|If you want to maintain the good condition of your Mercruiser engines, or any of type of Marine engine, you need to change oil once a year.
In changing a Mercruiser engine oil, you will need an oil filter wrench, bucket, new oil filter, oil, water supply, soap and water. You will also need gloves and safety goggles for protection and a fire extinguisher, oil hand pump and an o-ring.
Remove the old filter and old o-ring using a wrench. Remove the dipstick and thread oil to your hand pump until the end of the dipstick tube. Suck the old oil using a hand pump and place it one a container.
Get your new oil filter and new o-ring and smear some oil on it. Put the filter on and using a wrench, secure the filter but make sure that you do not tighten it up too much. Add oil to the Boat engine and let it sit for 5 minutes to allow the oil to settle in then put back the dipstick and the dipstick back on. Turn the engine on for it to warm up then turn it off again. Let it sit again for 5 minutes then remove the dipstick and observe the oil level. If the oil is not enough, add more.
