Learning to Change My Oil


Faithful HomesteaderAt a young age, I learned about checking the oil in my car from my mother. Now I have also learned to change my own oil.

As part of my learning journey, I asked my husband to teach me how to change the oil in my truck.

I feel a real sense of accomplishment. One surprising result was ending up with sore abdominals from going back and forth under the truck.

The first part of the process was checking that there was not any kind of issue with putting new oil in the truck. We took out the dipstick and removed the oil fill cap.

Next was getting under the truck and removing the oil filter. I am not used to getting on a dirty garage floor, so it was a bit unsettling for me. It certainly wasn't the most comfortable thing.
