I don't think a dealer makes much on an oil change so they are usually rushed to get the car in and out. They most likely don't drain all the old oil out before refilling with new stuff.

I wish the tire industry wouldn't push the tire change = alignment. Just have the tech perform a visual on the 1,2,3, or 4 tires getting changed and show the driver the findings (if there are any).

Good advice is my advice. I have three. One from sears- looks like a regular pencil that reads to 75psi. A heavy one from the hardware store that reads to 120psi. And I recently entered the digital era with one from 5-99psi from our lumberyard.
