and i needed to get my fuel filter replaced, they wanted 50 dollars to replace it. i was like f*** that cause u can just go to autozone and pick one up for 10 dollars. is there anything why it would cost me 50 dollars to get my fuel filter changed?

Well I know on my B13 the fuel filter is in a nice easy location by the master cylindar, but on my old 86' Buick Somerset, it was a pain in the ass to get to, and probably took me over an hour to do(I admit I am not the best mechanic around), but I don't know where it is at on a 1.8L. But even on my B13, the hose was stuck to the nipples of the fuel filter, and so I had to just replace both the fuel lines going to it, so even still it was kind of a pain. Since you are doing it yourself, I recommend leaving about 6 inches of slack on the fuel line, so the next time you replace it, you can just cut the old one out, and put the new one in(if you need to replace the fuel line that is). Oh and the part they get probably "costs" around 15-20, plus for half an hour of work at 50 bucks an hour, taxes, and all their other BS costs, theres were you get your $50 bucks.

eh, its too easy to destroy a motor if you screw this up....the website is good, but I recomend having someone who's changed oil before (on any car) to help you your first time.

I'd volenteer, but you have to drive out here :)
