How to change your car’s engine oil

To keep your car running smoothly and to make sure that it lasts for many years, you need to change the engine oil.

Oil is a mixture of different liquids that are used in an engine to lubricate and cool it. Oil circulates throughout the engine, providing a protective layer between metal parts and keeping them from touching, which could cause damage. It also keeps the engine from overheating.

The most common type of oil is called “detergent oil.” Detergent oil is made up of three basic components: (1) base-stock oils, which are light oils with a low viscosity; (2) additives such as detergents, anti-wear agents, and rust inhibitors; and (3) solvents such as gasoline or kerosene.

The most common way to change your car’s engine oil is by using an oil drain pan or by using an automatic pump. You can also use an old milk jug or similar container

The process of changing the engine oil starts by locating the drain plug under the car and removing it with a wrench. After that, you need to loosen the filter housing bolts with a wrench and remove them. The filter housing will now be able to be lifted out from under the car and set aside on an elevated surface like a work bench or table. You’ll then have access to the old filter and can remove it by hand or with pliers, whichever is easiest for you. You’ll also see an old gasket around the edge of this opening which will need to be removed as well before installing a new one if you have one available from your parts store.

Now all you need to do is install your new filter in reverse order, starting with tightening down the bolts on top first before

Changing your car’s engine oil is one of the most important maintenance tasks that you need to do. It’s one of the most basic, yet crucial things that you can do to maintain your car. It is not a difficult process, but it is essential to make sure that you are changing your engine oil at the right intervals.
