Thereof, how do you remove a Briggs and Stratton oil drain plug?
Tilt the mower deck and position some newspaper and an oil pan or jug beneath the mower. Use a socket wrench to run the plug counterclockwise, allowing the old oil to drain. If the plug also serves as a fill cap, it may have two prongs so you can loosen it by hand or use a screwdriver or hex key for additional torque.
All drain pans are not designed the same which is why different drain plugs are required for different vehicles. ... There is as much engineering going into the oil drain plug as any other part or system on the vehicle. Some vehicles have a reinforced drain plug hole and others do not.
SAE 30- Warmer temperatures, most common oil for small engines. SAE 10W-30- Varying temperature range, this grade of oil improves cold-weather starting, but may increase oil consumption. Synthetic SAE 5W-30- Best protection at all temperatures as well as improved starting with less oil consumption.
So to answer your question, no. Changing your own oil is not cheaper (unless you drive a Bugatti). If anything, it's more expensive. But the little details like knowing exactly what's in your car, and the pride of knowing you did it yourself, makes DIY oil changes worth the time, money, and overall struggle.
