DIY video: Oil Change

Since I am pretty sure bunch of people will be doing their own oil change. I just found this video on youtube. Pretty sure it will be helpful.

Oh, should mention that it is always safer to use jack stands instead of just the floor jack like the guy in the video.

I just changed my oil. There is no need to jack up the car. There is enough room underneath to do the change the oil and remove the filter. It depends on how big you are . Using only the floor jack without safety backup is a bad idea.

The video is for the front wheel drive. Changing oil on the AWD is much easier. It doesn't have the undercover.

This is a very good DYI video. Kudos for to GRivr for taking the time to post it. Not always easy to film and do the work at the same time. I was happy to watch this. I can't imagine a service tech at a quickie oil lube shop taking the time to remove and install the plastic tray. Likely an owner will end up leaving without all the clips and screws that they came in with. Glad to know the AWD model has different access to the filter.

+1 for the AWD version in this case. I understand that these covers are used to improve undercar aerodynamics, but they can complicate life. I have always done my own oil changes (still do for motorcycle), but etween getting older and a lifetime warranty (as long as service is done at the dealership), I'll stick with dealer oil changes.

One of the design features that I love about recent Subaru Foresters (and perhaps other models) is that the oil filter is on TOP of the engine. What a brilliant idea!

Most European car have oil filter located on top of the engine, We owned 4 Euro cars before switching to Honda. Though there is this downside of changing the oil filter housing gasket and usually a pita.

Thanks for the vid. Gave me the motivation to do an oil change myself for my old car.

Tip for cleanly removing the oil filter: after you loosen it a little, put a red solo cup around it before you spin it off. The cup keeps all the oil from the filter and housing from dripping onto the floor.
