Price of Oil Change

The last 3 years I had Freightliner (Cincinnati and even Gaffney) change the oil and filters on my Cummins diesel engine. The price was anywhere between $200 - $215. I called this week local Freightliner is up to $275 (blamed on high oil prices) Cummins is at $270. I checked one of those express oil changes at Pilot and they want $210, but since they do not carry my filters, they will give me credit of $10 and I bring them in myself, comes out about the same price. not many other options in this area to consider.

Try Speedco. Or better yet, change it yourself. Not hard to do just the oil & filter.

$10 isn't much of a credit for BYO filter. It probably costs $25 or so.

X2 on that!! especailly at those kind of prices. buy you a quality filter wrench with the longest handle you can use and do it your self.
if you installlone of the oil pan valves it makes the job much cleaner, and the time you spen under the vehile drops as well.

Our MH is the 8.1 gas(7qts) and we take it to the same place as our reg vehicles. ($38.00) They will most likely charge 100-120 when we get a DP.

1 oil, 2 fuel and 32 quarts rotella $160.00 1 Onan filter 3 quarts oil $20.00 plus my labor to change it grease it and dispose of old oil. So do you really save doing it yourself, probably not, my time is worth something. But I guess it's the peace of mind I had CW change it once and only once they didn't tighten filter good.

Changed mine today, would be glad to pay to have it done but I have not found anyone I want near my MH! It's a shame the state of auto service now days! Well any type of service, just got off the phone with Verizon about my 4 G data line, all she wanted to do was get off the phone.

I am 72 years old; we have a DP: i change my own oil , Oil is $9.88 per gallonx 5 == $50.00 The filter from WIX or cat is about $20.00 While i'm under i grease the drive shaft and the U joints; It's an 1 hour job , and most any one can do it just put a jack under the hitch for a little added protection. Check and check everything. You'll be just fine. I rebottle the oil and I use the oil to start the fire in the woodstove insert; or drop it off at any auto parts that recycles,

Year 1...17 qt Rotella 1 filter, 1 grease tube
Year 2...17 qt Rotella 1 filter, 1 grease tube, 1 engine Fuel filter
Year 3...17 qt Rotella 1 filter, 1 grease tube, 1 W/S Fuel filter
Average per year for 3 years...$75.58

I'm retired so my time isn't worth much. Until I do my own maintenance.
Then it is worth more, then it was when I was working.

Fumoto Valve
makes it easy to put all oil back in containers mess free.

My brother owns Quick Lube Truck Center in Walton, Ky, near the flying J there. His price used to be $139 or so, but that was long ago. Just emailed him, and it's now $239 plus tax, and + $5.95. Not sure what the $5.95 is for. Said his price for oil has increased $1.15/gallon in the last two months.

I DIY my ford v10.

Last year I had my oil changed at speedco and oil and filters were $159 for medium size diesel(ISL). I think it included a grease job.
