Question about 1997 Ford Expedition
I have never changed the oil in my own vehicle and i want to start doing it myself.
From any Motor store, purchase the Correct OIL filter, 5 quarts Engine oil, grade10w/30. An appropriate 1/2" square drive BASIC socket set, a Filter Wrench, and an OIL DRAIN pan.
Make sure you have under vehicle ground clearance, and run the engine to normal operating temperature.
Swich off, and REMOVE the IGNITION KEY.
Position the oil drain pan, and unfasten the OIL drain plug, on the Engine Oil Pan. With a waste rag handy, remove the plug the remainder of the way by hand. [Try not to burn youself with HOT waste oil]. Let the oil drain out until it stops dripping.
Reinstall the Drain plug, and ensure you secure the plug tightly.
Remove the OIL Filter, and drop it into the waste oil pan.
Install the New Filter, coating the Sealing Ring with a film of CLEAN OIL, and again ensure it is firmly located, with an additional 1/4 turn with the Filter wrench.
FILL the New Engine oil in through the Filler Tube, checking the Oil dipsick to ensure no overfill. When the fill mark is reached, replace the filler tube cap and start up.
When the Engine Low pressure warning light goes out, Stop the engine, and recheck the level on the dipstick, and top up as necessary, to the UPPER level mark.
Job done. Retain any New oil for later topping up, and take the waste oil, in a separate container to a waste oil disposal point. Do not throw it in the Domestic trash bin as a means of disposal.

Jack the car and support it on jackstands. put a can or oil catcher under the oil drain plug then loosen but do not remove the plug. slowly start to remove the plug letting oil drain out . when all the oil is drained remove the filter using a filter wrench available at most auto stores for under $10. hand tighten the new filter acoring to the instructions on the filter then replace the drain plug. Now add up to the specified litres of oil and check under the car/truck for leaks around the drainplug and filter. now you are done

Places that service motorhomes want to make the bigger bucks. Do it yourself. Its just a drain plug and filter removal. They have a large oil capacity but if you have changed oil before on other cars go ahead and do it. If it sits high enough off the ground you will not need to raise it. Get a good oil change pan that holds 8 quarts. It may take that much.
