Learning how to change the oil in my boat’s outboard motor has ultimately saved me so much time and money, because I don’t have to take it in to mechanics and spend a fortune having someone else do something so simple. Obviously, it’s quite a bit different from changing a car’s oil, but it’s still something that’s absolutely worth learning overall.
Generally, learning how to change the oil is something that is described in the manual that was purchased with the boat or with the outboard. The overall process tends to be draining the boat motor oil completely and then adding the oil from the drain hole. Once you’ve figured out to do these things, you’re pretty much able to change your boat’s oil!
