    Default Bring own Engine oil and oil filter to change

    I have own synthetics englin oil and synthetics oil filter but I don't have place to change myself. I am looking for someone or some store to change for me. Where is the best location to change and how much cost will be?

    Thank you in advance.

    I will do it for 3 hand jobs. However, I'm willing to negotiate down to 1 if you're willing to look me in the eyes while you do it.

    Bring it anywhere. Lube place, dealership, repair shops, tell them you have your own oil. They use your oil but charge you the same price for regular oil change.

    Don't listen to this user. I tried to take advantage of this deal, and in the end I had to pay Wal-mart to change my oil while I washed my hands.

    Go to a dealership, they'll charge you for like half an hour of labour but make sure you ask them what they plan to charge first.

    That's what I do. I buy the synthetic oil when it goes on sale at Canadian Tire and then take it into Hyundai.

    They charge me 5 bucks for the filter and 25 for the oil change lol.

    Save myself 30-35 bucks everytime with none of the mess.

    Now that I've worked at a few different shops I'd definitely suggest a dealership for a quick oil change, especially the ones with quick lube bays.

    Proper oil filters and the the chances of screw ups are drastically reduced for a quick oil change. Usually 30$ without oil.

    Id be hesistant to take it to some places without being able to completley watch them do it. I have heard stories in the past where instead of using the custmer supplied oil (usually premium stuff) they just put in their cheap stuff instead and kept the customer's oil to be re sold.

    I donít see why people still use these jiffy lube type places. It costs me $57 for an oil change done by my mechanic for all supplies, quick inspection and grease if itís needed. I do have to book a week ahead, but thatís not a huge deal. Unless Iím getting completely ripped off haha.
