well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

Do you?

I don't, but I might be considering it because its almost negative 11 degrees outside..

But here's the thing...by the time I buy the stuff and the filter, then factor in the time it takes to do the task, then compare it to the 20-30 bucks at the local shop, it's not really like saving me that much cash.

What are youse guyses thoughts?

find a place that you can trust as all is well. i know i couple of places in my area where i know some of the guys who work there and i know they will do what they say. i work at a dealer and still hate taking my car to one. so being able to trust a place is a big deal to me.

I dont do it, my driveway sucks major *** to work on cars. I trust my shop, plus I watch them do it to make sure they dont miss anything. I tried changing the oil in my Taurass in my driveway last summer, never again. Such a pain in my ***. Unless I can use a lift then I will pay the extra $3 to have someone else do it.

You only save $5 or so doing it yourself.

Do it if you enjoy doing it. Do it if you don't trust the place you're taking it to. Those are really the only two reasons I can think of to justify doing it yourself.

$5? You guys must have a really cheap shop. If I do it myself, I spend the same to put in Mobil 1 with a Mobil 1 filter as the shop would charge to put in whatever regular crap they use. Plus, I don't want them touching my car unless they have to, last time I had a shop change my oil, they overtightened the oil filter and it took me over an hour to work it off... eff that, I should be able to take it off by hand.
