Oil changes? Usually avg about $35 at dealers and up to $70 if you go to Jiffy Lube, Kwik Car and let them vacuum, top off the others fluids and check your air pressure. A real rip off for all the extra crap. But $35 isn't bad when they do it and provide the oil and filter. I know Mobil 1 at Wallmart is about $25 for 5 gal. Then add filter, labor and disposal. My Honda oil changes were $65 but that was with Decline full synthetic.

Yeah, I saw those. Too much poke. And I'm not going for hellaflush, so camber is not something on my list of things to do. Anyway, rear fenders got rolled today and I dropped another 1/4 inch. Could have gone more and probably will.

I change my own oil and I spend about 25 bucks.

Thinking about doing my own. Be $25 for the Mobile 1 and a couple bucks for the filter.

Walmart has the cheapest Mobile 1 and they also have motor craft filters. It's where I get all my oil from. I have done every oil change on all our cars since I can remember. In fact I can't even remember the last time I had some one else do it
