Oil & Filter Change


It’s that time again. I would think since coming in off the road, changing the oil & filter would get less frequent, and however, my commute still adds up to 1600 miles each month plus errands and lunch. That means this errand still rolls around every few months.

I’m trying a new service center this time. The local oil change business shut down some time ago, but a new one has opened up a mile from the house. It will be nice if they do a good job because of convenience.

I had to quit using the previous business in this location because they were careless. They changed the oil and filter but didn’t have a quality check process in place and I drove off with a loose drain plug.

I was 400 miles from home when the oil light came on. Yep, when I pulled the dipstick it was dry. No oil… It had all blown out leaving me broke down in Hale Center, Texas. Don’t know where that is? You really need to check a map to grasp the circumstances. Oh, and there are no shops in Hale Center. And after hours is worse. The nearest wrecker was 75 miles away.

I’ll save the rest of the story for later. I think they are about done.
