Oil change places set you up dry though...

I told them I had never seen anyone do that before and I thought I was the only one who did that. So few and far places do. This goes back to what Will harps on about friends/family recomendations for garages

X2. I stopped taking my cars to Valvoline because I found the hard way that they weren't greasing at all.
