I wouldn't. I have access to service history records...and won't buy a private owned vehicle without service records (so if you DIY, you'd better have receipts)...I'd know it had been neglected and would promptly walk away.

And no...they won't take the abuse. You don't see the failures, because you've gotten rid of it. But down the line, someone else has to pay for your laziness.

Yes I don't think I would. I have seen enough engine compartments to last me a life time. And on most of the new stuff all u can see is plastic covers. I don't plan on leasing anymore but It would be a fun test if I do lease one. Ford SUVs did away with the auto tranie Dip stick about 10 years ago as it is a no service item. Many people run trucks on a no drain oil change program and just change the oil filters every 20 to 25 thousand and add a gallon to top it off. That's only about 10% of volume on a 10 gallon capacity. They can run these rigs for 500 thousand to a million miles no problem. Some run a oil analaous, some don't. Oil can run 30 to 50 thousand easy with no thermal or viscosity breakdown or even a filter change. The computer will tell u if anything goes wrong and u need to open the hood to fix the problem. Engines and oils are so good these days they will perform and last way longer then most people realize.

That's where you're wrong. Oil can be tested for viscosity breakdown and foreign substances. It is also the owner's responsibility to prove that proper maintenance was done. Take your leased vehicle in with a seized engine and no record or maintenance and let us know how that works out for you.

My Jeep still has its owner's manual on good old fashioned paper:

Most dealerships can't even change oil without messing something else up. Virtually impossible to tell if and when the engine oil was changed. Total waste of money on a leased vehicle. Just saying. Just like extended warranties. Big money maker for dealers that's why they push the crap so hard. Not for me. I'll keep my money, thank you.

sevenservices if your that lazy feeling... just have someone else change it. And for the price of a 2011, the first oil change should be free at the dealer.

Other than that, you should really consult your owners manual. People are not always right you know... Someone could say to use 6 quarts and your engine only takes 4.5 quarts then your blowing out oil seals.

Sugar, constructive answer!
Peepers, you're enabling this idiot!

1rootman...just go to Walmart. Someone as lazy as you deserves whatever happens to you there
01-21-2011 09:14 AM
sugaror So, I just changed my oil for the first time on my 2010 JK. I went with synthetic, not the blend. Be careful when you take off the oil filter because the mopar gasket tends to stay on and when you put the new filter on it will have a gasket too. 2 gaskets are not a good thing! You will need 6 quarts. I have no idea if its the same filter size.
Your owners manual is a DVD and it might play in your computer depending on what kind of drive you have. Good luck! Hopefully its not as cold where you are because its all of 4degrees in Chicago today.

On a more constructive note, yes, as Jimbo said, wrong way to start a thread. If you walked up to someone in the street and said, "I'm too lazy to look up at the sign... can you tell me what street corner we're on?" I think you'd get equally nasty looks.
01-21-2011 08:24 AM
JIMBOX heh Heh, if you're lazy, I'm surprised you'll change your own oil !!

Look for deas in the news paper-oil chgs $19.95--Walmart/Peps Boys/Chevron/Jeep dealers ()

That'll fix ya

JIMBO

PS you'll get the best jeep info on this forum--Just don't start your Thread with that "I'm lazy"-WRONG TECHNIQUE

1) I like to use olive oil or vegitable oil, its more environmentally friendly, just stay away from the penut oil, its more for taste than anything. Pam can work on short notice.

2) Go to one of those places that sells food in really big packaging and buy about 4 gallons of oil, dont want to run out, and just fill till it comes out the top.

3) No idea.

4) I'm all for the Latex (LX?) filters. Good enough for the bedroom, good enough for my jeep.

If your lazy enough to ask here, your lazy enough to ask at the parts store like I do, they will tell you which filter to get and how much oil you need. If your really lucky they might even go get it for you!
