Re: oil change? (lasatoptonline23)

You can go to any mechanic you want, never heard of "special oil". Manual says every 5k, I use 5w-50 Castrol sythetic when I change the oil. You don't need to do it every 3K, just make sure it's done every 5k with a new filter/crush washer.

Re: oil change? (memnuts)

The crush washer is only on the drain plug. The oil filter comes with a black oil seal, make sure when you take out the old filter that it still has it's seal attached to it. If you install the new one filter with two seal your going to make a mess. hhehehe.....my dad did that once, I thought it was hilarious until he made me clean up the drive way.
