Changing the oil your car is a snap with this free printable checklist.As you might know, I am frugal. I really hate wasting money or spending more than I have to on things. While our family enjoys many conveniences, we do a lot of things for ourselves. That includes car maintenance. I recently reminded my hubby that the oil needed to be changed in our old Suburban. He usually picks up the supplies himself, but this time, he asked me to get them. I wanted to make sure I got the right oil, so I had him order it online from Walmart for me to pick up in store. He picked out Pennzoil High Mileage Motor Oil. Right now many of your favorite Pennzoil oils are on roll-back at Walmart.com. He picked out a 5-quart jug of 10W-30. It was $22.47 on roll-back from $24.97. We reach for Pennzoil Platinum High Mileage because it keeps engines in vehicles with over 75,000 miles running clean and going strong for a long time. Our Suburban has 100,000 more miles than that and we hope there are many more to come.After I did my regular shopping, I went over to the site to store pick up area and quickly got the oil and filter that he purchased online.
While he did the oil change, I took pictures and notes to create a tutorial for you. I have put it together in the form of a free printable. Follow this checklist for directions to change your own oil. Please make sure you refer to your owner’s manual for any specifics, including weight and grade of motor oil for on your vehicle.
