    So I took the car in for an oil change, 11 miles off the 3000 mark from last month. They said they'd wash it as well...which they usually do for free.

    I drop it off just before 2 and go in and sit down in the waiting room. I went to the show room and talked about the new Si, sat in a new 240 hp V6 6 sp accord (PIMPAGE) and then priced the passenger door protector piece... 100 bucks, not too bad.

    SO anyway, after 45 minutes they call my name, i pay my 17 bucks, go out to my car, and it's still all muddy and dirty and shit... what the fuck? oh well. I'll wait for it to rain tonight or tomorrow...either one.

    So I get into my car and I'm lookin at the next oil change sticker and I get really really fucking confused....

    Next oil change sticker says:

    The Mileage on my Si as of 5 minutes ago is:

    and there's still mud and bugs on my damn car although i did get the bird shit off of it at the gas station.

    I'm trying to figure out what the tech was thinking when he wrote my next oil change sticker.... lol

    :bo: Fucking loosers!

    How hard is it to add 3000 miles to 49000?

    Incompetence(sp?) is funny.

    Seriously, go back there and tell them that. That would be like if a waiter screwed up your order without fixing it. It isn't your fault the lube guy is an idiot who can't tell the mileage that is on your car is more than the mileage he wrote down for your next oil change. Then tell the manager they need to make sure their techs passed the 1st grade. <_<

    Check your oil dude. Did they even change it?



    Edit: That's why I never let other people work on my car.

    I am glad you all have never made a mistake. Looks like the tech hit the - button instead of the + button on the calculator. One question, if you want it done right why don't you change your own oil?

    How do you screw up an oil change? I change my oil w/ synthetic for the price of a change at any shop. Its easy. You'll want to warm up your car first.

    1. Pop Hood
    2. Unscrew Oil Filler Cap
    3. Put oil catch pan under oil pan drain bolt.
    4. Loosen drain bolt.
    5. Wait for the pan to drain completely.
    6. Scoot the catch pan over slightly under the intermediate shaft to catch the oil from the filter.
    7. Loosen Filter a bit, so that oil will slow start to drain, and wait until it stops draining.
    8. RnR the filter.
    9. Screw in the oil pan drain bolt. Make sure it is tight enough, but not too tight.
    10. Put oil in car. right around 4 quarts worth
    11. Check dipstick, and make sure correct level of fluid is there.
    12. Screw in and tighten the filler cap.
    13. Drop the hood, go spin a few donuts in a nearby parking lot, and your good.

    It takes all of a half hour. The recycle guys here give me a big oil container that they come by and pick up after its full, and a bag to put the used filters in.

    I don't have any time to do an oil change. I got off work, went to get it done then had to go back to work. I was 11 miles off the 3000 mile mark. I get nervous about going over the 3k mark. It's easier to pay 17 dollars and let other people with the proper tools and equipment (namely a big fatty LIFT) do it instead of me trying to take 2 hours to do it on the hot blacktop pavement of my apartment complex.

    Then there's the problem of dumping the oil back into the quarts to take it to autozone to pay them to take it back.

    Screw that.

    - button on the calculater? what he can't add 3000 to 49,755?? :roll: Like the title says...apparently they hire anybody.

    btw I used to change my oil myself on my Geo and Escort all the time, but now I have no time anymore. Besides on the newer cars they have to do something so the oil light won't come on or whatever. I dunno. fuckit.

    10 minutes with a set of ramps, a catch bin and a 17mm socket is all it takes me... real quick and easy, and that's taking my time too.

    It's cool- I'm lazy too- I just prefer to do oil changes myself. It's easy, plus I make sure to get everything just right.
