Early bird gets the worm. Is that your first use of the STP Euro 5W40?

Let's be real, in Miami there are not too many days that are not good for an oil change. As opposed to here in NY where I would need to lay on some snow or ice and slide under vehicle. But I can get under all my vehicles with ramps. And I like to do final dipstick check with vehicle level on the ground.

Why but oil in QTs and not gallon or 5 Qt jugs.

Probably cause the 5w40 isn't in 5qt jug yet. Least not at my autozones

Yeah, yesterday was a nice warm day to work on the car. My steering has been a little funky since putting tires on at Halloween. Found out one of the ball joints is toast. I guess the safety inspector missed that but struggled to inspect the brake shoes (he could not get the drum off).

First time using STP Euro 5w40 and as Car51 points out, it isn't available in 5qt jugs.

Pulled the Sierra in the garage yesterday afternoon. Rotated the tires. After my next trip with the Sierra it will get an oil change.
