Yeah my dad lets me take it to the shop for a tire rotation and oil change at the same time. Ima get a set of ramps at the flea market Saturday hopefully. It's a pain to always jack my car up and it'll save me some money to do it myself.

Fill it with 4 and a half.. Run the car for a few minutes to let the new oil filter saturate with new oil.. Shut off the car, and take a 5 minute break, check the oil and fill from there.

Easy Peasy.

if the entire life of the car has been using just regular oil no need to change it up so figure out whats been used on it~ wont make any difference going to a synthetic now if its had regular and has a ton of miles~
