Do you change your own oil?

Despite the fact that I am 75, I can still do oil changes. I change the oil & filter on my wife's 2015 CRV. I also do oil changes on my own car.....not a Honda of any sort, but a 2001 Olds Aurora 4.0.

Marc,

Crawling under cars every 3 to 5K miles at 75? YOU ARE A TROOPER MAN!

I am tempted to go for a jack under the subframe and blocking under front jack points next time rather than wrestle those awkward but effective ramps of dad's.
