its time to do my first oil change and have a few quick questions. I live around chicago, its kinda warm now(70 deg) and will be getting cold really soon.
the dealer said the only synthetic oil they have 5W-30 form mobil. would that be good through the winter till december or can someone recommend something better ?
Also do i need a jack to raise the car on stands before doing the oil change ? or i could squeeze underneath ?
