Wow. What the hell has the world come to man...

Hundreds of dollars in repairs that aren't even done. They were cheated and ripped off at 5 out of 9 Jiffy Lube's.

Gah now I'm paranoid about taking my car somewhere to get it fixed. :pinch:

Good thing I don't go to Jiffy Lube... those asses.

Yeah, me, too.

Good thing we don't live in a Socialist country.

We might still be allowed to save the cost of an oil change, but we'd probably be charged a mandatory "use fee" to allow the government to wet it's beak in the reclaimation money-pit.

Or maybe they make you pay someone to change oil, too.

I've been told I'm being irretrievably contrary and ornery tonight.

I think that's a lie.

Unless of course you are blessed with the mother of all sod-it bolts attaching the oil filter plate to the sump (don't you just love nob heads and their use of red locktite which is designed to hold things in permanently and not for fucking oil filter cover plates ffs :angry: )....then its grinder jobbie (after the heat and big hammer job failed)....and a new plate....

Yep that's me rolling project...happy joy :dry:

Although they are very pretty sparks flying off me grinder......:lol:

I've always serviced my cars myself. Honestly, it's so simple that once you've done it the first time you wonder who'd pay Kwik-Fit to put cheap shit in and overcharge for the privelege.

or you buy a used car, go to change the oil and find that whoever changed the oil last used the wrong size wrench and rounded the plug to a perfect circle so that there is no way to grip the head. that makes things fun.

If you don't know how to change oil in DIY way which is suppose to be very basic. you may opt to go to Rapide or usually the gasoline stations, they usually do change oil there. just watch and you'll find it real easy. If you're confident enough next time do it yourself and you'll save lots of money. ^_^

I take mine to the local garage to get done. It works out about the same for me at about £30.

while if i did it
£20 for oil
£6 for the new filter

plus the extra hassle of actually having to dispose of the old oil down the dumps.

Whereas they're not putting in 20 oil, they're likely using 5 and a 2 filter.

Think about it - what company can afford to only make 10 for a half hour slot?

This whole thread has made me think I ought to change my oil.

Wtf? Changing oil?

I thought that you just topped it up when it went a bit low and only if you had a really old, shit car did it ever need a total change.

Ah.

Should have bought a BSA or Triumph; maybe a Norton.

My very first road bike was a Dunstall Norton 810.

If I'd known what I had, I'd have kept it.
