I'm going to change my own oil for the first time in about 1000 miles using a pair of ramps from Bennett. Is there any special advice for doing this with an Insight? Is there any difference between the brands of synthetic oil?
Be very careful with the drain plug threads. They are extremely sensitive to mishandling. I suck the oil out the dipstick with a marine pump in order to avoid problems with the plug. Check for other messages about drain plug thread problems. Be cautious!
