Your Atlanta car dealer, the Southtowne General Motors Superstore wants to teach you something that you probably never thought you’d ever do yourself: Change your own oil. In fact, changing your own oil isn’t really as difficult as you may think. It should take you about 30 minutes if you have all of the right tools and supplies.

Tools Required:

  • Wrench to remove drain plug (box end or socket)
  • Oil filter wrench
  • Oil drain pan
  • Funnel
  • Latex gloves
  • Jack and jack stands or ramps (optional, depends on ground clearance)

Of course you’ll also need oil and a new oil filter. Make sure you purchase the right viscosity for your car. Putting in the wrong oil will damage your engine.

Here is a step by step video from Eric The Car Guy. He shows you exactly what to do, how do do it and how to be safe about it.

More than anything, the basic oil change is a great way to connect with your vehicle and take some control over its maintenance. The time you spend under the hood and under your Atlanta GM affords you an excellent opportunity to look around and see if anything else needs attention. If you find anything else that needs attention, or you just don’t have the confidence to change your own oil, you are always welcome to bring your car into your Atlanta GM Dealer, the Southtowne General Motors Superstore
