    Your car will take anything. Synthetic may be recommended but if you are using Jiffy Lube you probably don't give a shit about your car anyway.

    Yea, enjoy getting sold an injector cleaning, a coolant flush and transmission flush -

    Your car will be happy taking 10-30 you can buy at the food store as long as it's fresh and changed every 3000 miles depending on your climate and vehicle usage

    Check with AAA and the BBB to find yourself a real, reliable mechanic.

    Was his name Mack? He changes oil for a living and is in "sales". This explains everything. Commie bastard, always taking advantage of the working folk.

    It's nice to just drive in and get it knocked out along with a tire rotation in about 20 minutes. is it really necessary to have a reliable,, competent mechanic to change your oil? I suppose they could fail to screw the drain plug in tightly, but really what else could they fuck up?

    Too many people I know have had issues......cross threaded filters that blow off, stripped drain plugs from gorilla tightening, upcharging for flushes and other phantom fixes. I'm sure there are some with well trained, conscientious employees that do a fine job but I don't trust taking my car to those places. The risk is the same, IMO, at lots of dealers/shops so just find a place highly recommended and stick with 'em.

    I'm an asshole that still does most everything myself because that way I know it's done right.

    They take advantage of anyone they can who wouldn't know any better. Read below as to what happened to a 94 year old who took her car in for a simple oil change.
