You can buy one for 99. Put it in the oil filler cap hole and pour in the oil. No harder than pouring a glass of chocolate milk, which means my nine-year-old daughter can accomplish that step.

Yup, ramps for the win. After the oil change, we did a tire rotation which required the jack, but my son has helped me with those since he was four, so that went quickly.
