Hi-- I'm new here, and I need to get my oil changed in my golf cart. I live close to Lake Sumter Landing. Where is a good place to get this service done? Thanks.

Should have your cart serviced once a year when they will include oil change. Plenty of good suggestion if you search on this site. Most just do the service in your driveway.

It’s pretty easy to do. I change both of our carts and our Traverse.

In fact, I’m going to change the cart this afternoon when I get home from work.

Totally agree, it takes less time to change it yourself, saves money, and you know it’s being done correctly. And I always use Amsoil, so I know our vehicles are getting the best possible protection.

For changing the oil yourself, where/how do you dispose of the used oil?

Default Stores which sell oil are required to take oil back for recycling

Stores which sell oil will recycle oil, which is a state or federal law

Any issue running synthetic in these engines? Mine is a (new to me) reman so it already has way more than enough hours to break it in, but a cooler running oil can't be a bad thing I wouldn't think.

If you peruse "bobistheoilguy" there are threads on splash engines, many being that MFGs often recommend non synthetics. More recent engines they say either will work. I've run synthetic in splash engines for years without any issues.

Viscosity and shear are important and synthetics tend to last longer, so the real answer is, no one has ever shown that a synthetic in a gasoline splash engine is a problem. Run what you want to run as long as it's not some no-name cheapo brand you found at a flea market.

No problem with using synthetic motor oil. I have been using fully synthetic Amsoil in both our Yamaha and Club Car for years with no issues.

I just saw Don's Kart Services on the site: 352-272-5790
A friend used them for transport, but I think they also do service.

I have a quietech cart the pan under the cart is a pain to remove to get to the oil pan plug. I bought a manual pump and suck the oil out through the dipstick access. I don't get all the oil out but get most of it out. I change it often enough where it won't matter. It takes me about 10 minutes max and costs me one quart of oil most places charge around $70...
