Re: Well I finally did it, changed my oil myself
I put in Mobil1 gold cap (high performance) and either motorcraft of WIX Gold filter and I dont ever think I've saved money. I do, however, retain peace of mind knowing that I have quality lubricant in my engine and not some bottom dollar junk from the bottom shelf. Some will argue, as long as the API rating is LM or whatever the current top end is, than it is fine. I would rather pay the extra and be certain I am getting quality.
Congrats on your first oil change, may it be the first of many.
