Oil changes, engine lights, windshield wiper fluid, bulb replacement and batteries. There, I just banged out six different quick and easy DIY jobs for your automobile. Dealers and local garages have been making a bloody mint off people since the automobile was created over 100 years ago. Jobs that may look daunting at first, can sometimes be much easier than you think. Hell, for some you may not even need any tools.
Over the next few months Ridelust.com is going to putting up a few things that may help you save a couple of bucks the next time your car is in need of some maintenance. First up… the dreaded oil change. In all honesty changing your own oil really is pretty easy, granted you may get a bit grungy when all is said and done, but do it right and it should take you no more than 25 minutes. Although a bit hokey, the video above is actually pretty entertaining as well as being downright informative. I’d recommend leaving the beer out of the equation until everything is buttoned-up. Then when you’re finished, go inside, hit the couch and celebrate with a cold one… I like Michelob.
