Oil Change & Lube Questions to Ask

In order to save yourself some headaches down the road with your automobile, it’s important to get regular oil, lube and filter changes. Adding or replacing oil keeps the engine and transmission running smoothly, and is part of routine maintenance and care for your car, van, SUV or truck. Whether you visit your mechanic every 3,000 miles on the button, or you wait a bit beyond, you can expect prompt service for oil changes, especially with franchises that focus on just that one service. But you may have some questions before dropping your car off for an oil and lube change. Here are some examples.

  • How quickly can you change my oil and filter?
    Most mechanics can perform an oil change in about 15 to 20 minutes if there’s no one else waiting. During busier periods, you may have to wait an hour or more, or drop off your car and pick it up later.

  • Do you change other types of fluids as well, such as transmission, brake, and power steering fluid?
    Mechanics should be able to change any type of oil, as well as check the engine, brake lights, and other systems on a routine basis to ensure everything is in working condition.

  • What brand of motor oil do you use?
    You want to ensure you’re getting the highest quality motor oil for your car, so inquire if your mechanic uses premium motor oil brands as opposed to value brands.

  • Do I need to make an appointment or can I just drop in?
    Many of the larger auto express centers have technicians on hand who service fleets of cars on a daily basis. During busy times, though, these and other smaller shops may get backed up, so you may want to call ahead first to determine the wait.

    "Took my truck to this Jiffy Lube to have the differentials drained and refilled and the oil and oil filter changed. Upon leaving the business my brakes didn't seem right. I made it across the street and at that time had no brakes at all. I had brakes before I went in to this place, but had none after wards. Go some other place to have oil changed due to their lack of experience with brake syste ..."

    "I stopped in for an oil change. The technician listed on the invoice stated that I had gone twice over the amount of miles. However, this was not accurate as my car only requires oil changes every 5,000 miles. Of course, I knew where she was headed and as I suspected, she recommended (an upsell) letting her flush it out at half-price. I declined, so she indicated that she could go ahead and ch ..."
