Did my second oil Change (23,047 miles) -- 4th for the car as dealer did the 1st and third, I did 2nd.
Total cost $35.72 with one quart oil left over. WALMART purchase 5 quart container of VALVOLINE 0w-20 Synthetic @ $22.97 and FRAM XG9688 Filter @ $9.63 ---- plus tax on both.
Easier this time than last time, but I still fiddled around near 2 hours getting things together and out of the basement up to the garage, putting car on board ramps and putting everything back in basement when done.
I borrowed in advance the neighbors wrench that fits the KIA Oil Filter which was installed by the dealer on 3rd oil change (The KIA filter takes a bigger wrench than the one I have for the FRAM filters).
I had in hand the 10MM socket (for removing cover shields) and 17MM socket (for removing pan nut), as well as a 3 inch extension, and ratchet and non-ratchet wrenches with drives to fit the sockets and the oil filter wrench.
The oil filter and pan nut were tight again, but not as bad as the last time I did oil change 2 after dealer had done oil change 1 (a gorilla tightened down the oil filter and drain plug - GROAN).
Put the car on board ramps (3 high 2 x 8s) which is barely enough to get under the car.
Repeat pictures I posted on my second oil change.
