Does it take synthetic oil, or regular? And if regular, what kind? It has 62500 miles on it.
any API certified 5W20 oil meeting material standard MS-6395 will do. although not specifically required, many prefer synthetic or synthetic blend.
btw, welcome to LXforums.

And what oil filter do you guys recommend? And can I buy the oil filter some place besides the internet? (e.g. Pep Boys)
I use either WIX or NAPA gold for filters and Pennzoil Platinum for oil. Even when I dont do it myself I will take my preferred filter and oil in with me.
I recommend www.bobistheoilguy.com for some info.
Be very cautious of the larger chains and stealerships. Very often the lowest guy on the totem pole is the "LOF" guy (lube, oil, filter).
Only if you can see it, and NEVER take mystery oil from that pipe that goes out back to an unmarked drum!

Good to know.
But do you guys know of a good place to buy one of the recommended oil filters and synthetic oils from? How many quarts of synthetic oil do I need to buy?

HUGE thanks to Hemiwagn and HalfFast Performance for making it all possible.
Thanks, I'll probably go to Wallmart and get the oil. But does anyone know what store to buy one of the recommended filters at? I don't want to order it off the internet since that'll take too long.
And what does "lube" mean in the term lube, oil, filter? Please, no innuendos/jokes-I have to figure out what this means and if an auto-place will do it if I bring my own oil/filter for an oil change.
http://www.wixfilters.com/ and type in your zip on the left side and it will list stores that carry the filters. Lube is what I would consider greasing the chassis. I am not sure if there are any factory locations that need this but I could be wrong. Hope that helps.

I drive mine like I just left the bank after an unapproved forced permanent loan ...
LOL.. I'm watching a documentary on Walmart on TV right now as I'm typing this.. they're like taking over the world... and they do OIL CHANGES now?! Wow.
I think I'll get the Napa filter at a Napa auto parts store nearby since that seems like a safe bet. I need the #1085, no? (I drive a 2005 5.7)
