Liv’s (@livtaylordodge) video clip begins with another TikTok showing a girl bragging about paying a reduced $197 cost for oil changes because the garage’s service guy thinks she’s cute.

Next, Liv immediately jumps into her oil change tutorial to educate her viewers.

Liv starts by telling her audience that she needs to drain her car’s old oil.

Car oil becomes contaminated over time, turning the liquid into sludge that wreaks havoc on your engine.

This female mechanic highlights her vehicle’s oil filter and a sizable adjacent bolt.

Liv notes that this bolt is what you’ll loosen to drain your old oil and how you’ll place a tray underneath to collect the liquid.

The video’s auto technician pulls the bolt, splashing oil everywhere.

Liv jokes: “Now we know what not to do.”

She added: “I’m pretty sure all the women that I have interested in changing their oil, I just changed their mind.

“But — be a bad bi**h and do it anyways with me. It’s the only way you’re going to learn.”

Liv reinstalled her vehicle’s oil drainage bolt after getting splashed and drained the remaining liquid by drilling a hole into the filter, resulting in a slower flow.

She struggled to twist off her old oil filter but clarified this was due to her leaving work tools like wrenches at work.

Liv finished her lesson by twisting her new oil filter on and recommending that you leave the component loosened “just a smidge” to prevent it from getting stuck during its next replacement.
