5 quarts of oil, oil filter, oil filter wrench, oil pan, funnel, a socket set to remove the drain plug, rags, sheet of cardboard. A jack and some jack stands to support the front end of the car safely and recycle the oil at your local mechanic or auto parts store, I pour it back into my 5qt. plastic jug. Search the web for some videos and more help.

....and a portable phone to dial 911 after the quake tips over the jackstands and you are pinned under the car~

What's it like 29.95 at SpeeDee? kinda worth it for avoiding the hassle and the mess~

...and there's taking the old oil in gallon milk containers back to the autoparts store for re-cycling~

...hassle, man.~
