Just a question though, they advertise oil + cheap filter for $19.99, but i can get the same thing from a quick lube for $15-20. Why would anyone waste their time doing it themselves?
I stock up on almost free oil and filters so i do it myself most of the time, but just wondering.
Haha, because quick lube places gives you unwanted bonuses like cross-threading your oil drain bolt when they put it back and leave about 1/4 quart of your old oil in, and if you're un-lucky, you get to keep your oil filter too for the pleasure of paying for all of that and not find out about the cross-threaded drain bolt until it's way to late (until the next oil change).
One of the thing I learned about changing my own diesel motor (lawn garden tractor) oil, which only holds about 1.5 quarts of oil in the oil pan, I leave a good 2 hours to let all the oil drain out. After finishing the oil (and filter) change, the amount of "soot" left in the new oil is dramatically less compared to if I just drain old oil for 10-15 minutes.
You know it's done right, when you do the oil change yourself.
I used one of those coupon and ordered a battery.
One side track story:
When I picked up the battery, I don't have the core (old battery) and got charged $15.
When I bing back the old battery (core), I got a refund of $15. However, looking back on the receipt, I didn't get the refund of the tax they originaly charged on $15 core. I ignored it. But, I know it's about $1 or something, but is this legit?
I once bought an engine at AZO and had the same thing happen. It was $10-12 tax they tried to keep. I only raised h3ll and made them give it back because, when they brought the motor out, they scattered like roaches, and forced me to load the cast iron engine by myself. Luckily, it was on a dock. I haven't been back to that store in 14 years.
