Wow, that is so bad! I def think I am going to save a couple bucks and going to do it myself. Haven't priced out the supplies yet, so i don't know if I will be spending less

Yea, agree. My experience, they still do. For those not familiar - They also have the underlube cam going on so you can watch the tech drain and install filter :thumbsup: - and sometimes fumble with the skid plate on those models which have them.How I miss Oil Can Henry's up there in the Northwest. Always had great service with those guys! :grin:
Yep. And when you think about it. Older cars with older oil tech really did need a change every 3K to 5K miles. If you use your maintenance minder on your Z, you may drive six months before you need to change out the oil. Longer periodicity makes it much cheaper than maybe it used to be - even though it may seem more expensive. And Greener.:iough:
Honda oil filters are probably one of the best filters you can use on any engine... OEM filter is like $5 bucks at cost/emp price and like $7 if u buy them w/o a hookup... you can buy oil for like $20-$30 for a gallon (4qts)...
add those up and you're at about $40/oil change if you DIY...
if it's anything like my Si was, it has more to do with mileage and the way you drive... ie: drive it hard, that gets factored in and the oil % drops faster... drive normal/softer and the % goes down like normal... what that "normal" is, i do not know opcorn:What is the oil change interval for the CR-Z according to the manual?
well my Si had real :vtec: which some may know, burns oil... it wasn't bad... but it required 4.5 quarts of oil and about midway through my oil changes i would pour the remaining 0.5qts in there... then when i change it, it would be a little under 3.75qts that i drained... but i beat the crap out of my car lol...I figured that it was the health of the oil. However, does it also calculate oil level into it as well or should I continue to check that manually?
