Default Oil Change / Lower Unit Oil = $200

Does that sound right? I had it completely winterized in VA for just a tick over $100.

it sounds like they are planning on doing an alignment check too for that price....the oil only costs about 4 bucks....buy a pump and do it yourself...not hard....

Engine oil/lower unit oil, lubricant on required elements, impeller change for $396+tax. I told him to go ahead this time. Going forward I'll do my own oil changes. Can I do my own lower unit oil change? I've done it a few times on my old outboard. how different is it to do?

I've been changing car/motorcycle oil for 25 years but I don't have a clue how to do it on my boat. Do you know of a tutorial?

Thanks sp.

I did the lower unit oil in my boat recently... grab your engine owners manual and it gives you step by step details....

It really very very simple.
