if it was so simple why did you need to ask.

its getting pretty ridiculous that every time you do something to your truck, every minor little maintenance issue, you have to get on here to ask about it. right now you have 2 open threads asking for advice about oil changes and air filters.

if you are that car tarded you need to take your vehicle to a professional and quit while you are ahead.

x2. Learn how to do it first. First time doing some maintenance to your truck, get someone with car knowledge with you so he (she?) can help you through the process and you don't mess up your truck.

Interesting...

I noticed that a little bit ago after he/she last posted. Kept the thoughts to myself. lol. I wonder if someone axed their activeness? He was normal active member when I posted earlier(though I backspaced my post and now it's gone. lol).

What does my advice have to do with being perfect. I am no mechanic by any means, but I sure as hell know how to change my own oil.

The first time I changed the oil filter on my 07 2.3 auto I was flipped... It written in French and why so small? I was able to find one of those Fram Quick-Drain oil pan drain plugs. It drains a bit slow but I don't have the mess like I used to have. Yeah , with all the braineyack on this site you wonder why they even answer us at all. Good Luck with the 2010....one more year and its all over for the Range, its a shame too....great truck.....Great!!!

yea that was true on the old cars...but todays cars you dont have to worry about it until 3000...i work at the local toyota dealer and they are pushing 10,000 mile oil changes now...IMO oil isnt meant to go past 3000
