Changing my own oil was not too difficult in the end. The most difficult part was finding my oil filter believe it or not. It’s hidden behind a mud guard that is supposed to be screwed in by about 12 bolts. But over the years there seems to be only about half of them left. I even broke one myself so now there’s even fewer. The main trick is the latex doctor-like gloves. Oh, and next time I’d like one of those rolling under car creepers.
