How to do an oil change at home

Manhattan Change Oil Service
  • First, you have to find the drain plug located underneath your car. A drain plug is a large nut under an oil pan that is found on the bottom engine. If you can’t reach the drain plug, you have to crawl underneath your car. 
  • Use a medium size container to catch the oil under the oil drain plug.
  • Unscrew the oil drain plug and use a rag or paper towel to protect your hands. Make sure to move your hands quickly after draining the oil out of your engine into the container.
  • Remove the cap of the oil filter at the top of the engine and unscrew the oil filter. Use a wrench or your hands in unscrewing the filter, and be careful not to spill because it has oil in it. Remove any fragments of the filter’s rubber seal on your engine.
  • Empty the oil from the filter and use a drain pain.
  • Open your oil bottle and put a little bit in your finger to moisten the gasket on top of the new oil filter. 
  • Replace the old filter with a new one and gently turn it by using your hands until it settles. Turn it again for another three-quarter.
  • Wipe the oil drain plug after draining all the oil out of it.
  • Replace the oil drain plug with an adjustable wrench to tighten it. If you’re using a drain plug gasket, remove the old gasket and replace it with a new one before you replace the plug. 
  • Pour all the oil slowly by using a funnel to give it time to run down adequately. Pour 1 quart of fresh oil into the oil filler hole. Replace the oil filler cap and rerun the engine for 30-60 seconds. Check if there are no leaks in the oil drain plug. 
  • After, turn off the engine and wait for 5 to 19 minutes for the oil to settle into the pan. Repeatedly check the oil level and remove the oil dipstick using a clean lint-free rag. 
  • Slowly add the oil and continuously check the stick after each addition until you reach the full line on it. 
  • Lastly, go for a driving test at about a couple of blocks away and remove the pan under your vehicle. 

Make sure to drive your car for a couple of minutes to warm the oil and then turn it off whenever it is warm. This is to let the oil flow out easier for smooth engine performance.

Doing an oil change on your own is dangerous and make sure you have the proper equipment to lift the car and do the process.
