Oil Change Cost Shock

Ca. Oil Shock

I took our 2019 F350 Diesel in for its annual oil change. An change in fuel filter also happened. The cost came to over $600 with almost $300 being the fuel filter change. I have never paid this much before. Was this fair?
Regards and Thanks
Bill

Shop rates today are through the roof everywhere.
Makes a good case for DIY oil changes and grease jobs.
Fuel filters are beyond some folks, but the hardy (cheap) guys do it all the time. Question is, "what is YOUR time worth?". I do it for therapy.

Don't know about a '19, but mine has two fuel filters. One's on top and is easy-pezy. The other is on the frame and a major PITA to do. I had a local garage just change that one (and I had the filter) and it cost me something like $125. Don't forget that an oil change includes a whole lot more oil than a car too.

Recent synthetic oil/oil filter/fuel filter change at Jiffy Lube in Heber City, UT was $85 oil + $5 oil filter charge + $113 labor + $130 fuel filter + $4/labor for a total with sales tax of $369.

I typically pay $125 for oil and filter change, tire rotation for my 2018 PSD. I change my own fuel filters and air filter which I buy online for $120. Check out pricing at Diesel Filters Online.

it is a complete rip. In fact everything about a diesel truck is a rip. I have a 22 Tundra as my daily driver and it has an extended warranty that prohibits diy oil changes. Everything else I change the oil. We dispose of the oil on environmental day.

You need to know that the dealer charges a flat rate for all service. It is likely 2.5 hrs to do the fuel filter by the book and it likely takes 15 mins. I have my own hoist. I can do the brakes on my wifes car in 2 hrs. Shop labour is $1100 if we take it to the dealer.

I know they need to make money but they don't need to make it all on one call.

Filter kit is $55 and the engine filter is $20.
$77 for 3 jugs of Motorcraft diesel oil.

I hope you never grace the doors of the shop you took your vehicle to because they are not your friend.

I often buy my parts at Walmart or RockAuto.com and do the filter changes myself. Because the SuperDuty's are so tall, they're easy to run up a ramp and to maintenance on myself.

Shop rates aside, these days they are using the least experienced, and often least conscientious, personnel to do routine maintenance. Well, I am inexperienced but very conscientious, so Iíve taken over all periodic maintenance on our diesels and the Jeep. Yes, you can also always save money DIY. Yes, what your shop charged seemed steep, but how much is an afternoon of your time worth? Iím retired so is uhÖ

For the record. The fuel filter/water separator arrangement on the 6.7 is just plain stupid. I really would like to meet the person(s) who designed that Mickey Mouse ridiculous setup! Every time I change the filters I see all the space on that big darned truck, and those filters crammed in with their stupid connectors, and I feel as though someone somewhere is just tickled with themselves for devising such a jack*** arrangement! Rant overÖ sorry.
