View Full Version : Oil Change Questions

12-19-06, 06:48 PM
I am going to change the oil for the first time on my 2006 STS V8 4.6L, and would like to know a couple if things:

1: Where is the oil drain plug, and is there only one? (Want to be sure to drain all old oil)

2:What oil filter should I use (AC Delco vs. Mobil 1 Extended Performance)?

My dealer installed oil filter 89017342 (filter was marked AC Delco PF61) along with 7 1/2 qt "full synthetic oil" (Mobil 1 or ??): filter @ $8.50; oil @ $49.50; labor @ $12; haz @ $2.62; tax @ $4.50 for total =$77.12 Also all fluid checks as well as my list of other checks + front & rear wheel alignment +++ @ $0. Seems fair to me.

Not bad, considering it is even expensive to change oil myself being that Mobil 1 synthetic is so expensive. Will cost me total of $40 for oil/filter to do it myself.
