Oil change and plugs

Hi all,

Just a update. Been putting of changing my oil and spark plugs for the last 1000 miles. Attacked it all today was a very easy job. Can't believe I hadn't done it sooner. Car seems to tick over and run smoother. Previous had a bit of a lumpy / uneven idle. May be a placebo but still better.

Would say to any one thinking of doing it themselves its a very easy job. Next time I reckon it will only take half the time. Spent a while being really carefull pulling out the plug covers.

Cheers for all advice as I used this forum to gauge the task at had!

Glad you did it.
It really is a very simple job a basic oil change and filters. The best thing about it is that it's one of the easiest things to do and helps the engine perform and last.

It's that easy I always do an oil and filter change every 6k. Oil and filters are that cheap it would be silly not to of you do it yourself.

Chances are it will be running smoother. Nice clean oil. It will be slightly more powerful to. Even changing grades to a thinner oil can unlock a few horses from the engine.
