how do i change the oil?

4 Answers


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

i hate people like you... the car is hard to get on the jacks.... are u special??? 1 ramps 2 catch pan 3 plug 4 old filter off, drain 5 new filter on (lubricate gasket) 6 plug back in 7 fill with oil to appropriate level 7 start 8 rev to 2000rpm 10 secondsish 9 recheck level 10 add oil if needed 11 put old oil in the empty containers from new oil 12 save 30 bucks and get some beer 13 watch football...


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 !
