The other day I was getting an oil change and disgust came over me when the guy started reading the "recommended" services. Yeah, yeah, yeah- I know my transmission fluid is black instead of pink, my air filter is full, my radiator needs coolant- but I'd rather buy a new dress than spend money on car maintenance.
Then I got empowered! How hard can these things REALLY be? Sure, I have never opened the hood of my car. But, isn't that what YouTube videos are for? I searched for a video on how to change my transmission fluid and found a step-by-step tutorial (I love social media), then I recruited two boys, and simple enough... we did it... and it only took 10 minutes! Not only did I save $120, but I yelped "girl power" during the process.
Yes, we used my mom's dishes as drain pans :)
