If there is a Auto Zone around your area, you can get the oil and filter there with the step by step  instructions needed to get the job gone. There is a oil filter wrench for you to buy to remove the old oil filter, buy the oil filter cup that attaches to the ratchet, the other wrenches tend to crush the filters. Keep me posted be glad to answer any questions and give you instructions to the oil change procedure if Auto ZOne could not help you or there is not one around you.

Pretty much you have to jack the car up and put it on car stands. Make sure the thick heavy beams of metal - the chassis are what is on the stand. Underneath you motor directly, where you check the oil there should be like a single bolt around 8mm in diameter in a little metal tank. The bolt should be not attaching anything and in the middle somewhere. If you undo that the oil will come out, watch out it will be hot and make sure you have like a bucket underneath. Then find the filter - match the one you got to the same thing under the hood. Undo the old one then put the new one back on only HAND TIGHT. Then put the bolt but in the hole and fill with oil. Don't fill it too much and don't fill it too little. Add around 3 litres then slowly add more while checking the dipstick. Shoud get you out of trouble didn't know how simple you needed it.

Is replacing a burned out head light on a 2006 CRV something that a novice could reasonable do? or is that better left to pros?

I think from the price point, you answered your own question

I would never go to a dealer for anything but warranty work

The local shop is okey, if you build a relationship & stay there,
most people hop around to different places with bad results

You need to find the bolts or screws to remove the lamp assy
from the body,then you can figure out the socket & bulb removal

Don't touch the lamp,you get oil on it from your skin & halogen
lamps don't like that

I think you will be in for a challange to say the least but should
at least try

Maybe a neighbor could help show you

If you need instructions we have none & auto repairs are not
done with them or your in need of education & experience

I like to change oil myself (ensure plug is in correctly and filter tight). How difficult is this for my 2006 Porsche Caymen S or should I just take to dealer?

If your novice at oil changes, I recommend taking it to the dealer especially, your vehicle being a porsche you don't want to make a mistake thats going to cost you an engine. If the dealer messes up they have insurance for that, so play it safe its not worth your time to save a couple of bucks.... on a Porsche god bless.

Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage

The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

Wrench = Maintenance Minder: Symbol letter & number...
Symbol A - Relace engine oil.
Symbol B - Replace engine oil & filter, Inspect front & rear brakes, Check parking brake adjustment, Visually inpest the tie rods, suspension components,driveshaft boots, brake hoses & line (including ABS), all fluid levels & their conditions, exhaust system, fuel lines & connections.
Symbol 1 - Rotate tires.
Symbol 2 - Replace air cleaner element (dusty conditions every 15K miles) & replace dust & pollen filter (behind glovebox) every 15K miles if mainly dusty or city driving.
Symbol 3 - Replace transmission fluid.
Symbol 4 - Replace spark plugs.
Symbol 5 - Replace engine coolant.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.

2006 Ford Explorer "Oil Change Required" light is still on after changing the oil


Oil Change Reset
A press of the OIL CHANGE RESET switch will allow you to
reset the oil life feature to 100% (or your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage). After you have the oil changed, you must execute
the following procedure. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch
and hold for five seconds as the M/C counts down for five
seconds. After a successful reset the Message Center will display
“OIL LIFE RESET TO 100%.” If you have established a
Personalized Oil Reset Percentage, the display will show that
percentage instead of 100%. To ensure accurate oil life
indicators, perform this reset procedure only after an oil change.
Your Personalized Oil Reset Percentage allows you to establish a
smaller oil change interval than the manufacturer’s
recommended interval. To establish your Personalized Oil Reset
Percentage perform the following procedure:
1. Press and hold the OIL CHANGE RESET switch and press
the RESET switch while the display is still counting down
the 5 seconds to reset. The display will change to “START
2. Press the OIL CHANGE RESET switch until the displayed
percentage is the Personalized Oil Reset Percentage that you
desire. Your choices are 100%, 90%, 80%, 70%, 60%, 50%,
40% and 30%.
