I have a question, I've been having my oil changed at Jiffy Lube with mobil 1 is that good or bad( the jiffy lube part)?

Just be careful that the brain trust at Jiffy Lube uses the right filter. And yes, Mobil 1 is the only way to go.

Do you all use the Saab oil filters from Taliaferro? Or what... Because I'm pretty worried, I did a DIY oil change yesterday, and put in some oil filter my dad bought from autozone... I looked at the receipt... it said 1995 Saab 900s.. so I should be good....

Anytime you buy a part from Autozone they ask about the car the part is going on, that gets printed on the receipt. It doesn't necessarily mean that the filter was matched to the car, especially if you've bought something else for the car.

As an aside I would die before I ever took a car to Jiffy Lube or Sears or any of those quick-change places... you are best to just DIY at home.

Hmmm... I guess I wanted to hear its gonna be fine... :lol: I've only driven it for like 5 minutes since the oil change to check how the oil level would be after the engine ran, it seemed to run fine, I hope its ok. But where do you get your Saab filters then? Taliaferro? Local place?

I use Mann filters, from my foreign auto guy. They're about $6 a pop. I drive two c900s though, it might be a little different than yours. Only reason I say avoid JL or something similar is because all too often they overtighten a drain plug or in my case reinsert the dipstick improperly creating a massive vaccuum leak which put my car in the shop for a week before the dipstick working on the car figured out that it was the dipstick put in wrong. (No trust in anyone when it comes to my cars.)
