Amsoil once in year in our 4 cars. But I do have my own little shop and lifts at house. I trust no one but myself to do most anything car related.

Understand the cost for most isn’t even worth doing themselves, getting rid of oil, time, etc.

Quoted from RandomGuyOffCL:

Nice lift!
Do you guys change your own tires? [quoted image]

I would but I'm limited on room and don't do enough to warrant the cost. I've been on and off looking for a few years but finally gave it up as I haven't been able to do heavy labor like I used to. But I do know how to use a machine and balancer!

My wife and sister in law change their own oil at our house but I'm setting it up on the lift so they're cheating. But they both wanted to know how it is done but they're not typical women as they're used to slinging horse stalls, hoof cleaning, and manual labor despite them both working white collar pharma roles.

Like others that do it themselves it's really not much of a savings. It's what many of us see first hand and after the fact of missing heat shields, engine covers, stripped bolts, wrong oil, no oil, bad quality filters, etc!

Yes I remember that. Like you, I have account in town with NAPA for the same reasons: quality, supporting the local “guy”, etc. Fortunately, our local one has people that do know but seeing this is becoming less and less these days.
