What are the reasons vehicle owners don't change their own motor oil?


Typically those I know avoid timely oil changes.The dipstick commonly reveals a sludge consistency. Viscosity is vital to the lubrication process. Convenience & cost of bringing to a mechanic was a factor. Going to the dentist for a "woot canal" only fared worse in popularity. Another fav response for delaying an oil change: The mystery inevitable costly repair. Actual fear instilled by their trustworthy mechanic. If you have kids,"it's over johnny." Finally one guy told me his dad told him to quit changing his oil in his dad's garage until he got rid of the last 3 gallons of oil.
