I have already had my first oil change(done at dealer). I'm thinking I might want to use fresh oil in the spring. Is there anything special that needs to be done to change over to synthetic? I don't have a jack either but have been considering one. Since the most maintenance I ever plan on doing is my own oil changes Is there enough clearance to drain the oil and get to the filter easily using that very technical brick & 2x4 leveling device?
