Saw this and thought you all might get a laugh out of it.....

How to Change the Oil in Your Jeep. . .


1) Pull in to Jiffy Lube when the mileage reaches 3,000 since the last oil change

2) Drink a cup of coffee

3) Fifteen minutes later, pay $25 and leave with a properly maintained Jeep


1) Go to NAPA Auto Parts and pay $30 for oil, filter, hand cleaner, scented tree air freshener, and numerous other items you realize you need

2) Discover that your used oil collection container is full; take it to the recycling center

3) Spend 20 minutes trying to locate your floor jack and jack stands; no luck

4) Have a beer; you don't really need to jack up the Jeep anyway

5) Place used oil collection container under the engine

6) Pull out socket wrench and socket; the 5th one you try is finally the correct size

7) Unscrew oil drain plug

Cool Drop drain plug in oil; splashing hot oil all over you (and the garage floor) in the process

9) Wipe off face with dirty shop rag and sprinkle kitty litter on garage floor where oil splashed

10) Have another beer while oil is draining

11) Look 15 minutes for oil filter wrench; no luck

12) Poke oil filter with a Phillips screwdriver and twist it off

13) Wipe oil off of your arm with same dirty rag used in step 9; sprinkle more kitty litter on floor

14) Buddy shows up; finish off 6-pack with him. Screw the oil change; finish it tomorrow!

15) Next day, drag full oil collection container out from underneath the Jeep

16) Sprinkle more kitty litter on oil spilled during step 15

17) Have a . . . wait, no beer left, drank it all yesterday

1Cool Walk 2 miles to Corner Store; buy more beer

19) Apply a thin coat of clean oil to gasket and install new oil filter

20) Dump first quart of fresh oil into engine

21) Remember drain plug from step 8!

22) Scramble to find drain plug in oil collection container

23) Hurry to replace drain plug before entire quart of fresh oil drains all over floor

24) Slip with wrench and bang knuckles on frame; band head on floor board in reaction

25) Begin cussing fit and throw wrench across garage

26) Clean up and apply Band-Aid to knuckles

27) Sprinkle kitty litter on one entire quart of fresh oil now pooled under the Jeep

2Cool Have another beer

29) Dump in remainder of oil into engine

30) Realize that while you were under the Jeep, it would have been a good time to grease everything, bleed the brakes, replace those dry-rotted body spacers, and find out where that hideous clanking noise is coming from

31) Drive back to NAPA and buy another $150 worth of parts that either won't fit, will break when you try to install them, or will be saved for a later project (all of which will have long been misplaced by the time you are ready to start subject project)

32) Drive Jeep (1-quart low of oil) for 7,000 miles; then return to Step 1
"GODZILLA" More than a Jeep, it's family!!
