Do-It-Yourself? Do More with Mobil 1 and O’Reilly Auto Parts


For many of us, it makes absolute sense to take care of our own car care maintenance. We know what we’re doing and we also know that the work was done properly. Consumer-focused auto parts starts sprung up across the country to help us in our ventures. When it comes to change your own oil, or performance other DIY tasks, check out Mobil 1″ at O’Reilly Auto Parts.

So why perform an oil change yourself?†It’s so you know it’s done right. You know that you used the right oil. You know that you had the right filter. You know that you secured the oil drain bolt properly but didn’t over torque it. You also get the satisfaction of knowing you did it yourself, which you can’t put a price on.

When you do it yourself, you also know you used high-quality components. That’s where Mobil 1 comes in. Mobile 1 produces a premium synthetic motor oil that’s designed to give you optimum performance. It also helps keep your engine going by combating sludge, reducing wear, and controlling oil breakdown.

A good synthetic motor oil, like Mobil 1, will improve the performance of your car, but it’ll also improve the fuel economy. When everything runs smoothly, everything runs better.

Synthetic oil also breaks down slower than conventional oils. That means that Mobil 1 will be effective longer and provide the best protection between oil changes.

If you haven’t changed your own oil before, it really is an easy process. Thanks to the modern-day internet, it’s easy to find tutorials on how to change the oil on your specific automobile. But it’s really simple.

All you have to do is remove the oil drain bolt from the bottom of the oil pan, draining the oil into a container to take it for recycling. Screw the drain bolt back in. Unscrew the oil the filter and screw on the new one — wiping a little oil on the rubber seal for a better fit, and then add the required amount of oil from the oil fill at the top of the engine.

Mobil 1 synthetic is designed to work with all vehicles, no matter the age, make, model, or mileage. Always check your owner’s manual first for recommend oil weights and requirements. The best place to get the Mobil 1 you need for your vehicle, along with the required oil filter and any other parts you ever might need is O’Reilly Auto Parts. Mobil 1 is also used by professionals and motorsports teams alike, so you know you’re getting a quality product.

You might be an old hat at oil changes, but we all can learn something new about working on our cars.

Just by taking one of the quizzes on the site, you can choose between a Mobil 1 die cast car, a hat, or 20% off SCCA membership — my favorite! So really you have no excuse to head over and take a look around!
