We here at Honda of Casper want to give you a quick overview of what’s involved in changing your oil before you schedule your appointment with our service specialists.
How Do We Perform Oil Changes at Honda of Casper?
First, our knowledgeable service technicians gather all of the materials and tools we need, such as oil, an oil filter, and a replacement drain plug washer. Then, when we’re ready to go, we’ll start working through the following steps:
- Check the type and amount of oil needed — We consult your vehicle’s auto guide to ensure we’re giving you the amount of oil your vehicle needs.
- Prepare the vehicle – We make sure that your engine is warm but not hot when we start by running your car and then letting it sit for a bit.
- Locate the oil filter and drain plug — Most cars have a bottom-mounted screw-on filter underneath the car. We jack up the car if necessary to get at the drain plug.
- Drain the oil – We put the drain pan beneath the drain plug and undo the oil filler cap using a wrench, (but not before putting on our gloves).
- Change the oil filter – We make sure to change the oil filter, then…
- Add the new oil — We add your new oil and put the cap back on.
