What ever you do, don't bring your car to Jiffy Lube, especially if it's a busy day for them. I once saw them put an oil filter on with a strap wrench, and cranked it on so hard the strap started to scrap the paint off the filter. As evryone knows your only supposed to use a filter wrench to remove the filter not put it on. It is suppose to be hand tightened about 3/4 of a turn after the filter gasket meets the seating surface. They also like to crack the living daylights out of the oil pan drain plug.
