I have been super busy the last few months, and I have not had time to give my car the attention it deserves. I found some time yesterday so I jacked the car up using my wooden cribs with jack stands as a backup, and performed an oil change. Before an oil change I like to drive the car until it hits normal operating temperature so that the oil drains better. There is no need to rush as the oil will stay hot for a long time, I got it in the air and ready to drain the oil in about 45 minutes and the oil was still very hot (be careful not to burn yourself). I then let it drain for at least an hour.
Today, I lifted the car and performed an oil change. I used the wooden cribs seen in photo above to lift the car 6" before putting it on my Esco stands which have a minimum height of 13" inches. I used the rear jack point to lift the front onto stands, then the center rear jack point under the engine to lift both rear wheels onto stands.
