Why didn't you flush out with distill water? Old oil with new oil is really bad combination.

I usually go with Fram and use Purolator filters on occasion. Fram filters have a rubber end on them for extra grip, which is awesome if your hands are oily.

Thanks Chris. This was super helpful. I was able to do mu oil change on a 1999 toyota. The filter is upside down and creates a mess when removed. I had to use degreaser and wipe down the area afterwards. Is there a better way of doing this to prevent the oil from the filter go allover. Theres quite a bit of oil in that filter. Thanks

One other thing. Make sure the old gasket is removed and not stuck to the engine block. I did this one time, then had sudden loss of oil pressure in the middle of the night. Come to find out the two gaskets were seated against each other, causing the oil to eventually blow out between them.

I was following along with the viejo and you informed me too late about the oil catch tray and as I was unscrewing the bolt the oil squirted straight into my eye and I now have lost vision in that eye.

I usually don't like 10+ tutorial videos but man, this one was perfect! So informative, detailed and on point! Every step you took was very detailed and done in a peaceful and timely manner. I'm also a beginner myself who doesn't even have a year with his first and only car (I'm 22 btw 🤣😂) and simple things like this are very important to new drivers like me. Some people underestimate them and make fun of it but every single detail matters and I know there are people like me who love learning new things. I have a Honda Civic 2010 and I'm thinking of doing the oil change in a matter of days. Thanks, Chris! I'm also subscribed and watching all of the other interesting videos. Notification bell is all the way on! Greetings from Dominican Republic! 🇩🇴

Hey chrisfix... would you reccommend an engine flush when changing oil brands? Im in a turbo dit any info helps...
Should’ve mentioned how with the old filter you should check to make sure the rubber O ring didn’t stick to the block, I’ve seen it time and time again.

Hi Chris! Love your videos! I have a doubt regarding my car. I stay in India and I own a 2008 model Suzuki Swift (Petrol) car. I have run the car for around 78000kms till date. I have always left my car for service at regular intervals from Suzuki authorised service stations. However, after watching your videos I was going through the past service bills and I observed that at each oil change interval Suzuki service centres have used a 0w30 engine oil in my car, whereas on checking the car manual I found that the recommended oil grade is 20w40 by Suzuki for my car. Now I am really confused as to what to do next? Whether to continue getting oil changed at service centers with 0w30 or go for Shell engine oil which is available in grades of 15w40 and 10w40 in India? Shell does not have a ready 20w40 grade oil in India. Kindly help me on the above.

Hi Chris, I took my car to the mechanic for an oil change and he didn't replace my air filter. I just found out that it was missing yesterday after looking at your video on how to change oil. I drove my car for approximately 7 months. Would this damage my car?

I haven't changed my oil in my car for over two years. BUT... I rarely use the car at all. It's more of a fun toy to have. The oil color, the smell of the oil, and viscosity of it has been the same since. Of course I do start it weekly to keep the battery charge, engine components lubricated, and making sure the brakes don't lock up. One of the reason being that oil technology is so advanced, that it's not like the days you had when your parents and grandparents grew up with the standards they had. Today's engine oil is very well design compared to what it was 50, 30, even 10 years ago. All the chemicals and extra additives that are added to the oil by the factory have been done to make it last longer, to make it not burn, to make it not polite, and not to vaporize has those in the industry think differently on how you change the motor oil in your car. The standards in motor oil are so high, that it also has to meet and/or exceed the stern rules and regulations that is issued by the government. If not, they wouldn't allow them in the market in the first place.

how do i remove the oil if it has too much ?
Ian (12 days ago)
hot oil change is to try to get more of the particulate that ends up settling while the vehicle is idle, has little to do with the flow.

Tip from me: Pour small amounts of oil into the engine so that you don't overfill it by mistake. Check your dipstick and add more oil until your dipstick reading is high.

Hey ChrisFix! I have one question: Does it matter in which angle the car is jacked up or how high? Does it affect how much oil comes out?

Hey Chris, i m gonna change my toyota corolla's engine oil. And I want it to be clean inside the engine as much as possible after I pour the new oil. And I also jacked up the car as left side higher than the right side as the drain plug is on the right end so that the old dirty oil can drain out almost completely. So I haven't started the vehicle for last 3 days to get the old oil sits down good inside the pan along with its dirts. What I m doing is i let it drain out all over night and also the filter is removed and will put the new filter and oil tomorrow. What do u think about it? Better or wrong idea?

The tip my dad tought me when i changed my oil for the first time was to put and egg in the fuel tank 24 hours prior, it helps improve the engine capability and gets rid of all of the gunk from the oil making it easier to change
Mike Kawk (16 days ago)
You have to fill the filter using the outer holes, not the center one. Unfiltered oil can introduce particles and other contaminants to the system with your method.

Wants to buy a quality oil filter. Goes to walmart. THIS IS ONLY A JOKE PLS DONT BE ANGRY THANK YOU

Chrisfix, I prefer 3 jaw ratcheting oil filters with knurled jaws. The knurls are aggressive enough to grip, but it’s the only style 3 jaw I’ve tried that doesn’t break super stuck filters. A quick search on Amazon JC Performance sells them.
