SVOboy: When you get the jack stands, get something sturdy and solid, not something cheap and light. In the meantime, Ken's right, cinder blocks are extremely hazardous to use. If they are have pressure on them, a bump in the right spot causes them to crumble, with no warning. We don't want no unnecessary funeral expenses!!
I always put the oil cap on the hood latch before I get under the car to drain the oil. That way there is no chance of starting the engine with no oil in it (I've seen it done more than once). If you try to shut the hood with the cap there you'll likely break the cap, but you'll remember to put in the oil that you forgot. I started doing this years ago when a car was towed in with a blown up engine - a quick lube place sent them away without any oil. Most shops will fire you for doing that - breaking a cap they can deal with.

"Take off the bolt." Bolt? BOLT??? A drain plug is called a "bolt"? In what country???
I'm just funning you.... But you forgot to mention removing the "710" cap.
Yes, there is a "710" cap on the rocker cover of most engines! Really! If you can't find it...move to the other side of the engine bay...and look again! See? "OIL" cap, but it's upside down now .... -TH
