wow i changed the oil pan gasket yesterday! not a difficault job but lots of steps involve specially when u have to crawl under the car lol. any way is it physcological (me) or is there some truth to my next statement. i feel the car performs better, smoother nicer, etc, when i do an oil change is this just in my head or is it true what i "feel"? seems to happen to any car i do the oil to? just a statement really not expecting a full explanation

In my opinion, I believe it's mostly psychological but there might be some truth to it.
I think you might feel a difference if the old oil had thickened up and you replace it with fresh thinner oil.
Another thing is that some oils do quiet down the engine better than other oils which can contribute to the "warm fuzzy feeling". :lol:
