Can You Save Money on Oil Changes?
If you’re going to change your own oil, it’s important to have the right tools and equipment. You’ll need a good quality oil filter wrench and some kind of drain pan or bucket. It does have to be fancy; even a large plastic bowl will do the trick.
How much money can changing your own oil save? The answer depends on how often you do it and whether or not someone else does it for you professionally. For most people with standard vehicles like F150 trucks, it usually works out somewhere between $20-$40 per year.
This is dependent on how often you service your vehicle’s engine with fresh motor oil instead of having someone else do it for you professionally every few thousand miles or so. Ideally, you should check your oil level every time you fill up with fuel. The best way to do this is with a dipstick, which is included in your vehicle’s owner’s manual.
The Ford F150 uses different amounts of oil based on the engine. If you own one of these trucks, it’s important to keep track of how much oil you use so you dont run out and have problems with your vehicle. You should be able to find a list of recommended oil type and weight in your manual as well.
