Hey dudes.
I am in an auto class at school. And we just learned how to change our oil. And I have a brand new 2.5rs. Its time to change my oil and im just wondering if there is anything special about the first oil change. Cause I want it to make all the correct seals. So if I dont know that much about it should I change it our let my dealer do it.

oil change

you shouldn't own that car if you can't change oil. I am just gald you don't have a WRX. Do you have a oil tepm guage if so. You will need to disconnect it.

Look here for details:

If it's the first change ever for the car, the oil drain plug and filter will be very tight. You'll need a good filter wrench to get the filter off. Also, there is a crush washer that you should replace each time. People will argue that you don't need to. Myself I change it every so often, not every time. If you have an oil temp guage there will be a wire to the oil drain plug and you'll need a 1-1/16" (22mm) open end to get it off.

Look at the pics on the link above and that should help. Use Dino oil for at least 10K before switching to Synth too.
