Me and my friend tried to change the oil on my car, but one problem is my jack wouldn't put the car up high enough to give me enough leverage to break the bolt at the bottom of the tank. I tried to remove the bolt for hours and it wouldn't budge. However, I was able to get the filter off (by hand) and replace it, and we got out a lot of oil from the tank. I checked the dipstick to see how much was in there, and it appeared to be hardly at all, so we just went in and poured the new quart of oil in and called it a day.
How much of the engine oil actually comes out through unsrewing the filter without unscrewing the nut at the bottom of the tank? My change oil indicator is still on, my friend suggested it would shut off when it had the time to cycle through? Also, is there an affordable way to get your car high enough off the ground so you can put some real elbow grease into the breaker bar?
