Looking at the items, none of them are difficult things to replace; especially, the engine oil and oil filter.

You may, at least, learn how to do that yourself.

But, if you are starting from scratch, you will have to invest in some basic tools, which will last you a lifetime for many cars/trucks to come.

I did it myself in about 4 hours taking my time. Honestly, replacing the side reflectors was harder. Do it yourself and use the money you save to buy some mods
