Jack the front end of the car up, remove oil drain plug and drain oil. Replace oil filter with approved new filter. Factory fill on the Corvette LS-1 engines is Mobil 1 Synthetic oil.

put key in Ignition, start car, drive to oil change place and have them change it for you, I tried to do it and its hard to get to on ramps and drain plug is pointing the wrong way , I take my own Mobil 1 oil and filter pay the $30 for the normal oil change price, they check all fluids you stay clean and it only cost a little more than doing it yourselfs

really? never use ramps !!! jack the car up and use jack stands, NEVER get under a car with just a jack holding it up ! AND NEVER TRUST RAMPS. get yourself a repair manual and learn how to do it the right way !
