Location for oil change

Where can I get an oil change in the south side close to 45S & Beltway 8?
I have never done it and don't know how to do it myself. Is there any place close by there that can do it tomorrow. Thanks in advance

why would you let somebody else do an oil change? it's not rocket science? takes a lil bit of common sense. most shops are gonna charge around $45 labor, then oil & filter. it ain't gonna be a $20 walmart special.

Arturo's Unlimited can do it. good service and you can pay him in coins.


just do a search on motorcyel oil changes and it walks you through it. dont forget righty-tighty, lefty loosy when removing the plug and filter.

RacerX, if people were mechanical incline as you, there will be no posts. For the people that doesn't know how, don't do it yourself and let the professional do it for you. Trying to save a measly $20 will cost you an engine and transmission or maybe your life.

he is right. something i learned quick is not everyone is a mechanic. fewer are mechanicly inclined. many are mechanicly incompetant. alot are a plain old disasters waiting to happen.

some people ARE that ignorant, neglectful, and careless. ive have heard of people having to get new oil pans, and now that i work for a dealer, i know what they can cost for oem...:confused1

sure, its really easy, but if you do it wrong imagine how bad it could be...

lol. imagine someone filling the oil to the top...like the VERY top about to spill out, can you imagine how bad that would be...haha. im laughing but its really not funny. how about someone thinking itd be cool to wash out their oil filter with the garden hose and re-use it...or forget to put the washer back on for the drain plug (then lose all their oil, and run dry for 3k+ miles), or use the COMPLETLY wrong type of oil alltogether.

working in parts, people always ask me "this is easy to put on, right?". ive learned i cant answer that question. even if i know everything involved...sure, its easy for the mechanic...but hes the mechanic. i dont know the person asking the question. when people ask me that, i ask them a few questions.

ever changed your oil/plugs?

ever tightened your chain/removed your wheels?

ever rebuilt a clutch?

cause basicly i would say none of these are "harder" than the other. its not a matter of hard...its a matter of knowing what your doing!

if your not sure ask someone, if your still not sure, consult the manual. still not sure. ask the mechanic. STILL not sure, let the mechanic do it...
