I just got my oil changed and was shocked by the bill. What happened to a $20 oil change? So I was wondering, how hard/messy would it be to change your own oil? Would it be worth trying? Looking at some of the people who I saw there, it doesn't seem too complicated Besides, it only took them 10 minutes. The only thing that I think could make it tough is not being able to lift the car like they do. It doesn't seem like it would require many tools. I'm not that experienced with cars, but I am able to do technical and mechanical things. So is it worth it to change my own oil?
