comment 換える, 替える, 代える, 変える and their intransitive equivalents
Haha. All I can say is that this is likely part of the overlap, because it seems that way to me too. The only difference I can see is that for an oil change, there's a second party involved (the mechanic), but for changing the ink cartridge in your pen, there isn't. But I think that's a stretch. But then 換気扇 also doesn't fit the mold. So I don't know.

comment Japanese Buts: でも, しかし, ただ, ただし, ところが, が, けど, けれど, けれども
Well, I was thinking of それにしても and (それ)にもかかわらず. Add them or not; it's up to you. Just trying to give more ideas to increase your "arsenal".
