Oil Change Instructions For Jeep Chicks
1) Check to see if used oil container is full. Remember that the last time you changed your oil you dumped the "used" oil in the "new" oil containers and recycled it already.
2) Go to auto parts store and pick up oil & filter. While there, look at hand cleaner and decide that sugar, soap, and water work better than any hand cleaner, plus it exfoliates skin.
3) Park Jeep in driveway so engine can cool.
4) Check WF and make a few posts before changing oil.
5) Grab wrench from your toolbox b/c god only knows where hubby's tools are
6) Place cardboard under Jeep for rock and oil spill protection.
7) Put pan under engine
8) Unscrew drain plug and put on cardboard next to wrench so you know where it is.
9) Stand on bumper and kneel on fender to remove oil filter b/c you are too short reach it from standing on the ground.
10) Apply thin coat of oil to filter gasket and reinstall oil filter.
11) reinstall drain plug.
12) Fill engine w/ oil.
13) Tighten oil filler cap and close hood
14) Dump "used" oil in empty "new" oil containers so that pan is empty for next time.
15) Put tools back in your tool box.
15) Wonder why there is a wrench shaped mark on Miss December's left boob and then decide to draw clothes her. (optional: grumble about how much better she look than you and call her a derogatory name)
16) Log on to WF, find the "What Did You Do For Your Jeep Today?" thread, and post the latest news.

turdhurdler Jack stands to change oil on your Jeep? Mine sits high enough to just crawl under it. My goal is to use a red wagon as a creeper. Everything else on the list is true though.

the last time I took a vehicle of mine to one of those quick lube places, they forgot to put the oil in, they did a helluva job draining it, but not so much on filling it.

Thankfully I noticed it shortly after I left and checked and remedied the situation. It was partly my fault becuase I should have been watching them, but I was on the phone.

APBAinMaine Wow... I was skeptical at first; my wife changed her own oil when we first met. After depositing spittle all over the screen, I have to say thanks for this... wish I could say I've only lived it once!
