    Default Oil change on a Getz 1.4: Do I need ramps/lift

    Good day,

    I need to do an oil change on a Getz 1.4 (Oil and oil filter). I have done a Hilux and Prado in the past, where I just crawled under car, drained the oil, replaced filter, and most importantly, put in oil bolt and tighten

    However, the Getz is a bit low, will I be able to drain oil without it being on a ramp/lift?

    Thanks,
    J

    take a deep breath...hold it in and carry on...Make sure when u exhale you are no longer lying under car.
    On a series note, I had to jack up my I10 to change oil..Could not get to sump plug...

    no need for ramps, just jack it up and drop it tp drain properlyand jack
    it up to fasten the sump plug.

    I changed the i10 oil the other day. The only reason I had to jack it up was because the mechanic the last time tightened the oil filter so tight I needed to fashion tools to get it loose!

    i won’t need to jack it next time.
