I will tear into any part of my tractors that nead it. But I haven't changed oil in my pickup/s in at least 15 years.
Take it to the Chevy dealer and they fill all the reservoirs, check brakes, lights, tires, etc, etc for about $28 now. Rotate the tires when they need it for an extra $8.
I sit in the lounge and enjoy their free coffee and popcorn.
It's a tax write off to boot, so why bother getting dirty and getting rid of the old oil?

That's not the experience I've had at the Ford dealership. I took my '95 F-250 there when I first got it for a quick once over. They charged me plenty and missed plenty more. Darn radiator was full of Bars StopLeak but the overflow bottle was clean and green - because the small hose was plugged solid. They missed it, I didn't, and I'm not going back.
With time and a shop manual you can normally do a much more careful job. I've now gotten the truck to where I could drive it just about anywhere anytime fully loaded and not worry.

At a dealer it is probably guaranteed as well?
Unlike the quick lube joints that charge about the same?

It's an honest question, I don't know the answer.

My truck requires synthetic, the quick lube joints don't
have it and my local dealer closed.
So I do it myself. No big deal. Do all the tractors anyway.

I have found that the dealer is usually cheaper than the Rapid oil change type places.

Nobody is going to put a filter and 7+ quarts of synthetic oil in an engine for $28. I doubt you could even get 4 quarts poured in at that price.....
